The Mansfield Town side showed two changes as they prepared to chase three more points towards League Two safety on their first every visit to Morecambe’s Globe Arena this afternoon.

With Anthony Howell joining James Jennings on the suspended list, Lee Stevenson came in to play the advanced central midfield role.

There was also a change at left wing back where Darryl Westlake, who has usually operated at right wing back, came back in to replace Junior Daniel.

The Shrimps began the day five games without a win against a Stags side that had won three and drawn four of their last eight away games.

However, this was only the side’s fourth ever meeting and the Shrimps had won all three previous clashes.
