The Stags will be without striker Danny Rose for the match as he continues his recovery from a hamstring injury. Manager John Dempster says that Rose is expected to return to training later this week.

The game will also likely come too soon for fellow frontman Craig Davies who will continue to feature for the reserves ahead of a return to the first team in the next few weeks.

Wing-back Hayden White will miss the clash due to an ongoing leg injury. The 24-year-old is expected to make a return to training in the next week or two.

The Stags bowed out of the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday following a 2-0 defeat against Sky Bet League One outfit Shrewsbury Town.

The amber and blue made it to the next stage of the Trophy last month with an impressive 2-1 win away at Burton Albion.

Port Vale recorded a good win on Saturday, beating fellow Sky Bet League Two side Cheltenham Town 3-1 away from home, with frontman Tom Pope scoring a hat-trick.
