Scunthorpe: Loanee keeper to start for Scunthorpe

The 20-year-old, signed on loan from Manchester City, has been drafted in as cover for Sam Slocombe, who has been ruled out for the rest of the month after aggravating a torn thigh muscle in last week's defeat at Brentford.
Skipper Paul Reid is expected to return to contention after missing the last three games through illness and Akpo Sodje will boost manager Brian Laws' options up front after being sidelined for two games due to a knock sustained in the recent defeat at Yeovil.

Midfielder Damien Mozika is another player hoping to be included in the squad after missing out since January due to a hamstring injury.
Defender Callum Kennedy (hamstring) and striker Robbie Gibbons (illness) are still out as the Iron, two points above the drop zone, chase a second win in five matches.
