Iron hopeful over trio

Last Updated: Fri, 15 Nov 2013 12:43

Scunthorpe trio Etienne Esajas, Eddie Nolan and Niall Canavan are all hoping to feature in the home game against Accrington.

Winger Esajas has shaken off a knock sustained in the FA Cup draw at Grimsby, while defenders Nolan (hamstring) and Canavan (ankle) have been sidelined for seven and two matches respectively.

Michael Collins made his first appearance since August last weekend following a long-term knee injury and came through unscathed, so could make his long-awaited league start.

But fellow midfielder Matt Sparrow's return to action following a hamstring injury was shortlived at Grimsby when he was withdrawn just five minutes after replacing Esajas and he is not expected to be involved.
