Match Preview

O'Connor boost for Baraclough Scunthorpe boss Ian Baraclough looks set to be boosted by the return of midfielder Michael O'Connor for the home clash with Leicester. The Northern Irishman has been sidelined since January with a knee problem but returned to training this week and may come into contention for a starting role. The Iron`s injury list is beginning to ease, with goalkeeper Joe Murphy (ankle), midfielder Garry Thompson (groin), and right-back Cliff Byrne (back) possibly their only absentees. Baraclough was left bitterly disappointed by his side`s display in the 2-1 defeat at Barnsley in midweek and could ring the changes for the visit of the Foxes. The Oakwell reverse left Baraclough`s men four points behind fourth-bottom Crystal Palace but with a game in hand on the Eagles. Jeffrey Bruma is battling to be fit for Leicester. The centre-half, on loan from Chelsea, was absent with a groin strain on Tuesday night as Norwich became the first side to beat the Foxes in a league game at the Walkers Stadium since Sven-Goran Eriksson took charge at the start of October. "We didn't think it was serious but he tried to train at the start of the week and he felt it," said Eriksson. "He has had a scan but, fingers crossed, he might be available for Scunthorpe." Eriksson would be tempted to recall Bruma if the Dutchman is fit and the manager may consider other changes to the starting line-up with a possible recall for winger Paul Gallagher, who scored the Foxes` second goal against Norwich deep into stoppage time. Fellow wideman Lloyd Dyer, defender Miguel Vitor and striker Martyn Waghorn are also available for recalls. Leicester`s play-off charge has hit the buffers recently after a four-game winless run, including three defeats.

Match Report

Vitor shines in Foxes win Leicester reignited their npower Championship play-off challenge as a brace from Portuguese defender Miguel Vitor helped Sven-Goran Eriksson's side to a deserved 3-0 victory at struggling Scunthorpe. The Foxes' hopes of a top-six finish had been hurt by a run of three defeats in four matches but they returned to winning ways in emphatic style thanks to goals from Vitor (31, 72) and Kyle Naughton (76). Scunthorpe are desperate for points at the other end of the table but, although Joe Garner came close to giving them an early lead, they were second best and remain four points from safety. It was the Foxes who settled the better on a poor pitch, with Paul Gallagher's early cross from the left hooked just over the crossbar by Darius Vassell. But Scunthorpe, who have revitalised their survival bid with three wins in the last month, possibly should have taken the lead after 12 minutes when Garner's header from a corner was cleared off the line by Richie Wellens. Scunthorpe goalkeeper Josh Lillis was called on to make a decent block when Naughton's long throw was allowed to travel all the way to Ayegbeni Yakubu four yards out, and in the 31st minute the Foxes deservedly took the lead. It all stemmed from a terrific 25-yard shot from Yuki Abe that thundered off the crossbar, with Michael Nelson doing well to head the rebound off the line under pressure from Yakubu. Sol Bamba's effort was then deflected behind for another corner, from which Leicester found the net. Gallagher's delivery was guided towards the back post by Ben Mee and defender Vitor stabbed in his second goal for the club. It looked set to be a dream start to the second half for Scunthorpe when referee Rob Shoebridge pointed to the penalty spot for a push by Naughton on Garner, but a glance towards his assistant revealed the striker had been flagged offside and the decision was reversed. Gallagher then tested Lillis with a curling free-kick, while a breakaway in the 59th minute should have resulted in a second goal for Leicester but leading scorer Andy King could not quite stretch far enough to turn Vassell's cross into an empty net. Having had a penalty taken away, the hosts saw a goal chalked off in the 67th minute, with Garner booked for handling the ball over the line. Scunthorpe's challenge was all-but ended in the 72nd minute, though, when a peach of a right-wing cross from Gallagher was headed in off the crossbar by Vitor. Four minutes later, Leicester had their third as a short free-kick from Gallagher caught out the home defence, allowing Naughton to curl in a precise shot.
