We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of Tuesday’s Carabao Cup First Round tie at Holker Street (7.45pm kick-off).

Mark Cooper will assess the fitness of Matt Platt after the central defender was forced off at half time on the opening day at Stevenage with the recurrence of a back problem.

Summer signing Offrande Zanzala is closing in on a return to action following a hamstring problem but the Bluebirds boss must decide whether Tuesday’s game will come too soon for the striker.

Tom Beadling (knee) and Mike Jones (Achilles) are both definitely sidelined, while James Jones is still working on a return to action following injury.

Scunthorpe boss Neil Cox has a double injury concern after two of his players were injured in their opening day defeat to Swindon Town at the weekend.

The Iron boss will have worries over keeper Tom Billson who was forced off at half time on Saturday, while striker Tyrone O’Neill was also withdrawn in the first half.
