Stags unchanged at snowy Southport

MANSFIELD Town were unchanged from the team that triumphed 3-1 at Stockport in midweek for today’s game away at snow-bound Southport.

Many games fell victim to the weather today, but the Sandgrounders’ Haigh Avenue pitch survived a morning inspection after snow, left on overnight to protect it from frost, was cleared.

The home side were not permitted to play on-loan Stags duo Andy Owens and Godfrey Poku.
