Stags' boss John Dempster has confirmed that midfielder Willem Tomlinson could feature after missing Saturday's away defeat at Crawley.

Striker Andy Cook could also play some part on Tuesday night after recently returning from a knee injury.

Forward Nicky Maynard will miss the match against the U's having picked up a hamstring injury on Saturday in West Sussex.

The game will come too soon for the trio of long-term absentees Bobby Olejnik, Craig Davies and Jordan Graham. Wing-back Hayden White is also likely to miss out having only returned to training on Monday morning.

For the U's, midfielder Samir Carruthers is a doubt after suffering a hamstring injury in their win over Crewe on Saturday.
