“It’s one we’re going to have to call just before the game with 24 hours in the bank.

“We’re trying, the good thing with Mason is his attitude, which I keep going on about, he’ll give everything to try to get out there and play for this club, particularly a game of this size.

“We’ll have every opportunity and try to get him there.

“We won’t take any risks with him individually, obviously, because there’s a bigger picture, but we’ll do our best.”
