Scunthorpe boss in upbeat mood
Scunthorpe United have the chance to climb off the foot of the Championship when they face travel-sick Coventry City on Saturday.
The Iron have battled hard all season after being promoted and remain firmly in touch with the teams above them.
Manager Nigel Adkins told a midweek fans' forum: 'We're looking forward to it.
'It's a massive game (against Coventry) and there's a quarter of the season still left to go.
'We are exactly where we thought we would be - in with a shout of staying in the Championship.
'And everybody has got to grab an oar and get behind each other. It's a great year, everybody has got to enjoy the whole season and we have still got a quarter of it left to go.'
Geoff Horsfield (hamstring) and midfielder Ian Morris are home doubts ahead of the game.
Morris has a bug which looks set to rule out Mamadou Seck but Jack Cork and Jim Goodwin look to jave recovered in time.
Midfielder Grant McCann is available after suspension.
