Iron pair struggle to make opener
Published : 07 Aug 2009 09:34:00
Record signing Rob Jones could be denied his competitive debut by a groin injury suffered in Tuesday's friendly against Wolves, while David Mirfin is battling against an ankle injury he sustained during the club's pre-season tour. Captain Cliff Byrne is likely to deputise at the heart of defence, although it is unlikely he will be joined by Kenny Milne who is in the final stages of his recovery from a knee injury that has kept him out for a year. Other than Jones, Mirfin and Milne, Adkins has no fitness concerns as the Iron prepare for life back in the Championship. New signings Josh Wright, Michael O'Connor and Adam Boyes are all available for selection.
