The Ammies still have an outside chance of reaching the play-offs, but must win their remaining two fixtures and hope for results elsewhere to go their way.
Midfielders Matty Willock and Josh Morris remain sidelined while defender Ashley Eastham is a doubt.
Captain Ollie Clarke will return to training this week after suffering a groin injury last month.
Richard Nartey and Kellan Gordon are still sidelined.
Salford City: King; Ndaba, Turnbull, Vassell, Lowe; Kelly, Watson, Lund; Hunter, Smith, Thomas-Asante
Mansfield Town: Bishop; McLaughlin, Hawkins, Rawson, Hewitt; Stirk; Longstaff, Maris, Lapslie; Oates, Akins
Ones to watch
Brandon Thomas-Asante (Salford City)
He paces the Ammies with 11 goals in 37 appearances and the 23-year old has formed a dangerous strike duo with Matt Smith, who has contributed seven goals.
Rhys Oates (Mansfield Town)
The 27-year-old leads a balanced Mansfield attack with nine goals while also contributing five assists, although he hasn't scored since the Stags defeated relegated Oldham Athletic in late March.
Mansfield came from behind to defeat Salford 2-1 in the teams' prior matchup in December for their ninth win in ten games.
Mansfield came close to equalizing as Stephen McLaughlin's cross was volleyed towards goal by Jordan Bowery, but Theo Vassell cleared away.
After the Stags came close twice more, McLaughlin's free-kick from the left was fired home by Rhys Oates to make it 1-1 after 36 minutes.
And the hosts won it as the dangerous McLaughlin caught Salford goalkeeper Tom King out with a low free-kick inside the near post from 25 yards out.
The match will be shown live on Sky Sports with kick-off set for 12:30 BST on Monday May 2.
