Scunthorpe goalkeeper Josh Lillis has been ruled out for three months, meaning Iron boss Alan Knill will look to the loan market for a replacement.

Lillis, 24, damaged his knee ligaments while Colchester were scoring their equaliser in Saturday's 1-1 draw.

It leaves 23-year-old Sam Slocombe, who has never started a league game, as their only available goalkeeper.

The window for loan deals made by Football League clubs opened on Thursday morning.
