Centre-back Rob Jones is fit again after a knee injury but was forced to settle for a place on the bench at Swansea on Saturday and is likely to be named among the substitutes again.

That means Niall Canavan will keep his place at the heart of the Iron defence as the Championship outfit seek to bundle out Sir Alex Ferguson's side, who are the Carling Cup holders.

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.

Baraclough looks set to be named as Scunthorpe's permanent manager after being placed in caretaker charge following Nigel Adkins' move to Southampton.
