Scunthorpe come into this game on the back of an impressive 1-0 win against play-off rivals Charlton Athletic last weekend. That result saw United retain their place in the play-offs and put in an impressive performance to keep a clean sheet. They will be keen to use that victory to start a run of wins.

Walsall will be coming into this fixture off the back of a disappointing but thrilling game against fellow strugglers AFC Wimbledon. The Saddlers lost 3-2 thanks to a 96th minute penalty converted by Dean Parrett. Despite still being three points clear of the drop zone, Walsall will be desperate to add points to their tally.

TEAM NEWS…
There are no fresh injury concerns in the Iron camp.

Midfielder Luke Williams (hamstring) has been ruled out for the next two weeks at least after tweaking his hamstring again whilst training. Jonathon Margetts (knee) is the only long-term absentee.

ONE TO WATCH…
Erhun Oztumer has had another stand out season for the Saddlers, which has proved to be his most prolific in front of goal. The attacking midfielder is in his second campaign with Walsall and has already netted 16 times this season, which is once more than his record for the whole of last season. The Iron defence will have to be ready to cut out his passing game as well, as Oztumer has collected eight assists so far this season.
