Seanan Clucas: Pushing for a start

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Bristol Rovers and Mansfield Town at Memorial Stadium.

Bristol Rovers have no fresh injury worries as they look for the point against Mansfield needed to secure League Two safety.

The Pirates host Mansfield knowing a draw would see them survive having picked up a huge victory against Wycombe last weekend, but defeat to the Stags would leave Darrell Clarke's men relying on either Wycombe or Northampton losing.

Seanan Clucas will hope to keep his place in the starting line-up having teed up David Clarkson's winning goal at Adams Park and Clarke could name an unchanged XI.

Victory over Mansfield would be just the third time this season that Rovers have won back-to-back league games.

Matt Rhead will miss Mansfield's final game of the season at Bristol Rovers.

Rhead is suspended following his red card during the home defeat to Torquay last weekend and the striker will sit on the sidelines along with the injured Ryan Tafazolli, Alan Marriott and Ian Deakin.

Centre-back Tafazolli remains out with a hip problem sustained in training while goalkeepers Marriott (dislocated finger) and Deakin (hip) have still not recovered, so Lewis Price will continue between the posts.

Right-back Darryl Westlake is fit again after a hamstring problem and he will return to the squad, which Stags boss Paul Cox has confirmed will include youngsters Liam Marsden and Jack Thomas.
