TEAM NEWS: CITY v SCUNTHORPE

18 January 2020

Debutant Luke McGee leads five changes Gary Bowyer has made to his starting 11 - ahead of this afternoon's visit of Scunthorpe United. 

The Portsmouth loanee starts in goal - following Richard O'Donnell's recent hamstring injury - with Paudie O'Connor returning in defence alongside Anthony O'Connor and Ben Richards-Everton. 

Kelvin Mellor and Hope Akpan also start, with Callum Cooke beginning in midfield, having missed last week's trip to Crawley Town through injury. 

There is a place on the bench for Jamie Devitt - who has been missing since the beginning of September with a knee injury.
