Mansfield Town today fully welcomed their three internationals back into the fold to prepare for Saturday’s game at Swindon Town.

Ryan Sweeney was back in today while Krystian Pearce and Omari Sterling-James were already back in light training earlier in the week.

“Sweens wasn’t due back until today so we have planning training around that – the tactical work we do with the 11 v 11 shape,” said manager David Flitcroft.

“We have had KP back in but it was be a light session with the travelling he’s had to do. He only played Sunday night so it’s been one to one training as we have had to take that into account. It’s the same with Omari.

“I’d have loved them all on the training ground earlier in the week, but it’s one of them. They have played a game and are coming from a long way away and you have to respect that.

“We have a full quota ready for today which will give us enough time.”
