Thompson blow for Iron
Scunthorpe winger Garry Thompson has been ruled out for up to two months ahead of the Carling Cup second-round clash at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
The ex-Morecambe man is nursing a groin injury which forced him to miss Saturday's 2-0 defeat at QPR.
Boss Nigel Adkins said: "It looks like he's going to be out for minimum of six to eight weeks. That is a massive hammer blow for us."
In another setback, defender Jim McNulty faces three weeks on the sidelines after he hobbled off with an ankle injury in Saturday's reverse at Loftus Road.
Eddie Nolan will switch from right-back to left-back, with Cliff Byrne returning on the right-hand side of the defence.
David Mirfin (lower leg) and Rob Jones (sickness) missed the trip to QPR and are doubtful.
Sheffield Wednesday boss Alan Irvine is likely to make changes.
Tommy Miller is back in contention for the Owls after a return to training this week. The midfielder could start his first game of the season after recovering from a hamstring strain.
Clinton Morrison missed Saturday's league clash with Brighton with a slight groin strain but should be available.
However, fellow striker Neil Mellor will hope to retain his place in the starting XI after making his first league start at the weekend.
The on-loan Preston frontman was promoted from the bench after opening his account for the club in the 1-1 draw at Colchester.
Winger Jermaine Johnson is still ruled out with long-term knee ligament damage.
Iron inspired by hot Dagnall
Chris Dagnall's virtuoso performance helped Scunthorpe to a resounding 4-2 victory over 10-man Sheffield Wednesday at Glanford Park.
The former Rochdale striker put in a man-of-the-match performance on a crisp evening in North Lincolnshire, netting his first two goals for the club to continue Wednesday's winless run in Scunthorpe that stretches back to 1958.
Michael Collins' curling effort and Michael O'Connor's penalty, coupled with Dagnall's goals, secured the npower Championship side's passage into the Carling Cup third round for the second successive season.
Wednesday played the majority of the second half with 10 men after former Iron Richard Hinds was given his marching orders, with Marcus Tudgay and Neil Mellor scoring the visitors' consolation goals.
Scunthorpe headed into the clash nursing a couple of knocks meaning Collins and skipper Cliff Byrne came into the starting line-up, while the visitors made six changes to the side that defeated Brighton 1-0 at the weekend.
The Iron came out on top when the duo locked horns in a pre-season friendly under a month ago, but neither showed the skill or guile required to make a breakthrough in the opening exchanges.
The first half was a drab affair but burst into life on the stroke of half-time when Collins scored a splendid curling effort from 18 yards.
Scunthorpe continued in the same vein after the break and extended their advantage four minutes into the second half when Dagnall wriggled free just outside the area and unleashed a superb drive into the bottom corner.
The Iron pressed forward and soon had the chance to make it three when Hinds clattered Jonathan Forte in the six-yard box.
Referee Nigel Miller had no hesitation in awarding a penalty and sending off the ex-Iron defender, with O'Connor scoring the resulting spot-kick.
Tudgay gave the visitors a lifeline from the penalty spot, before Dagnall headed home Byrne's superb right-wing cross with eight minutes remaining.
Substitute Neil Mellor reduced the deficit a minute later but the Iron held strong to send home the 1,860 visiting fans disappointed.
