Craig Disley has been ruled out of Mansfield's clash with Luton Town. Disley sustained medial knee ligament damage in an off-the-ball incident against Oldham on Saturday. Lee Williamson is likely to step in, but goalkeeper Kevin Pilkington misses out while recovering from a punctured lung.

Luton will be without top scorer Steve Howard after he suffered a knee injury during the defeat at Notts County. Michael Leary is in line for his full debut while Duncan Jupp could make his first start after appearing as a substitute against County. Emmerson Boyce is missing with a groin injury, but Russell Perrett is pushing for a return to the starting line-up after recovering from ongoing groin problems.

Luton will be without top scorer Steve Howard against Mansfield after he suffered a knee injury during the 2-1 defeat at Notts County.
Manager Joe Kinnear's side suffered a setback to their play-off hopes with the defeat, and losing Howard represents a double blow.
Kinnear will be forced into changes, with youngster Michael Leary in line for his full debut.
Former Wimbledon defender Duncan Jupp is also in contention for his first start after appearing as a substitute against County.
Defender Emmerson Boyce is missing with a groin injury, but Russell Perrett is pushing for a return to the starting line-up after recovering from ongoing groin problems.
Long-term injury victim Adrian Forbes is around two weeks away from a comeback game following his knee injury.
