Roberts makes Stags debut at York

NEW signing Gary Roberts made his debut for Stags today at York City.

The midfielder’s inclusion was one of two changes. He replaced Aman Verma in a 4-3-3 with Ritchie Sutton back from a one-game ban to replace the suspended John Dempster in the heart of defence.

The sides drew 1-1 at Field Mill on Boxing Day.
