Scunthorpe skipper Paul Reid has only an outside chance of making his first appearance of the season.

Central defender Reid has been forced to sit out the Iron's first two games, which both ended in defeat to newly-promoted sides Crawley and Crewe, due to a broken hand.

Reid had a lightweight cast placed on his hand at the beginning of the week and has returned to training, but is not expected to be risked against Yeovil. Tom Newey is likely to resume alongside David Mirfin in his absence.

Winger Mark Duffy will return to contention following his one-match ban for two yellow cards at Crawley on the opening day and manager Alan Knill has no new injury or suspension worries.

Knill, who said the first 45 minutes against Crewe on Tuesday night was the best he had seen from his side since taking charge 16 months ago, is not expected to make changes.

Midfield pair Damien Mozika (ankle) and Michael Collins (Achilles) are not yet ready for first-team action.

Meanwhile, Yeovil boss Gary Johnson is sweating on the fitness of injured duo Rohan Ince and Gavin Williams.

Chelsea loanee Ince is still receiving treatment on the shin injury he suffered against Newport during pre-season.

Fellow midfielder Williams travelled for the midweek clash at Brentford but wasn't fit enough to be named amongst the substitutes.

Ince returned from his parent club earlier this week to resume training and faces a late fitness test whilst Williams will also be assessed.

Striker Gozie Ugwu also had to settle for a place on the bench in that fixture but is expected to return to the starting XI having regained fitness after a knock. Reuben Reid will partner James Hayter if Ugwu fails to recover in time.

'Costa Is A Bad Man. Suarez Is Not'

That's quite some claim. And yes, unfortunately we are still talking about this. We also have mails on Ronaldinho, possible replacements for Yaya Toure and more...

Hmmm. We're not sure about this argument - one Mailbox says Luis Suarez is easier to forgive because he is a little loco. We also have mails on Studge and more...
