SCENE-SETTER

The Iron's Under-23 side's most recent game was last Tuesday, when they defeated Walsall Reserves 4-1 in the Central League.

Jordan Hallam notched in the first-half, with John McAtee, Jack Lambert and George Hornshaw getting themselves on the scoresheet in the second period at Birkdale Park.

Hallam will miss the next week or two with a hamstring injury sustained late on in that game, while Adam Kelsey (finger) and Omar Sanyang (ankle) missed out last week.

Reon Potts played 45 minutes last week as he returned from an illness he suffered the previous week.

Elsewhere, United first team boss Paul Hurst may opt to give game time to players who have been on the fringes of the side in recent weeks.

The Under-18s are in action at Notts County in the FA Youth Cup first round on Tuesday evening so those players won't be available for selection.

LAST LINE-UP (v Walsall Reserves - 29.10.19)

IRON: Collins, Rowe, O’Malley, Hornshaw (Shrimpton, 86), Cummings (Barks, 86), Bedeau, Pugh (Lambert, 60), McAtee, Potts (Jessop, 45), Hallam (Wilson, 73), Butroid.
