No fresh injury concerns for Scunthorpe ahead of MK Dons visit

Scunthorpe boss Graham Alexander has no new injury concerns ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League One clash with MK Dons.

Defender Jordan Clarke is stepping up gym work as he recovers from an ankle injury, while long-term absentee Luke Williams is working with the club's physios as the pair close in on returns to training, although they still have some way to go.

Midfielder Josh Morris was a doubt for last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Northampton after undergoing treatment for a hamstring strain, but got through the 90 minutes and emerged unscathed.

The Iron currently sit a point clear at the top of the table, but could have been significantly better off having drawn each of their last three home league games, an issue they will be desperate to address this weekend.

The Dons have a handful of unnamed players who they are monitoring ahead of the trip north.

Manager Karl Robinson did not want to reveal the identity of those involved but he has some players nursing injuries while another missed training on Thursday through illness and will be assessed.

Chuks Aneke is getting closer to a return from his knee injury but the forward still remains unavailable.

Defender Scott Wootton is a long-term absentee with a serious knee problem after suffering injury against Barnet at the end of August.
