Stags unchanged as Oxford game goes ahead

Mansfield Town were unchanged for this afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two game at high-flying Oxford United.

But reserve keeper Ian Deakin replaced striker Ross Dyer on the bench.

The game survived an early morning pitch inspection after yesterday’s heavy rainfall.
