Disley targets return

Mansfield midfielder Craig Disley is aiming for a return to fitness in time for the weekend clash with Swindon.

The 21-year-old limped out of the 1-0 defeat to Oldham after suffering medial knee ligament damage in an off-the-ball incident which ended with David Eyres being sent off.

Disley also missed the 3-2 midweek home win over Luton as well as the 3-1 defeat at Cheltenham on Saturday, but reckons he will be back in contention for a recall this weekend.

Disley said: "I've just tweaked the ligament, it was something I suffered with last season too.

"The physiotherapist gave me a schedule of about two weeks to get back so I'm aiming at the Swindon game. It's not too serious but it's best to treat these things with care."
