Stags Boss Keith Curle was delighted to by the news coming out of the treatment room today:

Club Physio Ian Pearce announced this morning that Curle could have nearly a full squad to select from for the forthcoming fixture against Cambridge United.

The most important news for Stags fans that believe that we are need of strikers is that Curle could have Mendes, Christie and Larkin to choose from as well as the two youngsters Craig Mitchell and Chris Beardsley.

Colin Larkin who has been absent for some time with a hamstring problem could well be back in contention for this week's match at Cambridge. He has been undergoing a strict regime of injections into the hamstring throughout the course of his absence and returned to training today where Keith Curle described him as "Looking as good and as sharp as he ever has done".

Alongside Larkin Iyseden Christie who has returned from a three match suspension should be fit after returning to training today following a Bruised knee picked up in training. The other striker Junior Mendes again picking up a slight knock during training has been benefiting from Ian Pearce's magic sponge and looks as though he will be available for selection.

The news on the back row, although good isn't quite as a positive as the forward men, both Dave Artell and Luke Dimech are doubtful although the latter has now returned to full training and is looking like he will be returning to duty very soon. Bobby Hassell who missed out on last weekend's home game against Yeovil has declared himself fit after recovering from a slight tear in his abdomen and along with left back Tony Vaughan should be returning to the squad on Saturday.

Lee Williamson will be siting the Cambridge match out to recover fully from his hamstring operation ready for his return in a weeks time when we play host to Darlington at home on the 4th October.
