The Iron return to action with a trip to Blackpool this Tuesday, October 23rd (7.45pm kick-off).
United go into the match looking to bounce back from three successive league defeats against Luton Town, Peterborough United and Wycombe Wanderers respectively, while the Tangerines are unbeaten in ten league games and have only lost once in the division this season.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, manager Stuart McCall confirmed forward Lee Novak will continue to sit out with a calf problem that saw him miss Saturday's encounter at Wycombe.
Full-backs Jordan Clarke and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was fit to start at the weekend despite missing parts of last week with a virus.
Goalkeepers Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (arm) remain long-term absentees, while Matthew Lund (ankle ligaments) and Josh Morris (fractured jaw) are the latest additions to the injury list.
The Iron were 3-2 victors the last time they went to Bloomfield Road on Boxing Day in 2017. Tom Hopper and Duane Holmes put the side into an early 2-0 lead before Hakeeb Adelakun made it 3-1 in the second half. Scunthorpe then withstood late pressure to hold onto all three points and their first win at Blackpool in 17 years.

Our full record against Blackpool is as follows:
|SCUNTHORPE WINS||DRAWS||BLACKPOOL WINS|
ONE TO WATCH...
He may be a defender, but Curtis Tilt is in a rich vein of form after netting in his last two games.
Tilt is also part of a sturdy defence for the Tangerines and has been involved in seven clean sheets already this campaign, along with his three strikes.
The 27-year-old has only netted at home this campaign, but they've come in wins against Bradford City and AFC Wimbledon and a draw against Rochdale.
He is a product of non-league having come through Halesowen and Hednesford before moving to Telford and then Wrexham. He would have a loan spell at Forest Green Rovers before Blackpool signed him in June 2017.
So far in his Blackpool career he's netted four goals in 56 appearances, with three of those goals coming in the last seven games.
