Leicester striker Martyn Waghorn has revealed his desperation to win a place in Sven-Goran Eriksson's first team.
Waghorn has been resigned to the bench for much of the campaign thanks to the useful form of Paul Gallagher, Darius Vassell and Yakubu, but could win his chance tomorrow afternoon in a struggling Foxes side.
"I am ready for a start, if the manager calls on me," he said.
"I have tried everything to get in and have been working hard. Hopefully, he (Sven) might make a change and a couple of goals on Saturday will help my cause.
"It is up to the manager what he wants to do but if this is a time to change it and shake things up then I am ready.
"I have been working hard, I feel good and I feel as fit as I have done all season."
The 21-year-old has not started for the Foxes since November, but is hoping that his useful scoring run against the Iron will put him in good stead for a starting berth at Glanford Park.
"Every time I have played against Scunthorpe I have scored a goal. It would be nice to keep that going.
"Last season's goal at Glanford Park was one of my favourites. I took it well and I was more than happy with that."
Waghorn has mainly been used off the substitutes bench so far this season, but with three Foxes defeats in their last four, the young striker could get his opportunity to impress Eriksson once again.
The former Sunderland man came off the bench to make an impact at QPR last weekend, but admitted his disappointment with himself for missing a key chance which could have taken all three points for an unfortunate City side.
"I have been getting 25-minute cameos and while it has been frustrating, it is better than what I had been getting,' he said.
"I have to take the positives from it.
"I like to think that I have been doing OK when I have come on. I don't want to do anything wrong because I only have a short time to impress. I try to get the basics right and if I can get a goal then great."
