mansfieldtown.net reports that Tom Curtis and Junior Mendes both missed training today following slight injury niggles picked up on Saturday. Curtis finished 90 minutes but was troubled with a slight hamstring and Junior who picked up a knock to the knee, limped off in the 85th minute. Both however with a little rest and TLC from physio Kev Farley should be back in contention for selection at the weekend when we travel to Northampton.

Other players that should be in contention are Alex John-Baptiste who has now fully recovered from the flu virus as should Tony Vaughan who is now complaining of Flu like symptoms although he will not be playing in the December 13th fixture against Lincoln City as he will sitting out a one match suspension for accumulating five yellow cards.

Meanwhile the Stags Reserves are back in action tomorrow away to Chesterfield. Included in the game tomorrow are Chris Beardsley, Neil MacKenzie, Iyseden Christie and Alex John-Baptiste. Keith Curle told mansfieldtown.net today “Iyseden did a great job on Saturday against Huddersfield and now needs to build on that to win his first team place back, he really needs to play for 90 minutes if he is to be involved and he realises that. His performance at the weekend was terrific and we saw glimpses of what Iyseden is capable of.”

mansfieldtown.net reports that Jake Buxton has completed his short term loan spell away form the Mill and is looking like a much better player for it. “Bucko has returned from his short spell away and is looking a lot sharper has a found an extra yard of pace and lost some weight.” said stags Boss Keith Curle. “He has been undergoing double training schedules and the extra work is obvious he is sharper faster and will definitely be in contention for next weekends game against Northampton” he added. Other Loanee, Andy White who is undergoing a short term at Kidderminster has been doing well and also looking better for playing first team football. On Saturday during their fixture against Torquay United Andy was a key player and was credited with an assist for Kiddies only goal of the game.
