Clucas set for Stags start
Sam Clucas could be in line to start for Mansfield against Bury.
The Stags' leading scorer made his return from a five-week absence with ankle ligament damage as a 51st-minute substitute during the 2-2 home draw with Wycombe on Saturday.
The 11-goal midfielder is not thought to have suffered any ill effects and on Tuesday night manager Paul Cox could include him in his XI for the first time since December 17.
Midfielder Jamie McGuire and defender Martin Riley are fit again after respective groin and leg injuries and along with Clucas, Lee Beevers, Lindon Meikle, Colin Daniel and Ollie Palmer are options for Cox should he wish to switch things up.
Bury boss David Flitcroft will be able to call upon three new signings when they travel to Field Mill.
Midfielder Andrew Tutte and strikers Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Clive Platt all joined the Shakers on Friday and with the game at Accrington called off the following day, their bows could come at Mansfield.
Danny Mayor will serve the second game of his three-match ban, which the midfielder incurred in the 4-0 loss against Chesterfield.
The Shakers announced Marcos Navas, brother of Manchester City's Jesus Navas, left the club by mutual consent at the end of last week while striker Regan Walker is still struggling for fitness.
