7 April 2018

Neither team have played since Good Friday as both had Easter Monday fixtures postponed due to waterlogged pitches. 

Therefore, Scunthorpe come into this game on the back of their televised 1-1 draw at Oxford United. The Iron looked impressive in the game but are on the hunt for a win that will put them back into the play-off places. 

AFC Wimbledon are coming into this fixture on the back of a 1-0 loss to Fleetwood Town and they have a lot to play for. The Wombles are sitting just one place above their rivals MK Dons in the relegation zone. 

TEAM NEWS…
There are no fresh injury concerns in the Iron camp. Right-back Marnick Vermijl (hamstring) and striker Lee Novak (heel) have taken part in training again this week after making their returns off the bench against Oxford. 

Midfielder Luke Williams (scar tissue injury) missed training on Thursday but only because of illness. 

Jonathon Margetts (knee) is the only long-term absentee. 

PAST MEETINGS...
The Iron and AFC Wimbledon drew 1-1 at Glanford Park earlier in the season, with Conor Townsend's spectacular opener cancelled out by Jimmy Abdou's effort midway through the second-half.

ONE TO WATCH…
Ex-Iron striker Lyle Taylor has steamed ahead as the Wombles’ top scorer this season, netting 15 times for the League One outfit.

The 28-year-old, who joined the Dons from Scunthorpe in 2015, is AFC Wimbledon’s record EFL goalscorer. However, the striker has also proven that he has an eye for a pass, having set up five goals for his teammates too.
