The Ox is relishing facing the former England World Cup striker.

"It's definitely exciting because he has obviously been one of England's best strikers in the last 10 or 15 years"" the Iron defender says.

"I think he'll probably be frustrated that he is not playing much any more but everyone knows what a good player he is so it will be a good test for me."
