The Iron will be back at Glanford Park when Southend United visit on Tuesday night (7.45pm kick-off) in Sky Bet League One.
On Saturday, Stuart McCall’s side were beaten 1-0 by Bristol Rovers, which was their first home defeat in six games and their first in 2019.
Jonson Clarke-Harris netted the winner for the visitors in the first-half, pushing the Iron down to 18th in the table after losing three of their last four fixtures.
Meanwhile, Southend haven’t won a match in nine games and are just three points above the relegation zone in 14th position.
They were denied three points in their last outing when Blackpool scored a stoppage time equaliser against the Blues. Rob Kiernan and Michael Turner got the goals for Chris Powell’s side.
United boss Stuart McCall has confirmed he will have the same squad at his disposal as the weekend, with all players coming through the encounter with Bristol Rovers unscathed.
Three changes were made going into the game with Tony McMahon returning after missing out against his parent club, with Adam Hammill and Kevin van Veen also coming into the side.
McCall will assess his options going into the tie with the Shrimpers and may opt to freshen things up following the clash three days ago.
Josh Morris and Jordan Clarke are back on the training pitch but will still be out of action for an unspecified length of time as the medical staff continue to monitor them.
Elsewhere, Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season. Rory Watson (arm) also looks likely to be out for the rest of the season following surgery last month.
Matthew Lund is out until April after a clean-up operation on a knee problem, while Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will be out for a few weeks with cartilage damage.
At Roots Hall earlier this season, the Iron lost 2-0 to Southend and were not helped in the first-half when James Perch was sent off for receiving two yellow cards.
Timothee Dieng and former Scunthorpe player Sam Mantom grabbed the goals for the Shrimpers in that match.
Overall, the two sides have met 56 times, with the Iron winning 24 of those, whilst Southend have won 17 games.
