Boss awaiting scan results on Clements and Westlake
Mansfield Town could be without creative playmaker Chris Clements and loanee full-back Darryl Westlake for Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two match against Torquay United.
Clements, 24, missed our Easter Monday defeat to Cheltenham Town due to a knee injury, whilst Westlake was substituted at half-time with a hamstring problem.
Both players had scans on their respective injuries yesterday, with results expected later today, and boss Paul Cox is keeping his fingers crossed for good news.
“They both went for scans yesterday, and we’ll get the feedback later today,” said our manager. “Hopefully, there’s nothing too seriously wrong with either of them, but I think both were a little bit of fatigue injuries.
“It’s been a long season for us and sometimes you get these niggles.
“I think the worst case scenario with Chris is that it’s a knee so that could be a bad one, but I’m hoping it’s just a tweak. With Darryl, I’m hoping it’s just a bit of tightness in there and not a pull.”
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Lewis Price is expected to again wear the gloves in Saturday’s encounter, as both Alan Marriott and Ian Deakin remain sidelined through injury.
