Mansfield v Grimsby Team News

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 12/03/2013

GRIMSBY head to Mansfield looking to bounce back from the home defeat by Kidderminster, but it doesn't come much harder than against a team which have won the last seven games and are now 4 points above Grimsby in the league. The match is subject to a pitch inspection but Mansfield are hopeful it will go ahead.

Grimsby have two injury worries. Derek Niven (groin) is ruled out and Sean Pearson (knee) is 50/50. Andi Thanoj may continue in midfield in place of Niven, or Hull City midfielder Dougie Wilson could come into midfield. If Pearson is not ready then Tom Naylor will continue to partner Ian Miller in defence. Any other changes will be tactical/rotational as the managers try to keep the players fresh and pick a team which they feel with match Mansfield.

Mansfield have striker Louis Briscoe back from injury, but he may struggle to start the game because of the form Mansfield are in. The Stags scored four games in an impressive win over Stockport in their last games.

Win, lose, or draw, nothing will be decided tomorrow but defeat for Grimsby would make it difficult to win the league as it would leave Mansfield seven points above Town.
