Prutton poised for starting berth
Scunthorpe new boy David Prutton could be handed his first start for the club when they travel to Hartlepool on Saturday.
The man on loan from Sheffield Wednesday impressed when he came on as a second-half substitute against Norwich at Carrow Road on Tuesday.
Skipper Paul Reid is unlikely to make his return to first-team action as his recovery from a broken hand is taking him longer than he had hoped.
Manager Alan Knill will continue his pursuit of United's first points of the season without injured trio Callum Kennedy, Damien Mozika and Michael Collins.
Kennedy remains out with an injured toe, Mozika is suffering from an ankle injury and Collins misses out as he continues to recover from tendonitis.
