The Iron return to League One action with a home clash against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

Ticket News

Under-12s go free against Shrewsbury

19 September 2018

Stuart McCall’s side enter the game buoyed by a 3-2 away victory at AFC Wimbledon last weekend, secured through goals from Josh Morris (2) and Ike Ugbo. It was our first league win since the opening day of the season at Coventry City.

Meanwhile, the Shrews picked up their first victory of the season, defeating Southend 2-0 at the New Meadow. Greg Docherty and Lee Angol scored the goals.

TEAM NEWS…

McCall says the Iron will wait on left-back Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, who has been tested by Manchester United’s medical staff this week after coming off with concussion during the first half of the victory at AFC Wimbledon. The mandatory 14 day rule for concussion no longer exists, with a series of assessments required now instead.

Rory McArdle has returned to training ahead of the fixture, after sitting out the last fortnight to allow the heel injury which has been troubling him since pre-season to heal.

The boss told the press there were concerns over the fitness of Ryan Colclough and Stephen Humphrys after both picked up knocks in training earlier in the week. Colclough returned to training on Thursday and it is hoped Humphrys will do so on Friday.

Jordan Clarke (hamstring) was set to return to full training on Friday, having trained lightly on Thursday, but Saturday's game may come too soon for him.

Clayton Lewis has suffered a groin strain and is out of contention for the next 7-10 days.

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

LAST TIME OUT…

United were beaten 2-1 by Shrewsbury at Glanford Park in March, with the Shrews in play-off contention along with the Iron then. Josh Morris had given his side the lead through a wind-assisted free-kick.

Here’s the full record:

ONE TO WATCH…

A goalscorer last week, Greg Docherty has netted twice in five 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.
