Mansfield vs Yeovil preview
Last Updated: 11/01/19 12:00pm
Mansfield will be without Neal Bishop as they look to bounce back from a rare defeat when they take on Yeovil.
The midfielder must serve a one-match ban after his red card at Carlisle, where the Stags' 17-game unbeaten run in League Two was ended with a 3-2 loss last weekend. Mansfield manager David Flitcroft has options to replace Bishop and he will choose between Otis Khan, Will Atkinson and Calum Butcher.
Back-up goalkeeper Jake Kean suffered concussion while playing in a reserve team match this week and he will not be available on Saturday. Flitcroft is trying to sign a keeper on loan ahead of Saturday's match.
