Stags unchanged for Alfreton derby

STAGS boss Paul Cox named an unchanged line-up for today’s mouthwatering local derby with Alfreton Town at Field Mill.

Louis Briscoe was left out of the 16 with a groin injury and Ben Futcher failed to regain his fitness in time too.

Anthony Howell returned from a three-match ban but had to be content with a place on the bench against his former club.

On the Alfreton bench was Chris Senior, who bagged that late winner for Darlington against Stags at Wembley in the FA Trophy final in May.

STAGS: Marriott; O’Neill, Sutton, Riley, Kendrick; Dyer, Murray, Bolland, Meikle; Green, Connor. Subs: Redmond, Worthington, Todd, Howell, Day.

ALFRETON: Day; Brown, Young, Franks, Potter, Law; Moult, Hall, Mullan; Clayton, Wilson. Subs: Senior, Jarman, Makin, Hawes, Ellison.

REFEREE: Ross Joyce of Middlesbrough.
