Stockport Express:

STOCKPORT County defender Ross Greenwood could well feature in Saturday’s crunch clash at Mansfield.

Greenwood, aged 20, limped out of last weekend’s impressive 2-2 draw at League Two leaders Leyton Orient with a leg injury which manager Chris Turner initially thought may well have been a fracture. However, a scan has revealed no damage and Greenwood could well feature at right-back again at Field Mill.

Turner said: "Ross is improving daily and could still make it for the Mansfield game. We’ll know for definite if he’s training by Friday.

"Ross has done well this season, he’s been ever so consistent in what is his first full season with us."

Meanwhile, French midfielder Mickael Wolski also looks like being available this weekend now that he has recovered from a bacterial infection. He is now back in training.

The Hatters’ only definite injury absentee this weekend will be Tony Vaughan, who has suffered a slight setback on his way back from knee trouble.

He can’t play in next week’s FA Cup tie at Hereford, so Turner is not rushing the former Manchester City defender back into training until next week.

County have another opportunity to pull away from the lower reaches of the table with victory at Mansfield on Saturday.

Boss Turner added: "It is a big game, but people make it big by looking at the league table.

"I see Saturday as an opportunity for us to pull away from the bottom two, from Mansfield in particular.

"It would be nice to get a result, we played very well at Orient on Saturday and after the FA Cup game we’ve got two home games on the bounce so hopefully we can then pick up a few more points."
