Iron’s late fitness test


JarvisClaretandHugh has just learned that Matt Jarvis faces a late fitness test ahead of tonight’s clash against Liverpool.

Jarvis was expected to return to the squad for the match against Hull and was disappointed to miss out.

But we have learned that it’s now all down to whether he can pass the careful eye of Sam Allardyce and the medics.

Although – as we revealed earlier – Allardyce claims to be ready to go with the squad which performed so well Monday, there will be room to include the winger should he be fit with the likelihood that Ricardo Vaz Te will make way.
