Match Preview

Paul's out of the Hunt

Yeovil will be without the suspended Paul Huntington for their npower League One clash with Scunthorpe.

Defender Huntington sits out the second match of a four-game ban, with new signing Richard Hinds set to make his home debut at the heart of the Glovers' defence in his place.

Midfielder Dominic Blizzard is available for selection once again after recovering from a groin injury, but manager Gary Johnson will not be able to call on full-back Ryan Dickson after he was recalled from his loan spell by parent club Southampton.

Yeovil recruited young midfielder Lawson D'Ath from Reading on Thursday and he is likely to go straight into Johnson's matchday squad, with Bristol City loanee Joe Edwards set to revert back into defence.

Scunthorpe's latest signings Jon Parkin, David Mirfin, Jamie Reckford and Robbie Gibbons are all hoping to make their debuts.

Manager Alan Knill could be further boosted by the return to contention of skipper Cliff Byrne (groin), striker Jordan Robertson (hip) and midfielder Jimmy Ryan (knee).

Midfielder Michael O'Connor is expected to shake off a groin injury in time to be included in the squad and defender Christian Ribeiro, on loan from Bristol City, is hoping to make his third appearance for the club following concussion.

Summer signing Damien Mozika is closing in on his comeback following a long-term ankle problem and continues to be monitored.

Midfielder Michael Collins (Achilles), plus strikers Connor Jennings (foot) and Matt Godden (hip) remain sidelined as the Iron chase only their second league win in their last 12 matches.
