Bishop could be deployed against Scunthorpe

Mansfield midfielder Neal Bishop could be fit to face his former club Scunthorpe.

The 38-year-old, who joined the Stags from the Iron in the summer of 2018 after four years at Glanford Park, has missed the last three Sky Bet League Two matches with a swollen Achilles tendon.

Andy Cook (knee) and Craig Davies (ankle) are both making progress but Saturday’s game will come too soon for them to be involved, although Ryan Sweeney will be available after his red card in the defeat at Exeter was rescinded on the grounds of wrongful dismissal.

On-loan defender Conor Shaughnessy is expected to be in the squad after arriving from Leeds this week while Dion Donohue has had his contract terminated following a disciplinary investigation by the club.

Kevin Van Veen has given Scunthorpe boss Paul Hurst a selection dilemma ahead of the trip to the One Call Stadium.

The fit-again striker scored both goals in a man-of-the-match display as the Iron won 2-1 at Grimsby in the Trophy in midweek.

Recent signing Jamie Proctor also comes into consideration this weekend after missing the game at Carlisle because he was not registered in time.

Mansfield-born defender James Perch will miss out against his hometown club as he completes a three-match ban.
