Gary Bowyer hints at changes to Blackpool's line-up

Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer has hinted he will have to make changes against Mansfield.

Bowyer replaced only Danny Pugh with Jack Payne for the 0-0 draw with Grimsby following the Boxing Day victory at Hartlepool.

The Seasiders manager said: "We've got two games in three days so it's important we make sure we utilise the whole squad."

Colin Daniel (hamstring) and Mark Yeates (calf) both remain missing for Bowyer, who could call on Pugh, Michael Cain or Jamille Matt when he considers changes.

Mansfield are expected to add new signings Yoann Arquin, Joel Byrom, Ben Whiteman and Jake Kean to their squad.

French striker Arquin was unavailable for Saturday's home draw against Doncaster but is hoping to make his debut, while midfielders Byrom and Whiteman and goalkeeper Kean could all feature.

Striker Danny Rose turned in a man-of-the-match display against Doncaster after returning to the starting line-up and may continue, but boss Steve Evans said he will make several changes.

Defenders George Taft (hamstring) and Corbin Shires (knee) are still working their way back from surgery as the Stags chase their first league win in six matches.
