United transfer target Tommy Rowe scored a goal in the 3-2 defeat against Aston Villa’s reserves on Monday evening in a feisty affair.
He impressed with a busy performance in Wolves’ midfield and could now come into the reckoning for next Tuesday’s home game with Bolton.
The current injury crisis at Molineux is likely to affect the Iron’s chances of signing Rowe permanently, with Kenny Jackett desperately trying to strengthen his squad before the end of the window.
Wolves’ latest casualties, David Edwards and new Polish signing Michal Zyro face up to two months on the sidelines.
Jackett told the Wolves Official website that there will be opportunities for fringe players to make a claim in the first team: “We have the academy and the under-21 system to supplement and make sure that when chances like this come you have players that can come through.
“There are many careers been made in situations like that.
“The club will look after the injured lads very well and then you have to think about the lads that are playing.
“There will be opportunities for other people – and opportunities that we want them to take”.
