Jon Taylor is expected to be Shrewsbury's only injury concern.

The winger only returned to training at the end of this week following the knee injury which ruled him out of last Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Notts County.

And he will now face a late fitness test to determine whether he is included in Town's matchday 18 against the Iron.

Striker Tom Bradshaw has returned unscathed from international duty with Wales' Under-21 side.

On-loan centre-back Michael Hector, only worthy of a place on the bench last weekend having struggled with a knee problem, is also back in full training.

Manager Graham Turner has admitted one or two changes could be made for the clash, with Bradshaw and Hector both in contention for starts along with the likes of Asa Hall, Joe Jacobson, Aaron Wildig and Ryan Doble.

Scunthorpe skipper Paul Reid could make his first appearance of the season.

Central defender Reid has been sidelined after breaking a bone in his hand during the club's summer trip to Ireland but returned to full training this week and is expected to be included in the squad.

Manager Alan Knill must decide whether to name Reid in his starting line-up at the expense of Niall Canavan if he is passed fully-fit.

Knill could also be boosted by the return of another defender, summer signing Callum Kennedy, who has missed the last four games due to a toe injury.

Midfield pair Damien Mozika (ankle) and Michael Collins (tendonitis) remain sidelined but have returned to light training.

Recent loan signing Leon Clarke is hoping to make his first start. The Charlton striker scored on his debut last week just four minutes after stepping off the bench while fellow forward Karl Hawley, also signed last week, aims to make the starting line-up.
