Football - Iron duo in fitness battle

Scunthorpe midfield pair Matt Sparrow and David Syers are hoping to shake off injuries in time to face York.

PA Sport Report

Sparrow missed the weekend win over Hartlepool due to an ankle problem sustained the previous week at Fleetwood but could return to the squad, while Syers picked up a knock late in the game on Saturday.

Striker Chris Iwelumo is expected to recover in time after turning his ankle against Hartlepool while midfielder Sean McAllister played the full 90 minutes at the weekend after overcoming a similar injury.

Midfielder Michael Collins is closing in on a return to action following knee ligament damage, defender Eddie Nolan (hamstring) and winger Andy Welsh (knee) remain sidelined.
