Mansfield Town vs Notts County - Mansfield midfielder Colin Daniel doubtful for Notts County clash

Posted Thursday, April 14, 2016 by PA

Mansfield midfielder Colin Daniel is doubtful for their Sky Bet League Two derby game with Notts County.

Daniel, on loan from Port Vale, was forced off with a back injury after opening the scoring in last weekend's 2-1 win at Carlisle - the Stags' ninth away league victory of the season.

Mal Benning impressed after replacing Daniel and could be in line to start, while Emmanuel Dieseruvwe should shake off a knock picked up at Carlisle to feature.

Krystian Pearce (suspension) and Chris Clements (hamstring) are absent again.

The visitors will check on Curtis Thompson after the midfielder missed the back-to-back 1-0 home wins against Stevenage and Hartlepool through injury.

Magpies manager Mark Cooper made only one change in midweek and any alterations will again be kept to a minimum as Notts look to record three straight league victories for the first time since October 2014.

Teenager Montel Gibson made his debut as a late substitute against Hartlepool and he is set to be involved again, with Cooper hinting that more of the club's youngsters might feature in the remaining fixtures.

Blair Adams (ankle) and Will Hayhurst (knee) both remain out and are unlikely to play again this season.
