Scunthorpe are facing a goalkeeping crisis after Sam Johnstone suffered a dislocated finger in training.

The 18-year-old, who is on loan from Manchester United, was signed as cover for first-choice keeper Josh Lillis, who is out with knee ligament damage.

Sam Slocombe, 23, could be called upon for Saturday's trip to MK Dons if Johnstone is unavailable.

Meanwhile, midfielder Damian Mozika will be monitored after picking up an unspecified injury.
