Football - Iron eye top spot

Scunthorpe boss Russ Wilcox could name an unchanged starting line-up at Hartlepool as his side bid to regain top spot.

PA Sport Report

Wilcox has no new injury or suspension worries following the goalless midweek draw against Fleetwood, which saw Chesterfield leapfrog them in the table.

Striker Deon Burton (calf) could be sidelined for up to six weeks after scans confirmed the full extent of the calf injury sustained at Dagenham last week.

Paul Hayes stepped in alongside Sam Winnall up front on Tuesday night, but recent signing Paddy Madden is pushing for his first start for the club following three substitute appearances. Andy Dawson (hip), Andy Welsh (knee) and Matt Godden (ankle) remain sidelined.
