Reggie Lambe returned to the Mansfield Town side for this afternoon’s home clash with bottom club Hartlepool United.

He came in for suspended fellow winger Rob Taylor, who was starting a three-game ban for his red card in last weekend’s 1-0 win at AFC Wimbledon.

Otherwise boss Adam Murray stuck with the players who served him proud in that excellent win last weekend, achieved despite playing with 10 men for an hour.

Hartlepool had lost seven and drawn four of their previous nine League games but, like Stags, have also appointed a new manager with the experienced Ronnie Moore now at the helm.

STAGS: Evtimov; Sutton, Tafazolli, Waterfall, Freeman; Lambe, Clements, McGuire, Brown; Oliver, Rhead. Subs: Studer, Riley, Bell, Bingham, Palmer, Heslop, Beevers.
HARTLEPOOL UNITED: Flinders, Austin, Holden, Bates, Franks, Harewood, Woods, Featherstone, Jones, Duckworth, Ironside. Subs: Walker, Compton, Fenwick, Lanzoni, Schmeltz, Green, Maxted.
