This is going to be our toughest test yet.  Our record so far this season is a bit better than Mansfields' but last week they got their first points in a 3-0 win at Chester City and will be hoping to continue that run against us.

Adam Murray Their win was capped with a fine goal from, ex Harrier, Colin Larkin and they also have two other former Harriers on their books.  Neil McKenzie is still there as is Adam Murray.

The Stags manager, Keith Curle, had this comment to make;
"I am sure Adam Murray is looking forward to a game against his old club.  I was very pleased with his work ethic on Saturday.  He didn't give them any time or room and I believe midfield was where the game was won.

We're not worried though.  I think we're a better team without him.

Iyseden Christie might be fit for this game against his old team mates but if he is I expect he'll be on the bench for most of the game, coming on with ten minutes to go.  Will he score the winning goal?

Richie Appleby may also be on the bench now that he's nearing the fitness levels wanted by Jan Molby but the news about Youssou Diop is that he will miss the game with a calf injury.

One other important player we will be without is Simon Brown.  He was controversially sent off against Darlington last week and will miss this game.  Just when it was all starting to click.

Fringe player Chris McHale was injured during a midweek reserve team game so he won't be available.  Other than that we have injuries to Abdou Sall and Reuben Hazell still.  They look to be some time away from a return to the side.

Mansfield seem to have no injuries to report.
