Strong Stags team set to play in reserves

20th March 2017

A strong Mansfield Town side is set to play in the reserve game at neighbours Chesterfield on Tuesday afternoon.

The match will be seen as a vital part of the club's preparations for Saturday’s League Two trip to Morecambe.

First team boss Steve Evans told Mansfield 103.2 at Monday morning's press conference that fringe players who missed out on the weekend win over Carlisle United will be involved.

He said: "The whole lot are going, everyone that needs game time is going.

"It's being played at Chesterfield's stadium so that'll be nice and, hopefully, I'll see a number of players put themselves into contention for Morecambe.

"We have to trust all of our players and the team that started on Saturday is unlikely to be the one that starts at Morecambe as it's a different game."

One player who will definitely miss the trip to the Globe Arena is captain Lee Collins who is recovering from a hamstring strain and will be on the sidelines for one to two weeks.

And, the club will find out later this week how long centre back Krystian Pearce will be out after he limped off during the 2-0 victory over Carlisle.

His knock is not as serious as first thought but it is not yet known when he will return from an ankle strain.

Meanwhile, Evans revealed that striker Shaq Coulthirst will be visiting the dentist on Tuesday to have a tooth replaced that was knocked out in a challenge late in the match at the weekend.
