Mansfield Town manager Adam Murray revealed during this morning's news conference that midfielder Chris Clements could miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury.
The 26-year-old was substituted during the first half of Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Hartlepool United and upon receiving the results of a scan, Murray revealed that the injury is worse than feared.
"It's probably Clem's season done. Obviously it's a gutting blow for us. We are down to bare bones now and he went for a scan yesterday and the results weren't good.
"So we're going to have to reshuffle and reshape and have a look what we can do for Saturday."
Separately, defender Krystian Pearce has been suspended for three games by the FA following his red card against Pools last weekend and the manager says the 26-year-old needs to make better decisions after being dismissed for the third time this season.
"Krystian's got to learn from his mistakes, because that's three games he's going to miss now.
"I want to stand up for him and I want to protect him because he's been a good player for us, but he's got to learn from his mistakes."
Supporters will be able to watch Adam Murray's new conference on Stags Player HD later today.
