SCENE-SETTER

United haven't lost in the league since October 19th and will be looking to continue their climb up the League Two table, having climbed to 16th with a 2-1 home win over Port Vale in their last league encounter on November 23rd.

It will be the first match in all competitions since November 27th when United won 3-1 away at League One side Blackpool in the second round of the Leasing.com Trophy.

Our opponents sit second in the division, one point away from the top, and drew 0-0 at home to current top three rivals Crewe Alexandra in their last league game.

They drew 2-2 at home to Carlisle United in the Emirates FA Cup second round last weekend too.

TEAM NEWS

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

Elsewhere, the only other absentees are Regan Slater (ankle) and Jordan Hallam (hamstring). Click here to read Paul Hurst's update on them.

LAST MEETINGS

The two teams have only met once, with United running out 2-0 winners in the FA Cup first round in November 2004. Gary McSheffrey scored two goals as the Iron negotiated through a tricky tie at the then non-league outfit.
