The Iron's Under-18s take on Chesterfield at home in the Youth Alliance League this Saturday (10.30am kick-off).
The game will be played at Appleby Frodingham's home ground at Brumby Hall, DN16 1AA, and we'll have live coverage on the Academy Twitter site, in addition to a report and reaction from the fixture.
Following postponements and the youth players being required for Under-23s games, the Iron have slipped away from league leaders Doncaster Rovers and now find themselves in third position with three games in hand.
They're currently ten points behind. Bradford are second on 25 points, the same as Scunthorpe, but have played two games more. A win for the Iron would keep the mathematical pressure on the top side, who face seventh-placed Notts County - the side United face next.
Tom Collins should return to the line-up after missing the last couple of games due to playing for the Under-23s - a knock on effect of Ian Lawlor's injury which has seen Adam Kelsey on the first team bench. Kelsey has returned to the Under-23s line-up, while Collins himself has struggled through injury also, so will be monitored. With first-year goalkeeper Ben Crosher still working his way back to fitness following a fractured wrist sustained in pre-season, Under-16s 'keeper Jake Balme has recently deputised.
Elsewhere, a number of Under-16s players filtered into the team last time out and are likely to be seen more frequently as the remainder of the season progresses, even if it is to supplement the substitutes' bench.
LAST LINE-UP: Balme, D Gallimore, Lobley, Franklin (Moore-Billam, 45), Barks, Young, Wilson (Farmer, 72), Silva, Wilkinson, Virgo, Chadli (Lewis, 82).
SUBS NOT USED: Collins, Jessop.
Doncaster Rovers v Notts County (11am)
Mansfield Town v Rotherham United (11am)
