Loan defender Luke Waterfall says he would jump at the chance of staying with Mansfield Town.

Waterfall has played the last two games in the Stags defence after joining from Scunthorpe United in November.

And the Sheffield-born defender is now aiming to continue that run over the next three games and become an ever present until his loan deal runs out.

“I had to wait for my chance, but when a defence is doing ok then a manager will always want to keep stability,” he said.

“I have enjoyed it since I got in to the team and just want to continue that run.

“I want to play every game until my loan deal runs out and then we will take it from there.

“I’m not sure what is going to happen when my loan runs out. I have enjoyed my time at the club,they are a great set of lads and I would love to stay here if I am in the team.

“I have got three games to show what I can do and hopefully the manager will see enough and want to keep me.

“I’m not sure where I stand in the pecking order at Scunthorpe right now. If I go back I will have to sit down with the manager and discuss that.”

Waterfall, who had a goal chalked off for offside against Cambridge United , is urging his team-mates to put the defeat behind them as they prepare for the long trip to AFC Wimbledon.

“I did not think I was offside,” he said.“It is a shame that it did not count, if we had got the game in to extra-time I am confident we would have gone on to win the match.

“We weren’t that good in the first half and Adam Murray let us know at half-tme. We were better in the second half,

“It’s important we put things right on Saturday. It is vital that we start to pick up points, we need some quick points. The league is our priority now.

“It will be a tough game on Saturday, there are no easy games in this league whether you are playing Luton or someone at the bottom.”
