Bishop has made only six starts and 13 sub appearances this season having missed virtually the whole of 2015/16 through a succession of injuries. The 20-year-old, who has recently been out of action with a groin problem, played the full 90 minutes today as Town’s U23s lost 1-0 to Sheffield Wednesday at Playford Road.

“He’s a been a big loss to the team because he’s a good player,” said McCarthy. “He keeps getting fit and breaking down again. I haven’t got a magic wand to get him on the pitch, I’m afraid. I’d like to think he be involved again soon.”

Regarding Benyu, who scored twice for National League promotion-chasing side Aldershot on Saturday, McCarthy said: “He’s going to be left there to continue doing well.”
