SCENE-SETTER

Scunthorpe go into the match on the back of a 2-0 away win at Forest Green Rovers last Saturday, which saw wingers Abo Eisa and Alex Gilliead score, while Jake Eastwood saved a penalty.

It made it three wins in a row in League Two and helped the team climb to 14th in the division. Victory over the U's could see Paul Hurst's side climb up to 11th in the division should other results go their way.

Colchester, managed by John McGreal, come into the match sitting eighth in the table, and on the back of a 1-0 home win over Salford City last weekend, which was secured through a late Harry Pell goal.

TEAM NEWS

Matthew Lund sits out the second game of a three match suspension following his red card against Port Vale.

Meanwhile, Levi Sutton is suspended for one game following his two yellow cards which resulted in a red at Forest Green.

Elsewhere, the only other absentees are Regan Slater (ankle) and Jordan Hallam (hamstring), although the latter has returned to light training this week.

LAST MEETINGS

Tom Hopper and Paddy Madden (two) scored the goals as the Iron defeated Colchester United 3-0 at home in January 2016 during our last match against them, which was in League One.
