Football - Barcham back for Blues battle

Scunthorpe winger Andy Barcham will return to contention for the visit of Carlisle, his side's third successive home match.

Barcham sustained a thigh injury in the recent victory over Portsmouth and missed the weekend win over Crawley, but has returned to full training and is hoping to make the starting line-up.

New signing Eddie Nolan, an unused substitute at the weekend after returning to Glanford Park on non-contract terms, could play some part against Carlisle, while centre-half David Mirfin is still pressing for a recall.

Manager Brian Laws, who has no new injury or suspension problems, must decide whether to recall fit-again midfielder Josh Walker (ankle) to the starting line-up.

Right-back Christian Ribeiro is back with the first-team squad after recovering from a hamstring injury and midfielder Damien Mozika is close to a return to full training following a similar problem.
