Iron sweating over Sam Mantom

Scunthorpe midfielder Sam Mantom is an injury doubt for the home game against Peterborough.

Mantom sustained a gashed nose during Saturday's defeat at Bolton and will be monitored by Graham Alexander.

The Iron boss has no other new injury or suspension problems and is otherwise expected to choose from an unchanged squad.

Forwards Kevin van Veen and Tom Hopper are pushing for recalls, while left-back Conor Townsend remains sidelined following groin surgery.

Teenage midfielder Martin Samuelsen goes straight into the Peterborough squad.

Samuelsen has rejoined Posh on loan from West Ham until the end of the season.

New striker Junior Morias, from St Albans, is also eligible to play at Glanford Park.

Meanwhile loanees George Moncur and Nathan Oduwa have returned to parent clubs Barnsley and Tottenham respectively.
