White a doubt as Mansfield host Morecambe

Hayden White is a major doubt for Mansfield’s League Two clash with Morecambe on Saturday.

The defender missed the Stags’ opening draw with Newport last weekend because of a hamstring strain and Tuesday’s EFL Cup game, also against Morecambe, may be a more realistic prospect for his return.

CJ Hamilton will definitely be available, though. He limped out of the Newport clash but the damage is nothing worse than heavy bruising.

Will Tomlinson remains sidelined by his knee problem but is expected to return to training on Friday as he builds up to a comeback.

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley must decide whether to make changes following the disappointment of their opening loss to Grimsby.

Bentley gave full debuts to four of his new signings – Adam Buxton, John O’Sullivan, Lewis Alessandra and Shaun Miller, with Cole Stockton coming on as a substitute.

Stockton, signed from Tranmere, will be among those hoping to force his way into the starting line-up, with Morecambe ineffective as an attacking force last weekend.

Striker A-Jay Leitch-Smith, who has been sidelined by a serious hamstring injury since January, is close to a comeback.
