Last time out, United drew 1-1 with Fleetwood Town, with the away side grabbing a late equaliser to cancel out Lee Novak’s earlier strike in the first-half.

Peterborough also drew their last match with the same scoreline. They were behind at Southend United before Jack Marriott scored a leveller ten minutes after half-time.

TEAM NEWS…
Andrew Crofts and Conor Townsend (both hamstrings) will again miss out, with manager Graham Alexander confirming that they are both yet to return to training. Townsend is expected to be out of action for a bit longer compared to his team-mate, being at least one week away.

The same applies for midfielder Sam Mantom (groin), who will not be involved again. He went to see a specialist during the week, with Alexander saying it went well. He is due to go back again for another scan to assess how long he will be out for.

Long-term absentees Luke Williams (hamstring) and Jonathon Margetts (knee) will still be out for a while. Levi Sutton has also picked up a thigh strain.

PAST MEETINGS…
The Iron last met Posh in the first game of this calendar year during last season at Glanford Park. That game finished 1-1 after Josh Morris had opened the scoring late on in the first 45 minutes. The away side got their equaliser in the 83rd minute courtesy of an own-goal by Charlie Goode.

In the same season, Scunthorpe defeated Peterborough 2-0 away from home. Kevin van Veen and Neal Bishop go the goals for the Iron that day.

ONE TO WATCH…
Joint-top scorer in League One, Jack Marriott has been excelling in front of goal for his side since signing from Luton Town in the summer.

The striker has scored ten league goals already, including six in four games during August and the equaliser on Tuesday evening against Southend.

Along with his time at Luton and his current employers, the 23-year-old came through the youth system at Ipswich Town, spending some of the time out on loan at clubs including Colchester, Carlisle and three separate spells with Woking.
