The Iron will be looking to make it two wins in a row when they host Rotherham United on Saturday.
Scunthorpe enter the clash buoyed by a 3-2 away win at Fleetwood Town last weekend and sit in fourth place in League One.
Meanwhile, the Millers defeated AFC Wimbledon 2-0 and sit fifth, four points behind Graham Alexander’s side.
Rory McArdle will be assessed after taking a gash to his eye in the win last weekend. He was set to be assessed in training on Thursday.
Cameron Burgess returns to contention after serving a one-match suspension last week.
Long-term absentees Kyle Wootton (hamstring), Jordan Clarke (hamstring) and Jonathon Margetts (knee) are still a while away from returning.
