Jacob Davenport is set to undergo a scan to determine the extent of his injury sustained in a behind closed doors game with Macclesfield Town.

Boss Tony Mowbray revealed the midfielder, who missed much of last season with injury, was emotional after being forced off just 33 minutes in to the 3-1 win at Brockhall on Wednesday morning.

Davenport didn’t travel to Mansfield for the scheduled pre-season friendly, with Mowbray keen to give the 20-year-old as many minutes as possible having not made his senior debut until the final game of last season because of injury.

An arrival from Manchester City last summer, Davenport suffered two long-term injuries to his hip and groin, but was hoping to put all that behind him after a promising display against Swansea City in May.

But Rovers will now wait to learn the results from a scan before knowing how long his latest injury could sideline him for.

“I spoke to him on the phone on the way (to Mansfield),” Mowbray told the Lancashire Telegraph.

“He’s having a scan. I feel devastated for him, he was very upset.

“He was quite emotional.

“It was strange that I had a long chat with him in my office. He wanted to know why he wasn’t coming to Mansfield and playing in the morning against Macclesfield.

“I was talking to him about becoming more robust. He played 60 minutes for the first-team last season and I want him to play as many minutes as possible.

“I felt Mansfield was going to be a much more physical game than Macclesfield. I think Mansfield will be pushing towards the top end of the league and with no disrespect to Macclesfield, while they will hope to, they struggled at the other end of the table.

“I thought Jacob should play 90 minutes but he didn’t manage to do that, he got injured again.

“It’s really frustrating for him. Let’s see what the scan says and we will take it from there.”

Davenport was replaced by Tom White, a new signing from Gateshead, having started in a midfield which included Charlie Adam and Jacob Butterfield who are both training with the club.

Adam scored twice in a 3-1 win, which saw Joe Nuttall score a fine solo goal as Sam Gallagher, Ryan Nyambe and Harry Chapman were all given a run-out.
