Keith Curle spoke about the loan of young defender Alex Baptiste to Conference outfit Tamworth.

"Alex has been struggling to get his place back because we have two good central defenders in Rhys Day and Dave Artell who are doing a great job," Curle told the club's website.

"Luke Dimech is equally capable and is currently on the bench chasing the same position that Alex is after.

"With competition like this it makes sense to get Alex on loan so that he can carry on with his footballing education.

"I have spoken to him and he is happy about the deal and realises that he is still very much a part of the long term plans at Mansfield Town.

"He will continue training with us so he is getting the best of both worlds."
