Strong Stags’ side to face Chesterfield
mansfieldtown.net, 20th March 2017

Tomorrow’s Central League fixture away to Chesterfield will be used for first team members to stake their claim for a place against Morecambe on Saturday, boss Steve Evans said today.

We face the Spireites in our penultimate Central League fixture at the Proact Stadium tomorrow (21 March, 2.00pm kick-off), and the match is free for spectators to attend.

And with the Sky Bet League Two clash against Morecambe to prepare for on Saturday, the boss has challenged the players involved tomorrow to put themselves in contention for a first team spot.

“The whole lot are going; everyone that needs game time is going tomorrow,” the manager said.

“It’s getting played at Chesterfield’s stadium, so that’s nice and it’s good, the same as we’d do now maybe with the odd reserve game towards the end [of the season].

Mansfield Town were today boosted by the news that injured defender Krystian Pearce should be back in action in the next week or two.

Pearce, so consistent this season, limped off the pitch during the first half of Saturday’s 2-0 win over Carlisle with some crucial games looming as Stags try to finish in the play-offs.

“Some people can come back from a strain in four or five days and some people are nine or 10.
