Russ ponders changes

Scunthorpe could shuffle their pack when they host Oxford looking to extend their lead at the top of League Two.


A late equaliser from Morecambe on Good Friday left the Iron two points clear of the chasing pack and boss Russ Wilcox has no new injury worries as they look to move a step closer to playing League One football next season.


Dean Burton and Paul Hayes, both introduced as second-half substitutes, will hope to be given the nod from the start against the U's.


Midfielder Sean McAllister (rib) and winger Gary McSheffrey (hamstring) look set to miss out once more through injury.


Oxford also have no fresh injury worries as they look to bounce back from their Good Friday defeat to York.


The U's were without striker Deane Smalley as they lost 1-0 to the Minstermen and the former Oxford frontman looks set to miss out once more with a calf strain which has kept him out since April 5.


Head coach Gary Waddock, who says his side will be positive as they search for three points they need to keep their play-off dream alive, named an unchanged line-up for the first time in 24 games but he may tinker against the Iron.


Alfie Potter and David Connolly could both come into the starting XI for the U's.
