Mackie has been ruled out of Argyle's last two games - both defeats - by flu but he is back to full fitness and not likely to be leaving Home Park any time soon according to Mariner.

He said: "Nobody has been in contact with the club or with me. Jamie's a Plymouth Argyle player and, as buoyant as he is, he's looking forward to playing on Saturday.

"He hates not playing and the illness knocked him back a bit. He was very weak last weekend but he's raring to go on Saturday. He looks close to 100%."

Meanwhile Mariner has revealed he is hoping to sign an unnamed player on loan before Saturday's game against the Tykes.

He added: "We are in discussions with a team to get a player on loan but, as of yet, there are a lot of maybes but no confirmation."
