Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins will have new signing Donal McDermott available for his side's home clash against Sheffield Wednesday.

The midfielder, who has signed on loan for the rest of the season from Premier League side Manchester City, trained with the Iron for the first time on Tuesday morning.

Otherwise, there are no fresh injury worries for Adkins' squad following Sunday's 4-2 FA Cup defeat to City.

Josh Wright, back on the bench against Roberto Mancini's men, could return to the starting line-up, but Michael O'Connor serves the final game of a two-match ban after reaching 10 bookings for the season and midfielder Andrew Wright is doubtful with the ankle injury that sidelined him at the weekend.

Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine has no fresh injury or suspension concerns.

The Owls have won their last three Championship outings and are unbeaten in their last four, with Irvine able to pick from the same squad of players that edged a 2-1 victory over Peterborough on Saturday.

Midfielder Tom Soares is waiting for Premier League clearance, but is expected to keep his place after extending his loan from Stoke, while defender Darren Purse is also in the frame despite missing training on Tuesday with an ankle knock.

Striker Francis Jeffers could return and is likely to take a place on the bench having resumed training following a hamstring strain, although fellow forward Jermaine Johnson is unavailable after being ruled out for six weeks with a similar injury.
