Alex Iacovitti returns for Mansfield's game with Wycombe

Mansfield have Alex Iacovitti available again for the visit of Wycombe.

The defender, on loan from Nottingham Forest, has missed the last two matches while away on international duty with the Scotland Under-21 side.

Striker Matt Green will be hoping for a recall to the Stags' starting line-up after three goals in his last two substitute appearances. Should he get the nod on Saturday it will be at the expense of either Pat Hoban or Danny Rose.

Jack Thomas was back on the bench last weekend having been injured since the start of the season. The 20-year-old midfielder played almost an hour and scored in a reserve game on Wednesday so may be involved.

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth welcomes Adebayo Akinfenwa and Joe Jacobson back to the squad for the trip to Field Mill.

Akinfenwa was struggling with illness last week and Jacobson went down with cramp against Yeovil but both have recovered.

Garry Thompson remains a doubt after he took a blow to the ribs in the 1-0 defeat to the Glovers and Luke O'Nien and Myles Weston have returned to training but Saturday's game is too soon for them to return as the re-build their fitness levels.

Max Muller (hamstring) and Dayle Southwell (thigh) remain on the sidelines.
