Scunthorpe play waiting game with Harry Toffolo

Scunthorpe boss Graham Alexander hopes to have defender Harry Toffolo available as the Iron look to return to winning ways against Bury at Glanford Park.

Toffolo's loan deal from Norwich expired last week but Alexander hopes the two clubs can agree an extension in time for the 21-year-old to line up against the Shakers.

Conor Townsend and David Mirfin are both still ruled out for a number of weeks with groin and foot injuries respectively.

Alexander may be tempted to make further changes to his side following a three-game winless run which has seen them slip out of the automatic promotion places.

Bury will be without utility player Tom Soares.

The 30-year-old is banned for the next two matches after collecting his 10th booking of the season.

His absence could give manager Chris Brass a problem at right-back with Craig Jones having also been out injured.

Winger Jack Mackreth, who went straight into the side against Sheffield United on Monday, will not be available having already played in the competition for Macclesfield.
