The on-loan Tottenham winger, signed on Thursday, will miss the trip to Scunthorpe as he recovers from an ankle problem picked up while playing for England Under-21s. He is likely to feature against Watford on Tuesday.

Striker Danny Haynes (groin and hamstring) and defender Lewin Nyatanga are close to making first-team returns but are lacking match sharpness and unlikely to make the clash at Glanford Park.

But, otherwise, manager Keith Millen has as close to a fully-fit squad as he has had all season.

Captain Louis Carey (heel) is likely to return to the centre of defence while midfielder Cole Skuse (knee) is back in the fold having missed the 2-0 defeat at Ipswich last time out.
