The Iron return to League One action with an away clash at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.
United enter the game buoyed by back-to-back festive period wins against Southend United and Blackpool.
The most recent of those wins came on Boxing Day and helped consolidate Scunthorpe in fourth position in League One. A victory at Ewood Park could see Graham Alexander's side climb up to second in the table.
Rovers made it three League One wins in a row on December 26th, by defeating Rochdale 2-0 at home.
Alexander reported no fresh injury worries when speaking to the press on Thursday.
Luke Williams was set to return to training on Thursday following a long-term hamstring injury but will be a few weeks away from a playing comeback yet such is the time he's been out injured.
Andrew Crofts will be out until mid-January with an ankle injury, while Sam Mantom has had a setback in his return from a groin injury and will be a few more weeks away yet - with Alexander hoping for the end of January depending on how the player's rehabilitation goes.
Rory McArdle (groin) is closest to a return out of the injured players, but will be a week or so a
Jordan Clarke (hamstring) and Jonathon Margetts (knee) remain long-term absentees.
Lee Novak was reintroduced back into the squad following injury during the win at Blackpool.
United lost 1-0 to Rovers at Glanford Park earlier this season, despite dominating the match.
