Sutton United look to rebound after a heavy defeat on the weekend as they host Mansfield Town in EFL League Two action at the VBS Community Stadium. 

The Yellow Army were well-beaten 4-1 by Leyton Orient last time out, their fourth defeat in the last six league matches.

Mansfield are on a three-match unbeaten run in league play, lifting them seven points above the relegation zone.

Team news

Sutton will be without backup goalkeeper Bradley House, who is sidelined through injury.

Coby Rowe has established himself in defense over the last month, but is a doubt here. Omar Bugiel is likely to replace Richie Bennett in attack.

Mansfield will be without James Perch for the remainder of the season after the defender fractured his skull.

Fellow defender Richard Nartey is expected back in training this week having not featured since September.

Forward Rhys Oates (groin) and midfielder George Lapslie (hamstring) are both doubtful. 

Stephen Quinn and Jordan Bowery are also doubtful after picking up knocks in the victory over Scunthorpe United, although both could feature.

Predicted lineups

Sutton United: Bouzanis; Wyatt, John, Goodliffe, Kizzi; Randall, Smith, Eastmond, Ajiboye; Olaofe, Bugiel

Mansfield Town: Bishop; McLaughlin, Forrester, Hawkins, Hewitt; Quinn, Stirk, Maris, Clarke, Charsley; Bowery

Ones to watch

Isaac Olaofe (Sutton United)

He leads the Yellow Army’s scoring charts with four goals, including a pair of game-winners. Partnering with Bugiel gives Sutton a dangerous duo in attack.

Ollie Clarke (Mansfield Town)

The Stags skipper netted a brace in the win over Scunthorpe and has been one of the best players in the Mansfield squad all season, leading by example.
