Derek Niven's suspension is big blow for Grimsby Town - Scott
ROB Scott admits Derek Niven's suspension is a real blow for the Mariners ahead of Saturday's clash with table-topping Newport County.
The combative midfielder picked up his fifth booking of the season in Tuesday night's victory over Gateshead.
And that triggers an instant one-game ban for the former Chesterfield man – who also notched his first Town goal in the clash with the Tynesiders.
Scott said: "Derek misses Saturday unfortunately, which is a bit frustrating because he gives us something in there that goes unseen at times.

"People are seeing now what he gives us, though.
"And I think he allows Craig Disley to get on the ball.
"Craig can only do that if Derek gives him the cover.
"He gets around the pitch, works hard and does the ugly side of the game.
"But we have got Frankie Artus, Andi Thanoj and Nathan Pond, who can also play centre-midfield, so we will have a look at it and see what the best option is for us."
