Notts County have allowed young goalkeeper Liam Mitchell to join Mansfield on loan.

The 20-year-old will stay with the Blue Square Bet Premier side for a month.

The Stags saw goalkeepers Alan Marriott and Shane Redmond go down with injuries at training this week and Mitchell will go straight into their squad for the visit of Hereford.

Mitchell joined the Magpies as a youngster before signing professional terms at the start of last season.

The keeper is yet to make his debut for the Meadow Lane club but appeared 10 times for Tamworth during a loan spell last season.
