Today sees a clash that many thought could have been a title decider until a couple pf months ago as surprise promotion chasers Scunthorpe welcome Bolton Wanderers to Glanford Park.

Today theres one change for Bolton, with Conor Wilkinson oddly chosen to partner Adam Le Fondre in the injury-enforced absence of Gary Madine. The youngster has yet to convince any of us that he has what it takes, so this is yet another big opportunity for him.

The hosts appear to be playing a 4-4-2 with left winger Josh Morris likely to be their bkggest threat, along with on-loan Newcastle striker Ivan Toney and the lively Paddy Madden.

Here are today's starting lineups. Keep in touch with all the action from Glanford Park in the Comments sectiom below.

Scunthorpe United (4-4-2): Anyon; Wiseman, Wallace, Mirfin, Dawson; Crooks, Ness, Townsend, Morris; Toney, Madden.
