Scunthorpe v Charlton preview
Last Updated: 01/10/18 5:40pm
On-loan Chelsea forward Ike Ugbo is a doubt for Scunthorpe's League One clash with Charlton after picking up a suspected hamstring injury.
Midfielder Matthew Lund will definitely miss Tuesday's encounter after picking up a one-match suspension for totting up five bookings. Jordan Clarke will be itching for a return to action, having remained an unused replacement in Saturday's goalless draw at Burton.
The defender was fit enough to make the substitutes' bench at the weekend, and could now come into the reckoning for a start having shaken off a hamstring injury.
Nottingham Forest loan forward Jamie Ward will face a late fitness test for Charlton, having missed Saturday's 2-2 draw at Luton due to a knock. Karlan Grant is another doubt for boss Lee Bowyer, with the forward having missed his first match of the season on Saturday owing to a dead leg.
Darren Pratley could come into the equation to start for Charlton, after the midfielder remained an unused replacement in the Luton draw. Krystian Bielik could miss out again as he continues to work back to fitness following a calf complaint.
Scunthorpe won both league matches against Charlton last season, their first ever league double over the Addicks.
Charlton have won just one of their 11 away league matches against Scunthorpe (D6 L4), winning 2-0 in February 1973.
Since conceding in each of their opening eight games of the current League One campaign (18 in total), Scunthorpe have kept back-to-back clean sheets in the competition.
Charlton striker Karlan Ahearne-Grant has been directly involved in seven goals in his last eight starts for the club in League One (five goals, two assists).
