Plymouth V Mansfield - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.

Craig Tanner back in the frame for Plymouth

Craig Tanner will go straight into Plymouth's squad as they prepare to host Mansfield this weekend.

The 21-year-old midfielder rejoined the club on a six-month loan having spent last season at Home Park.

Graham Carey and Jimmy Spencer should be fit despite picking up slight knocks during the Pilgrims' win at Notts County in midweek.

Karleigh Osborne (thigh) and David Fox (hip) are both being assessed as they look to overcome their injuries.

Striker Danny Rose will be missing for Mansfield after his red card in midweek.

Rose was sent off after just 11 minutes of the 1-0 home win over Yeovil and he begins a three-match ban.

Goalkeeper Scott Shearer missed that game after suffering concussion against Cheltenham and it remains to be seen whether he is ready to return. Brian Jensen will continue between the posts should Shearer remain absent.

Striker Pat Hoban and central defender Krystian Pearce have resumed training but may not be fit enough to be considered following their pre-season injuries. Midfielder Jack Thomas (groin) is still out.
