Hooper told his club's official website "I'm desperate to play on Sunday, it's hard watching when you want to be out playing. We'll have to see how training goes on Saturday first though but I'd love to play.
"I might not get back in the side though because Garry Thompson has done so well (scoring three goals in the last two games while playing in Hooper's usual striking position).
"He missed a sitter for his hat-trick and I've given him some stick for that, but he's done really well alongside Paul Hayes"
Hooper is currently Scunthorpe's leading scorer on 12 goals.
