Match pack: Bristol Rovers (A)

4 Hours ago

The Iron will be looking to get back to winning ways when they travel to face Bristol Rovers on Saturday (3.00pm kick-off).

Scunthorpe have drawn their last two games 2-2 at Peterborough United and then at home to Northampton Town respectively, coming back from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits on both occasions.

TEAM NEWS…
Graham Alexander's gut instinct is that he will be without striker Ivan Toney for this weekend's encoutner at Bristol Rovers. The Newcastle United loanee was withdrawn on the hour in last week's home encounter with a groin problem, with the Iron boss not expecting him to be fit to travel to the Memorial Stadium.

Alexander also confirmed there is a little bit of illness within his squad ahead of the game but all affected players will be assessed ahead of trav

All available players have valuable minutes under their belt following a midweek reserve game at Glanford Park, with the likes of Lewis Butroid, Andrew Crofts and Luke Williams all featuring and coming through the encounter.

Elsewhere, Marnick Vermijl is making good progress in recovering from his hamstring injury, but will still miss out in this encounter, as will long-term absentees Jordan Clarke (hamstring), Jonathon Margetts (knee) and Kyle Wootton (hamstring).

PAST MEETINGS… 
The Iron beat Bristol Rovers 1-0 at home in the reverse fixture in dramatic circumstances, with Neal Bishop heading home four minutes into stoppage time at the end of the game.

It was an encounter United largely dominated, but failed to find the breakthrough until virtually the last kick of the game when a right-winged cross was converted by the 36-year-old.

The previous meeting at the Memorial Stadium almost a year to the day ended all square following a Tom Lockyer own goal.
