Team news: Scunthorpe United (A)

22 August 2018

Joey Barton has named his side to face Scunthorpe United in a Sky Bet League One clash at Glanford Park.

Barton has made two changes to the team, having been held to a frustrating draw against Rochdale at Highbury on Saturday.

Kyle Dempsey and Gethin Jones give way for James Husband and Wes Burns in the starting 11. Husband makes his debut for Town after signing from Norwich City on a loan deal until January. 

Forward Paddy Madden starts for the Cod Army against his former club, where he became a fan-favourite during a four-year spell. Madden scored 60 goals for the Irons, becoming the clubs 10th all-time top goal scorer.

The Fleetwood line-up is as follows: Cairns (GK), Coyle, Eastham, Morgan ©, Husband, Holt, Marney, Burns, Madden, Hunter, Evans. 

Subs: P. Jones (GK), Spurr, McAleny, Grant, Long, Biggins, Sheron.
