Scunthorpe United vs Crawley Town - Scunthorpe to face Crawley without injured Novak

Scunthorpe are set to be without Lee Novak for their League Two clash with Crawley.

The striker suffered an ankle injury during Tuesday’s Carabao Cup defeat to Derby and the club are still waiting for news on how long he will be sidelined for.

Manager Paul Hurst will be able to call on new signing Abo Eisa, who joined from Shrewsbury on Thursday, while Kyle Wootton is hoping to be available after missing the midweek game with concussion.

James Perch completes his three-match league ban while Jacob Bedeau (knee) and Clayton Lewis (thigh) are back in light training but remain unavailable, along with Kevin Van Veen (knee), Jordan Hallam, Andy Dales (both hamstring) and Levi Sutton (knee).

Crawley remain without Lewis Young, who serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

Manager Gabriele Cioffi has a welcome selection headache in attack.

He will check on Mason Bloomfield (ankle), who missed the Carabao Cup win at Walsall, but could choose to give Ashley Nadesan a league bow after his debut goal in midweek.

Cioffi made seven changes for Tuesday’s cup tie, with goalkeeper Glenn Morris, defender David Sesay and midfielder Nathan Ferguson among those pushing for recalls.
