Lukaku set to face Irons

LukakuOn loan Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is set to return from an ankle injury for the visit of the Irons tomorrow!

However, Toffees captain Phil Jagielka is ruled out with a hamstring injury so John Stones is likely to deputise in defence.

Fellow centre-back Antolin Alcaraz is fit again and comes back into the squad after spending four weeks out but on-loan striker Lacina Traore (hamstring) is unavailable.

Provisional squad: Howard, Coleman, Distin, Stones, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, Mirallas, Barkley, Pienaar, Lukaku, Robles, Alcaraz, Garbutt, Hibbert, Naismith, Osman, McGeady, Deulofeu.
