BIG BLOW FOR STAG BEN­NING

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

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.
