Mansfield boss Carlton Palmer has offered a contract to his ex-Sheffield Wednesday team-mate Kevin Pressman.
Pressman will be in goal for Friday's friendly with Huddersfield
The Stags are short of goalkeeping cover after Kevin Pilkington's departure to Notts County and have turned to 37-year-old Pressman.
"We've had to go back to the drawing board regarding the keeper situation," Palmer told the club's website.
"Kevin will be playing on Friday against Huddersfield. We'll just have to wait and see where we go from here."
Pressman, who left Hillsborough last summer after making more than 400 League appearances, had spells last season with Championship sides Leicester, Leeds and Coventry.
The Stags recently missed out on the signing of ex-Carlisle stopper Matt Glennon - who changed his mind after shaking hands on a deal to move to Field Mill.
