Not surprisingly after Saturday’s fine display in the 2-1 defeat at Wycombe and the injury situation, Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox named an unchanged side for tonight’s home clash with high-flying Morecambe.

The visitors have only lost one League game all season and sit second in the table.

Stags will have been pleased to see Kevin Ellison, so often their nemesis, start the night of the bench.

Stags boss Cox took his place in the dug-out after the FA took no further action following the referee sending him to the stand for kicking a water bottle at Wycombe at the weekend.

STAGS: Evtimov; Sutton, Riley, Tafazolli; Marsden, Murray, Clements, Bell, Beevers; Rhead, Bingham. Subs: Studer, Fisher, McGuire, Palmer, Heslop, Thomas, Taylor.

MORECAMBE: Roche, Kenyon, Hughes, Edwards, Sampson, Widdowson, Drummond, Fleming, McGowan, Parrish, Amond. Subs: Arestidou, Devitt, Wright, Williams, Ellison, Mullen, Goodall.

REFEREE: Stephen Martin of Staffordshire.
