Stags' boss David Flitcroft has made one change to the side that drew 1-1 with Cambridge United for this afternoon's match against Northampton Town.
Midfielder Alex MacDonald sustained a knee injury in last Saturday’s game at Cambridge and hasn’t trained since. He is set to have an operation on Tuesday and is set to be out for six weeks.
Due to this, on-loan Derby midfielder Timi Elsnik comes into the side, making his first league start.
The Stags are also without defender Hayden White with an ankle injury.
Striker Craig Davies returns to the 18, making the bench for today's match.
STAGS' XI: Olejnik, Preston, Pearce, Sweeney, Hamilton, Bishop, Elsnik, Benning, Khan, Walker, Rose.
SUBS: Logan, Gibbens, Butcher, Atkinson, Sterling-James, Davies, Graham.
