Murphy back for Norwich trip

01 April 2011 12:05
Goalkeeper Joe Murphy is back in contention for Scunthorpe's trip to Norwich, Alan Knill's first game as Iron manager. The Republic of Ireland international has not played since January, but made a return for the reserves in midweek. Josh Lillis has deputised ably during his absence, and will feel he merits keeping his place in the starting line-up. Despite the return of Murphy, the Iron are troubled by three fresh injury concerns. Striker Lee Miller and winger Mark Duffy have groin strains, while Marcus Williams has a back injury. Any hope Garry Thompson had of playing this season has also been ended after he underwent surgery on a groin problem. Norwich will be without striker Aaron Wilbrahim, who has a back injury. Midfielder Henri Lansbury, a familiar face to Iron fans, will return for the Canaries following a knock as will defender Zak Whitbread.
