Nigel Clough believes his Mansfield side will host a different Wanderers squad tonight than they should have faced three weeks ago

No Whites fan needs to recall that this will be the third attempt to start the game at One Call Stadium

The initial date of January 26 fell victim to frozen ground whose surface was deemed waterlogged seven days later, when Ian Evatt’s men had already reached the ground

Clough’s side had won five straight League games before the scheduled opening date and are still heading into tonight’s undefeated eighth game due to draws at Walsall and Colchester

The seasoned former Burton, Derby and Sheffield United boss is well aware of how things have changed in the interim at UniBol, but with a host of new faces settling in for Wanderers

“I think we would have played the first game the first time it was postponed. I think if we left the decision until later I think we would have played then,” Clough told the Stags website yesterday.

“We would certainly have played the night after if Bolton had accepted but I hope we have the game tomorrow night

“They will be a different proposition than they probably would have been a few weeks ago

“That’s why we were probably desperate to play for the first time because we were in such good shape We wanted to play every few days before the break

“We have to try to get this back on track and we’re not far from it at the moment, but Bolton will certainly be a little more confident than a few weeks ago.

“We had two good points on the road and now we need something from these next two home games, starting with Bolton”

In terms of availability, George Lapslie remains at three or four weeks with a hamstring injury while Oli Sarkic (thigh) and Kellan Gordon (knee) will not be available to face the Wanderers but are closing in on returns to the action

“We think players get into a rhythm or routine by playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday,” Clough added

“When you stop, no matter what you do in training, unfortunately you get a few hits

“It is inevitable that you will be injured but I think the team is well equipped to deal with it”
