Wilcox hopeful over injured pair

Scunthorpe boss Russ Wilcox is hoping both David Mirfin and Terry Hawkridge will be available for the start of the season.

The duo missed the Iron's pre-season victory over Bottesford on Wednesday with respective knee problems.

Wilcox told the club's official website: "Mirfin has just got a little issue in his knee.

"He's going to see somebody on Friday and hopefully get that cleared up and see what the situation is, so fingers crossed it's nothing too serious.

"And then the other was Terry, he just opened his knee up a little bit in training on Wednesday and didn't make the second-half team.

"He warmed up, felt it again and did the right thing by dropping out.

"We've got three-and-a-half weeks left yet until the start of the season so fingers crossed we'll have those two back soon."
