Football - Sodje set for start

Scunthorpe striker Akpo Sodje could return to the starting line-up at relegated Bury.

Sodje was named among the substitutes in the weekend draw with Walsall after shaking off an ankle injury, but stepped off the bench in the second half and manager Brian Laws hinted the 13-goal forward could be recalled.

But Laws is expected to be without Andy Barcham again after the winger missed out on Saturday due to a thigh strain.

Goalkeeper Sam Slocombe is pushing for his first start since the beginning of March after overcoming a thigh injury, but Norwegian Erik Johansen, on loan from Manchester City, is expected to continue.

The Iron, fourth from bottom, could climb out of the relegation zone with a first win in four matches if Oldham, one place and two points above them, lose at home to Yeovil.
