Midfielder Andy Burgess is available for Mansfield as he has finished his month-long suspension for betting on games he played in.Striker Jake Speight (knee) and defender Luke Jones (suspension) are both out while midfielder Oliver Hotchkiss (illness) is a doubt.

Rushden defender Simon Downer faces a late fitness test after suffering a back injury against Oxford in midweek.

Craig Farrell and Jefferson Louis will compete for a place up front.

Rushden & Diamonds assistant manager Michael Stone told BBC Radio Northampton:

"We've played Mansfield at home and we got a good result.

"They're physically very tough and they rely on set-pieces.

"If we can counteract those elements of their team with our style of play, we might be able to pose them problems."
