The Iron head into the fixture on the back of collecting four points from a possible six in their opening two league games, including a 1-1 draw against Walsall at the weekend.

Meanwhile, Rovers have taken maximum points from their two league games. They beat Southend United 3-2 at Roots Hall on the opening day before following that up with a 3-0 home success against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

TEAM NEWS...

Iron manager Nick Daws may look to give some players some game time as they recover from injuries for the Carabao Cup encounter.

Both Josh Morris and Rory McArdle returned to the squad at the weekend following their absences through injury and suspension respectively. Morris came off the bench to play just over ten minutes against the Saddlers. Club captain McArdle was an unused substitute.

Elsewhere, Levi Sutton is fit and available following a dead leg and Funso Ojo continues to be monitored, but is likely to continue to miss out. Matt Gilks, though, remains absent with a long-term knee injury.

Ryan Colclough came into the squad after signing on transfer deadline day and was a used substitute at the weekend, so is also in contention for the encounter.

PAST MEETINGS...

Alfie Beestin scored a late equaliser deep into stoppage time on Rovers' last visit to Glanford Park after Tom Hopper had put the Iron into a very early lead.

The two sides met on four occasions in 2017-18, twice in the league, once in the Checkatrade Trophy and once in the FA Cup.

ONE TO WATCH...

New signing Mallik Wilks has made a strong start to the campaign with Rovers with two goals from his opening two games.

On loan from Leeds United, the forward has previously been out on loan at Accrington Stanley and Grimsby Town, but looks set to be a strong addition on his third move away from Elland Road.
