United come into the game looking to bounce back from Tuesday’s 2-0 away loss at the hands of Southend United.

Meanwhile, the Shrews enter it following a 2-0 home victory over Plymouth Argyle.

Scunthorpe defeated Burton Albion 2-1 at Glanford Park in the first round of the competition, while this weekend’s opponents were 3-1 away winners in a replay at Salford City after drawing 1-1 in their initial tie.

TEAM NEWS…

James Perch misses out through a one-match suspension following his dismissal for two yellow cards against Southend United.

Manager Stuart McCall has revealed Funso Ojo and Lewis Butroid face three-to-four weeks out with hamstring injuries.

However, Andy Dales has shaken off a groin injury sustained in midweek and will be available.

United are waiting on Matthew Lund and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, who both missed the Southend match through foot injuries.

Elsewhere, Matt Gilks (knee), Rory Watson (arm), Levi Sutton (thigh) and Jordan Clarke (shoulder) continue to miss out, while Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season.

PREVIOUS MEETINGS…

The Iron defeated the Shrews 1-0 at Glanford Park back in September in League One through a winning goal from Lee Novak.

ONE TO WATCH…

A goalscorer in Tuesday’s win over Plymouth, Greg Docherty has netted six times in 20 starts since signing on a season-long loan from Scottish giants Rangers.

The young midfielder featured 14 times in the second-half of last season for the Ibrox-based side, but ‘Gers manager Steven Gerrard felt it was important to get him some game time south of the border.

Docherty joined Rangers in January 2018 from Hamilton Academical, where he had spent the previous 13 years, coming through the youth set-up, before playing over 100 games for the club.

A box-to-box midfielder, Docherty has been capped by Scotland Under-21s.
