Loan duo out of cup clash
Newly-appointed Scunthorpe manager Brian Laws will be without two key loan players for the trip to Gillingham in the FA Cup on Saturday.
The tie will be Laws' first match back as Irons boss since he succeeded Alan Knill on Monday and he inherits a side searching for their first win in eight games. However they do so without top scorer Leon Clarke and David Prutton, who have been refused permission to play in the cup by their parent clubs, Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday respectively. Midfielder Damien Mozika will make the trip to Kent as he moves closer to a return from a long-term ankle knock. While winger Andy Barcham is also in contention after recovering from an injury that has kept him sidelined for the previous two matches.
