Iron boss beset by injuries
Scunthorpe boss Ian Baraclough is again beset by injury problems as his struggling side prepare to host derby rivals Hull.
Centre-back David Mirfin is almost certain to play no part after pulling up with a thigh strain during training on Sunday, which forced him to miss Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough.
Mirfin's fellow centre-back Michael Raynes is struggling to recover from gastroenteritis and goalkeeper Joe Murphy is still troubled by an ankle problem.
Midfielder Abdisalam Ibrahim will also miss the match as he serves a one-match suspension but defender Michael Nelson should make his debut after arriving from Norwich earlier this week.
Midfielder Michael O`Connor and winger Garry Thompson remain long-term absentees as the Iron bid to claim only their second home win of the season.
Hull could be without defender Liam Rosenior and midfielder James Harper for the clash.
Rosenior was stretchered off in the midweek draw with Leeds following an aerial collision with Lloyd Sam.
The right-back sustained head and neck injuries in the collision and, although he has been given the all-clear by doctors, he may not be ready for Saturday.
Harper was replaced by Nick Barmby in the second half against Leeds due to the recurrence of a foot injury he initially sustained during pre-season and is also doubtful.
Defender Nolberto Solano could return following a thigh strain, but manager Nigel Pearson will still be without striker Caleb Folan (knee), goalkeeper Vito Mannone (groin) and winger Richard Garcia (knee).
Recent signing Tijani Belaid is pushing for a place in Pearson's starting line-up after making his debut as a second-half substitute on Tuesday night.
Tigers seal derby delight
Matty Fryatt fired a hat-trick and Aaron Mclean a double as Hull cruised to an impressive 5-1 Humber derby win over Scunthorpe to maintain their impressive away record in the npower Championship.
Fryatt, who has now scored six goals in seven appearances for the Tigers following his permanent switch from Leicester last month, gave the visitors a flying start with an opening goal in the fifth minute.
Mclean, who also joined Hull for an undisclosed fee last month, from Peterborough, tucked home his first for the club from close range early in the second half and from then on the result was not in doubt.
Scunthorpe's Joe Garner headed his first goal for the club following his recent arrival on loan from Nottingham Forest in the 55th minute, but Fryatt converted a 73rd-minute penalty and Mclean fired his second from Nick Barmby's assist in the 81st minute.
Fryatt lashed home his third following substitute Tijani Belaid's corner in the 89th minute to leave the Iron, without a win in any of their last 11 home league games, second from bottom in the table.
But while Scunthorpe's only win this season at Glanford Park came back in August, Hull stretched their unbeaten away run in the Championship to 10 matches and have lost only one of the 15 games since a 1-0 home defeat to their Humber rivals in November.
Fryatt struck his fourth goal in his seventh game for Hull following good work from Robert Koren on the left side of the penalty area, lashing home a low drive into the bottom corner.
Scunthorpe held their own in terms of possession but, save for Bobby Grant's sliced shot and Michael Nelson's header from Mark Duffy's corner, they failed to carve out a chance of any sort until Duffy's thumping volley was turned away by Hull goalkeeper Brad Guzan in the 31st minute.
Nelson volleyed just off target for Scunthorpe soon after and then Lee Miller mis-hit his shot inside the area following Eddie Nolan's free-kick as Hull defended their slender lead.
The visitors had soaked up everything Scunthorpe had to offer during the first half and then broke out to extend their lead five minutes into the second period.
Mclean reacted quickest when Nelson's error put Scunthorpe in trouble and broke his Tigers duck from six yards.
But the home side were thrown a lifeline in the 55th minute. Hull defender Paul McShane fouled Grant out wide on the left and from Duffy's free-kick Garner headed home his first goal in his second game for the Iron.
Mclean skewed a shot from the edge of the area wide and Koren was wayward with his 25-yard shot, while Duffy saw his effort from similar distance blocked by Hull defender James Chester at the other end.
Hull defender Andy Dawson secured his side a penalty in the 73rd minute when he was brought down by Grant in the penalty area and Fryatt stepped forward to fire his fifth goal in seven games for the Tigers from the spot.
Barmby, a second-half substitute for Tom Cairney, set up Mclean for Hull's fourth in the 81st minute, clipping the ball inside from the left edge of the area for the former Peterborough forward to arrow the ball into the bottom corner from 12 yards.
Michael Collins had a shot blocked as Scunthorpe refused to roll over, but Fryatt slammed home his hat-trick goal in the 89th minute following Belaid's corner.
