Iron goalkeeper Sam Slocombe will make his first appearance in three months during today's reserve game against Rotherham.

The Iron enter today’s Final Third Development League fixture with eight trialists among their ranks.


Ryan Brobbel gets another chance for Scunthorpe following his performance against Mansfield last time out. He’s on trial from Middlesbrough.


The winger is best known from his loan spells at York City and Hartlepool United, the former of which he aided to the play-offs in 2013-14.


Jake Rose plays his third game on trial for the Iron in the middle of the park. He’s on trial from Premier League side Hull City.


Making another appearance for Scunthorpe’s reserve team is Scott Tancock. The Welsh U-21 international is on loan from Swansea.


He’s also had loan spells at Newport County and Wrexham in the last calendar year, representing his country six times.


The last returning player is midfielder Zac Thompson from Leeds United. He’s made nine appearances for them since turning professional in 2011.


Thompson has also enjoyed a loan spell at Bury in 2012-13, making 29 appearances, scoring one goal.


Of the trialists making their first appearance in claret and blue, Kieran Morris travels from Championship side Brentford for today’s game.


Also appearing is Jonathon Margetts from Hull City who netted a hat-trick against the Iron for the Tigers earlier in the campaign.


He’s recently been on loan at Cambridge United and has always looked lively when playing against Scunthorpe.


Northern Irish international defender Jamie Sendles-White starts in defence for United and is on trial from QPR.


He’s played 10 games in total for the under-19’s and under-21’s in Northern Ireland, with him also having loan spells at Colchester and Mansfield.


Striker Danny Barrow is the final trialist from West Bromwich Albion after he signed his first professional deal at the start of the season.


Meanwhile, making his return to playing action is goalkeeper Sam Slocombe, who starts between the sticks for Scunthorpe.


He had returned to full training after suffering a broken arm against Bristol City earlier in the year.


Elsewhere, the other players and the substitutes are youthful for the Iron, with Reece Mosanya and Levi Sutton making up the starting eleven.

Scunthorpe United:
Slocombe, Tancock, Mosanya, Thompson, Sendles-White, Morris, Brobbel, Rose, Margetts, Barrow, Sutton.
Substitutes: Dyche, Ledger, Cleminshaw, Baker, Shilling, Stockhill.
