Striker Liam Mandeville looks set to keep his place for Doncaster

Posted Friday, December 01, 2017 by PA

Liam Mandeville is set to keep his place in Doncaster's starting line-up for Sunday's FA Cup second-round clash with Scunthorpe at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The young striker scored in the midweek Checkatrade Trophy exit at Rochdale and will continue to replace Andy Williams, who is out with a long-term ankle injury.

Fellow young striker Alfie Beestin is also set to keep his place as fellow strikers Alfie May (groin) and Alex Kiwomya (illness) struggle to return to full fitness.

Boss Darren Ferguson insisted he had no concerns over defender Ben Whiteman, who was forced off in injury time during the penalties defeat at Spotland.

Scunthorpe head into the game on a high after six straight League One wins and with striker Lee Novak looking to make a timely return.

Novak missed the Iron's win over Charlton after failing a fitness test on a recent ankle injury, but could be in line for a return for the short trip to South Yorkshire.

Josh Morris will also be pushing for a recall to the starting line-up after making his return from a hamstring strain as a second half substitute against the Addicks.

Simon Church (hamstring), Sam Mantom (groin), Luke Williams (hamstring) and Jonathon Margetts (knee) are all out.
