Changes could be made for Stanley clash

13th February 2017

Mansfield Town boss Steve Evans says changes could be made to his line-up for Tuesday night's League Two clash at home to Accrington Stanley.

The Stags could strengthen their grip on a play-off place with victory over their visitors who are currently nineteen in the table.

But, Evans has warned that, in his opinion, Accrington are a better side than the Hartlepool United team his players faced at the weekend.

A 4-0 victory over the North East side on Saturday stretched Mansfield's unbeaten league run to eight matches and moved them up into the play-off zone.

With another home game in quick succession, Evans hinted at Monday's press conference as he did on Saturday evening that he will look to freshen up the eighteen he picks for the midweek encounter.

That could mean a return to the starting line-up for winger CJ Hamilton who was on the bench against Hartlepool whilst attacking players Ashley Hemmings and Patrick Hoban could also come into the squad.

Defenders Kyle Howkins and George Taft remain the only names on the injury list with Howkins set to play in a West Bromwich Albion U23s game on Monday night as part of his return to fitness.

Accrington come into Tuesday's encounter on the back of a 2-0 loss at Portsmouth on Saturday and have won just once in their last four games, that a 2-0 home victory over Notts County.

The Stags, meanwhile, have not been beaten in League Two since a home defeat to Morecambe on Boxing Day, conceding just twice in that time.

And, the club are hoping for another big crowd as the game is one of a new Buy One Get One Free offer where anyone who gets a ticket for the match also gets one for the next home clash with Newport County later this month for free.
