David Noble: Faces a late test

David Noble: Faces a late test

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Cheltenham Town and Scunthorpe Untied at Whaddon Road.

Cheltenham will check on David Noble ahead of the visit of in-form Scunthorpe.

The Rotherham loanee made his first start of 2014 on Saturday as the Robins lost a 4-3 thriller against AFC Wimbledon and manager Mark Yates revealed that the 32-year-old was stiff and tired after his exertions.

And Yates' medical staff will assess whether Noble, who was sidelined for all of January and February with a hamstring tendon injury, is ready for two starts in four days as Cheltenham look to stop Scunthorpe's lengthy unbeaten run.

The likes of Jamie Cureton and Mitch Brundle will come into contention if Yates decides to make any more changes.

Scunthorpe manager Russ Wilcox is expected to select his side to face Cheltenham from an unchanged squad.

The Iron climbed into second place in the table following Saturday's win against Burton and after extending their unbeaten run to 22 matches, Wilcox is unlikely to make too many changes.

Teenage winger Hakeeb Adelakun and striker Paul Hayes were early second-half substitutes at the weekend and after helping to turn the game in Scunthorpe's favour will be pushing for recalls.

Veteran forward Deon Burton remains sidelined with the knee injury which has kept him out since late January.
