Three changes for Stags against Morecambe

Mansfield Town made three changes for this afternoon’s visit of Morecambe.

Ritchie Sutton and Lee Stevenson were ruled out with injuries while Godfrey Poku, after a decent debut at Burton in midweek, found himself dropped to the bench.

Playing a 4-4-2 formation, Stags welcomed on-loan new boy Darryl Westlake into the side at right back, Anthony Howell replaced Poku in midfield and Ross Dyer returned to partner Ollie Palmer up front.

Stags began the day without a win in nine League games and aiming to halt a run of five straight League defeats.

Morecambe haven’t fared much better, only winning one of their last eight outings.

STAGS: Marriott; Westlake, Dempster, Riley, Beeevers; Clucas, Howell, Clements, Daniel; Palmer, Dyer. Subs; Rhead, Tafazolli, Speight, Hutchinson, Meikle, Deakin, Poku.
