The Iron head into the game following the 1-1 draw at the Wham Stadium against Accrington Stanley at the weekend in what was McCall's first game in charge.

Wolves' second string last played in the Premier League 2 competition on Friday, running out 3-1 winners at Norwich City.

TEAM NEWS…

Iron manager Stuart McCall has confirmed he has up to four players missing from the encounter through knocks and injuries.

However, he expects the quartet, of whom he didn't totally rule out of the game, to be fit and available for Saturday.

Jak Alnwick and Ike Ugbo, who both signed on loan from Rangers and Chelsea respectively, made their debuts at the weekend, but only goalkeeper Alnwick is available for selection this evening. Ugbo is cuptied having featured for Chelsea's Under-21s in their opening group stage win over Swindon Town, in which the forward netted once.

Meanwhile, McCall confirmed Lee Novak (dead leg) and Ryan Colclough both picked up knocks at the weekend in his post-match press conference, although the latter is fine and in contention to start.

Only long-term absentees Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (broken arm) are confirmed to be missing from the squad through injury, while Leicester City loanee George Thomas is away on international duty with Wales' Under-21s.
