The Iron return to League One action with an away clash at Sunderland on Sunday (3pm kick-off).
They will be seeking to build on a start to the league season which has seen the team pick up four points out of six.
The Black Cats have the same return too, and come into the game following a Carabao Cup defeat against Championship side Sheffield Wednesday on Thursday night.
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson came off with a dead leg during the midweek Carabao Cup clash against Doncaster Rovers, and will be assessed on Saturday before a decision is made on his fitness prior to the Sunderland game.
Goalkeeper Matt Gilks (knee) is a long-term absentee and will continue to miss out, while Funso Ojo is also still not quite ready for a return to action.

ONE TO WATCH...
Scoring in the opening two games of the season, Josh Maja is one the Iron defence need to keep an eye on.
The 19-year-old found the back of the net against Charlton and Luton to take his Sunderland tally to three goals.
The striker joined the Black Cats in 2015 from Fulham and has played in 21 first-team games for the club.
