The Welshman has been released by the Stags following the conclusion of a disciplinary investigation.

Donohue departed Fratton Park at the end of last season after making 50 appearances following his August 2017 arrival from Chesterfield.

He penned a two-year deal at Field Mill and made his debut in their Carabao Cup defeat to Morecambe last month.
