Scunthorpe caretaker boss Ian Baraclough may shuffle his pack for the date with high-flying Ipswich.

The Iron lost an entertaining Carling Cup encounter with Manchester United 5-2 in midweek and Baraclough has no new injury concerns.

Winger Garry Thompson remains sidelined with a groin injury and on-loan Brighton left-back Jim McNulty is also expected to miss out again with an ankle problem.

However, defender Rob Jones could earn a recall to the starting line-up after recovering from a knee injury and Bobby Grant and Michael Collins are also pushing for starting roles.

Striker Grant and midfielder Collins both came off the bench against Sir Alex Ferguson's side and Baraclough, set to be appointed as Nigel Adkins' permanent successor, will assess his options.

Ipswich boss Roy Keane is likely to revert back to the starting line-up that beat Cardiff 2-0 when they face Scunthorpe despite the arrival of Jake Livermore.

The 19-year-old has signed on loan until January from Tottenham but is likely to make his debut from the bench following the club's impressive form recently.

Martin Fulop will replace Brian Murphy between the sticks and Darren O'Dea and Tommy Smith are likely to come in for Damien Delaney and Mark Kennedy in defence following the Carling Cup win at Millwall.

In midfield, Luke Hyam and Jamie Peters are expected to be replaced by David Norris and Carlos Edwards while up front Jason Scotland and Connor Wickham should take over from Colin Healy and Tamas Priskin despite the Hungarian's goal.

Luciano Civelli will be absent again as he continues to recover from a serious knee injury.
