SCENE-SETTER

Scunthorpe come into the match on the back of a slender 2-1 defeat at high-flying Newport County, but will be looking to back up their 3-0 victory over Northampton Town last weekend, which saw Lee Novak (two) and Kevin van Veen on target.

The Grecians come into the fixture following a defeat of their own as they were on the wrong side of a 4-0 scoreline at Cambridge United at the weekend. It was Exeter's first loss on the road in the campaign and only their second league defeat. Currently in fourth, the away side could go top if a succession of results go their way.

TEAM NEWS

Manager Paul Hurst will welcome back Matthew Lund into the squad after he completed his three-match suspension following his sending off against Bradford City at the end of September.

Elsewhere, there's no fresh injury news, with the squad coming through the encounter at Rodney Parade at the weekend, with Kevin van Veen, Jamie Ward and James Perch all playing some part of the game after injury and illness, while Jacob Bedeau also returned to the bench following a calf injury.

However, Hurst confirmed Kgosi Ntlhe will continue to miss out with a groin issue.

Jordan Hallam (ankle) is close to a return and will feature for the Under-23s at Bottesford next Wednesday all being well, while John McAtee (shoulder) looks for a quicker return and also may play some part in that encounter.

George Miller (quad strain), and Andy Dales (calf) remain absent, while Jordan Clarke is out following an appendix operation, although the latter two were both back on grass running on Monday.

PAST MEETINGS

United gained promotion to League One the last time the two sides met, despite it being the end of a 28-game unbeaten run at St James Park.

The Grecians were the only side to complete a domestic double over the Iron back in 2013-14, with Scunthorpe failing to score in either fixture.
