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.

Yeovil are down to the bare bones as they look to end a run of 10 League Two games without a win.

James Bailey (knee), Alex Pattison (back) and Korrey Henry (groin) are likely to remain out while Omar Sowunmi (ankle) is a doubt along with Gabby Rogers (ankle).

Defender Shaun Donnellan left Huish Park this week, having started against Bury last weekend, after having his contract terminated by mutual consent.

On-loan Scunthorpe striker Olufela Olomola has returned to his parent club.
