Two changes for Stags at Forest Green

MANSFIELD Town’s defence showed two enforced changes as they chased a fifth successive away win at Forest Green Rovers this afternoon.

With Tom Naylor and Ben Futcher joining Louis Briscoe on the suspended list after the midweek win at Wrexham, Joe Kendrick returned at left back and Martin Riley in the centre.

Otherwise the side was unchanged, though Rhys Day came into the 16 on the bench for the first time this season.

FOREST GREEN: Bittner, Hodgkiss, Stokes, Turley, Norwood, Klukowski, Griffin, Forbes, Graham, Rowe, Thomson. Subs: Turk, Imudia, Taylor, McDonald, Allen.

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

REFEREE: Andy Davies of Hampshire.
