Support the Iron in round one of the Carabao Cup v Notts County

8 August 2017

It comes three days after a 1-1 draw against AFC Wimbledon at the weekend, with Conor Townsend netting the opener before Jimmy Abdou equalised for the Wombles in the second half.

TEAM NEWS...
In his pre-match interview, manager Alexander confirmed that midfielder Neal Bishop will not be available to face his former club after coming off with a dead leg on Saturday.

Elsewhere Lewis Butroid, who had picked up a knock two weeks ago, will continue to miss out despite resuming training on Monday.

Luke Williams (hamstring) will definitely miss out for the Iron, however the forward has returned to training and is progressing every day. 

Apart from those two, everyone else is fit and training to be in contention, with Alexander indicating he has already decided his starting line-up. 

PREVIOUS MEETINGS...
The Iron were victorious after extra time in this corresponding fixture last season at Glanford Park.

Kevin van Veen struck either side of the interval in the 30 minutes extra period to set up a round two tie against Reading.
