Two changes for Stags against Spireites

Stags made two changes for this afternoon’s big local derby at home to Chesterfield.

With Darryl Westlake suspended at right wing back, Lee Beevers won the race with Ritchie Sutton to replace him.

Paul Cox also opted for a battling central midfield with Lee Stevenson left out and Jamie McGuire returning.

Top scorer Sam Clucas, back from illness, could only make the bench, with striker Jake Speight also a welcome sight on there after coming through a midweek reserve game.

STAGS: Marriott; Dempster, Tafazolli, Riley; Beevers, Murray, Howell, McGuire, Jennings; Rhead, Palmer. Subs: Sutton, Stevenson, Clucas, Speight, Clements, Meikle, Daniel.
CHESTERFIELD: Lee, Banks, Hird, Morsy, Cooper, Darikwa, Richards, Roberts, Humphreys, Evatt, Kearns. Subs: Smith, O’Shea, Ryan, Doyle, Gnanduillet, Bennett, Dunbavin.
REFEREE: Darren Bond of Lancashire.
