Mansfield without defender Kyle Howkins for visit of Blackpool

Mansfield will be without defender Kyle Howkins for Tuesday's visit of Blackpool.

The West Brom loanee picked up a knee injury in training last week and will miss out, while fellow defender Lee Collins is a doubt.

Defender Alex Iacovitti will be missing again as he serves the second game of a three-match ban.

The Stags will hold a pitch inspection at 9.15am on Tuesday following heavy rainfall in Mansfield.

Gary Bowyer is likely to select the same Blackpool team for a fifth straight league game.

The former Blackburn boss has settled on a XI for the previous four fixtures in League Two and has been rewarded with 10 points from the 12 available.

Danny Philliskirk overcame illness to travel to Leyton Orient at the weekend, though he was only introduced off the bench late on, while Bowyer confirmed Colin Daniel is fine despite being on the brunt of a robust challenge in the 2-1 success.

The only absentees for Bowyer are Dean Lyness (ankle) and Jack Redshaw (shin splints).
