Cambridge v Mansfield preview

Date published: Friday 17th April 2015 3:04

None of Cambridge’s injured players are expected to return to the squad for the visit of Mansfield.

Ryan Donaldson (hamstring), Harrison Dunk (ribs) and Chris Dunn (groin) have all been playing with niggles recently and will probably do so again as the U’s look to guarantee their League Two status on Saturday.

Liam Hughes has been recovering from illness and is unlikely to feature again this season and the same can be said of Jordan Chiedozie (calf), Ian Miller (knee), Luke Chadwick and Rory Gaffney, who are both recovering from surgery.

Cambridge manager Richard Money said: “It’s a pretty long injury list to finish the season with and is probably no different to what we’ve had throughout the whole season.”

Reggie Lambe scored Mansfield’s winning goal against Tranmere to all but guarantee the Stags’ survival, before getting sent off. So the Bermuda international midfielder is suspended for the trip to the Abbey Stadium.

Defenders Martin Riley and Lee Beevers and goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley did not play in midweek due to knocks and the trio continue to be assessed.

Matt Rhead, Rakish Bingham, Ricky Ravenhill, Alex Fisher and Terry Hawkridge are all options for Mansfield manager Adam Murray, who wants his side to finish the season in style.

“I want to win the remaining three matches,” he said. “I want us to get our performances back on track and pick some more points up.”
