FOREST GREEN head coach Mark Cooper may dip into the free agent market.

Injuries to Matt Mills, Nathan McGinley, Kevin Dawson, Dayle Grubb and George Williams mean Cooper is keeping an eye out for potential fresh faces to bolster his small squad.

However, Cooper is boosted with the return of Liam Shephard who is set to feature against John Dempster's in-form Mansfield Town on Saturday.

Cooper sat down with SNJ sports editor Ash Loveridge and BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Paul Furley.
