The Iron return to action on Tuesday night with a home Checkatrade Trophy group stage clash against Lincoln City (7.45pm kick-off).
United have two points to their name already in Group H following the draw and then victory on penalties against Wolves Under-21s.
Lincoln were beaten by Mansfield Town and the League Two leaders will be looking to keep their chances of progression in this competition alive with a derby victory.
United will have the same squad available to them which was available for the away clash at Luton Town on Saturday, with the exception of George Thomas, who is away on international duty with Wales.
The Iron may hand opportunities to some of the players who have been on the bench in recent weeks.
James Horsfield (groin) continues to miss out, while Ike Ugbo has a hamstring injury and is also cup-tied having already played for Chelsea in the competition earlier this season.
Goalkeepers Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (arm) remain absent.
Our last competitive meeting against the Imps came in the 2006-07 season, when United were 4-3 winners in the League Cup first round. Steve Torpey, Dave Mulligan, Shane Paul and Ian Baraclough scored the goals.

ONE TO WATCH…
John Akinde, who has scored four league goals so far, joined Lincoln City two days before his 29th birthday, signing a three-year deal with the Imps.
Prior to his move to Sincil Bank, the striker had made a name for himself with Barnet, playing over 150 games in four years. During his time with the Bees, Akinde scored 87 league goals, including 31 in their 2014/15 Conference Premier winning season.
Akinde started his career with Gravesend & Northfleet, who became Ebbsfleet United in 2007. The striker experienced two loans early in his career, the first to Margate and the second to Whitstable Town.
In 2008, he signed for Bristol City, scoring on his debut in a 2-2 draw against Plymouth Argyle. Five loan spells followed for the forward to clubs such as Wycombe Wanderers, Brentford and Bristol Rovers.
Between 2011 and 2013, Akinde turned out for Crawley Town and Portsmouth, both on a permanent basis after leaving Bristol City.
However, after leaving Fratton Park in 2013 he started to get first team football on a more regular basis with Alfreton Town.
In April 2017, Akinde became Barnet’s highest-ever league goal scorer when he scored his 48th Football League goal in a 2-0 win over Hartlepool.
