Stuart McCall’s side go into the game looking to bounce back following a 3-2 defeat away at Luton last weekend which marked the manager’s first defeat in charge of the Iron. 

Peterborough themselves will be searching for a response after falling to a 4-0 defeat against Barnsley last Saturday as they look to keep pace at the top of the table.  

TEAM NEWS...
United have no fresh injury worries for the visit of the Posh, though remain without George Thomas, who is on international duty with Wales.

Midfielder James Horsfield (groin) continues to sit out but will make a return to full training next week.

Elsewhere, on-loan striker Ike Ugbo (hamstring) should return from treatment at Chelsea next week and is likely to then be two weeks away from a return to action.

Long-term absentees Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (arm) continue to miss out.

PAST MEETINGS…

The Iron have a good recent record against the Posh and are unbeaten in their last five meetings against the team from Cambridgeshire. 

Last season, Scunthorpe were victorious at Glanford Park, winning 2-1. Lee Novak and Josh Morris were on the scoresheet for the Iron to turn the game on its head after Andrew Hughes fired Peterborough ahead. 

The reverse fixture between the two sides saw a 2-2 draw at London Road in which the home side take the lead twice before, Ivan Toney (now at Peterborough) and Ryan Yates pulled the score back level for the Iron to leave with a share of the points.

ONE TO WATCH…

Matt Gooden leads the line for the Posh and has netted seven times already in the league so far this season. 

Formely of Scunthorpe, the striker began his career at Glanford Park, signing a youth contract before putting pen to paper on professional deal in 2009. He played 18 times for the Iron, but during his time with the club had various loan spells with the likes of Gainsborough and Ebbsfleet before making a permanent switch to the latter non-league outfit in 2014. 

Godden fired in goals for fun at Ebbsfleet, netting 35 times, but then went on to make a real name for himself when he left the club to join Stevenage in 2016. There, he scored 30 times making 75 appearances in just two years. 

It was this kind of form that earnt him the switch to Peterborough this summer and he continues to be fine fettle for the Posh. He netted just one minute into his debut with his new club and has scored nine goals in all competitions.
