SCUNTHORPE look to keep their home form going when they host Newcastle in the Championship tonight (Friday) 7.30.
Wins over Plymouth and Eastbourne have put the Scorpions second in the early league table, and they will be at full strength for the visit of the Diamonds.
The visitors operate rider-replacement for injured No.1 Ben Barker.
Scorpions skipper Simon Lambert said: “I think some people wrote me off at the start of the season but I want more meetings now. We’re trying to get some of the boys going because when we all click then we’ll be dangerous in the Championship.”
SCUNTHORPE: Josh Auty, Simon Lambert, Theo Pijper, Tero Aarnio, Thomas Jorgensen, Josh Macdonald, Jordan Palin.
NEWCASTLE: Ben Barker r/r, Adam Roynon, Connor Mountain, Max Clegg, Matthew Wethers, James Wright, Joe Alcock, Archie Freeman (no.8).
