Midfielder Alex MacDonald will likely miss out after picking up a hamstring injury against Carlisle United in Mansfield's most recent game.

The game will also come too soon for wing-back Kellan Gordon, who is recovering from a back injury. Fellow defender Hayden White will continue to be assessed in the days leading up to the fixture.

The Shrimps will be without Rhys Oates for the match.
