STRIKER Marcus Carver has returned to the starting XI for Stanley’s trip to Mansfield.

Carver has got the nod up front with Josh Windass dropping to the bench.

Otherwise it’s the same starting XI that overcame Plymouth 1-0 last week.

Loan signing Lee Molyneux is on the bench for his first game back in his third spell with Stanley.

STANLEY: Chapman, Hunt. Aldred, Atkinson, Winnard; Procter, Joyce; O’Sullivan, Maguire, Naismith, Carver.

Subs: Simpson, McCartan. Windass, Hatfield, Mingoia, Molyneux, Bowerman
