The Iron will be hoping to record a first win in a month when Walsall visit the Sands Venue Stadium on Saturday (3pm kick-off), and do the double over their opponents for this season.
Following a trio of away losses, Neil Cox's side have four matches left for this season and will be looking to conclude the campaign in a positive manner.
Presently sitting 20th in the table, a victory over the Saddlers would see us climb a place to 19th.
Jordan Clarke looks set to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury picked up at Forest Green last weekend, which forced him to withdraw after 20 minutes.
Harrison McGahey returned to the starting XI at Forest Green and missed out at Mansfield through a quad issue, but has returned to training ahead of this weekend.
Jacob Bedeau missed Tuesday's match due to concussion and will be looked at prior to Saturday, while Jai Rowe will have a knee issue assessed ahead of the match.
Goalkeeper Mark Howard remains out with a thigh injury, while 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. Elsewhere, 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.
Walsall's last win came last Tuesday night when they defeated promotion-chasing Tranmere Rovers 1-0 at home through a Emmanuel Osadebe strike. That followed up a 2-1 victory over high-flying Forest Green Rovers the previous Saturday.
Since then, they lost 2-1 at Colchester United and then 2-0 at home to Salford City.
Elijah Adebayo was top scorer with ten goals before his move to Luton Town during the last transfer window. Caolan Lavery follows with seven to his name.
Liam Kinsella tops the appearances table with 39 league starts to his name, while former Iron loanee Frank Vincent has made three starts and five substitute appearances since signing on loan from Bournemouth in January.
United were 2-1 winners away at Walsall's Banks's Stadium on December 29th, with Myles Hippolyte and Alex Gilliead scoring the goals, while Mark Howard also saved a penalty.
We met the Saddlers twice last season, and lost on both occasions (2-0 on Boxing Day at the Sands Venue Stadium and 1-0 away).
