Knill hopeful on trio
Scunthorpe manager Alan Knill is hoping injured trio Damien Mozika, Jon Parkin and Conor McAleny will be fit for next weekend's clash at Huddersfield.
Midfielder Mozika has struggled with ankle problems this season and has missed the last two matches.
Striker Parkin, on loan from Cardiff, missed Saturday's home defeat to MK Dons with a slight hamstring tear and Everton winger McAleny, who has made three appearances since arriving on loan last month, has a knee injury.
"We're hopeful Parkin will be back with us next week and that McAleny and Mozika will be back as well because we're short on numbers," said Knill.
"It's just so frustrating really because we've had such a strong squad and then all of a sudden we have no players."
The Iron still require three more points from their remaining three matches to guarantee their safety.
