BIG BLOW FOR STAG BENNING
MANSFIELD Town’s goalscoring left-back Malvind Benning faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering a serious knee injury in last weekend’s defeat to Bristol Rovers.
The 21-year-old, who hit the headlines in recent week for his sensational volleyed goals, collided with goalkeeper Brian Jensen towards the end of the match.
Stags boss Adam Murray confirmed Benning will miss the majority of the season with the posterior cruciate ligament injury.
“Mal was obviously gutted, we were all gutted but we’ll rally round him and he knows we’ll look after him,” he said.
