Ramsden stepped into the centre of defence for the last 30 minutes against Chesterfield on Saturday and did not look out of place as he gave yet another impressive performance.
Unless something changes over the next week or so, Ramsden will team up with Craig Ireland at the back and either Danny Stone or Richard Holmes will drop in at right back.
Dearden told the Nottingham Evening Post:
"David Reeves was the only player causing us a problem in the air and Nicky Fenton was handling him without a problem.
"But Simon coped with everything that was thrown at him and he will probably have to play in the middle again against Mansfield.
"We also have Craig Ireland to consider too, so we will be able to cover one way or another." he added.
