STAGS: Mansfield Town v Stevenage team news


New Mansfield Town signing James Baxendale has been named in the starting XI for today’s visit of Stevenage.

Baxendale was signed on the morning of the game from Walsall as part of boss Adam Murray’s attempts to bring more goals and flair to Stags.

Striker Matt Green will lead the attacking line after recovering from injury.

Jack Thomas, who was targeted for abuse on social media last week, also retains his place in midfield.

Mansfield will also welcome back Nicky Hunt after an eight game injury absence.

Mansfield have slipped outside the League Two play-off places after winning just one of their last six outings.

Stags: Jensen, Pearce, Chapman, Clements, Green, Westcarr, Tafazolli, Hunt (C), J Thomas, Adams, Baxendale.
