Crawley Town V Mansfield at Stadium : Match Preview

04 May 2017

Josh Payne banned for Crawley's season closer

Crawley must do without suspended midfielder Josh Payne for their final Sky Bet League Two match of the season against Mansfield, who still have an outside chance of making the play-offs.

Payne was shown a red card in the 2-0 defeat at Cambridge for giving away a late penalty.

Goalkeeper Glenn Morris was taken off at half-time with a groin injury so Yusuf Mersin is expected to stand in between the posts.

Defender Andre Blackman and Dutch forward Enzio Boldewijn played in the midweek Sussex Senior Cup loss defeat to Brighton Under-23s but should be included in Dermot Drummy's plans for the Stags clash.

Mansfield are set to be without forward Yoann Arquin once again.

The Martinique international missed last week's 1-0 loss at Portsmouth due to a hamstring problem.

Otherwise it appears as if Stags boss Steve Evans has a full squad to select from for the match against his old club.

Mansfield, currently 12th, head into the contest as one of a clutch of sides still in with a chance of securing a place in the top seven.
