White still safe

Mansfield Town boss Peter Shirtliff has reassured goalkeeper Jason White that his place in the team is not under threat. The 22-year-old blundered to gift Walsall their second goal in last weekend's 4-0 thrashing at the Bescot Stadium, but Shirtliff plans to select him for Saturday's clash with Notts County. "Jason is fine about what happened. He has held his hand up and there are no problems," he told the Evening Post. "I am sticking with him for Saturday because he is mentally tough enough to deal with it. "No keeper in the world can say they have never dropped a clanger, but it goes with the territory that you make less mistakes the more experienced you are."
