United head to Mansfield Town on Tuesday night to play the third of three away games in the space of a week (7pm kick-off).
United are without a win in their last three away matches and will be seeking to bounce back from the 3-2 loss at promotion-chasing Forest Green Rovers at the weekend. After going 2-1 up and leading until the 72nd minute, there was big disappointment with the nature of the loss at the innocent New Lawn.
Scunthorpe's last win came on March 23rd when they defeated Bradford City 2-0, while the most recent on the road as the 1-0 success at Cambridge United at the start of March.
Jordan Clarke looks set to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury picked up at the weekend, which forced him to withdraw after 20 minutes.
Harrison McGahey returned to the starting XI at Forest Green Rovers but is likely to miss out with a quad issue.
Jacob Bedeau will miss the next two games due to concussion, while Jai Rowe will have a knee injury assessed ahead of the match.
Goalkeeper Mark Howard remains out with a thigh injury, but Ryan Loft could be set for a return after a groin problem, as could Manny Onariase after a hamstring issue.
Left-back Junior Brown is out with a hamstring injury that forced him off against Bradford City and attacker Jordan Hallam is out with the hamstring problem which he suffered against Oldham Athletic in March, while Olufela Olomola's season looks to be over after he suffered a medial ligament injury.
Striker Aaron Jarvis (hamstring) is set to miss the rest of the season, while midfielder George Hornshaw and goalkeeper Adam Kelsey are both expected to be out for the remainder of the campaign too following ankle surgery.
Nigel Clough's side are unbeaten in three games and won 1-0 at Stevenage last time out, though a goal from Ryan Sweeney.
They're seeking a first home victory since March 9th when they defeated Cheltenham Town 3-1.
Top scorer for them this term is Jordan Bowery, with 10 goals to his name, and he also leads their assists table with seven.
Defender Fared Rawson leads their appearances charts with 41, while former Iron man James Perch has made 28 in the league.
They're 18th in the division and victory could lift them to 17th, while a Scunthorpe win see them leapfrog the Stags and move up to 18th.
The two sides have met twice already this season, with Mansfield Town victorious at the Sands Venue Stadium on both occasions in the league and the Papa John's Trophy.
