The Iron are back in home League Two action when they host Cambridge United this Tuesday (7.45pm kick-off).
Scunthorpe come into the match looking for back-to-back wins for the first time since early December having recorded their first clean sheet since New Year's Day in the 1-0 win over Cheltenham at the weekend.
The result kept the side in touching distance with Tuesday's opponents, with a win seeing the Iron leapfrog the Us by a point and going as high as 14th in the division.
Cambridge come into the game off the back of back-to-back wins, first ending Colchester's long unbeaten run before a narrow, hard-fought victory away at Newport on Saturday.
United will continue to be without on-loan defender Junior Brown, who will miss at least another week with a medial ligament injury.
Rory McArdle (hamstring) will also be assessed after missing the last seven matches through that injury and illness prior. He was set to feature in Monday's Under-23s game away at Hull, along with Yann Songo'o (knee), who played an hour in the corresponding fixture last week, but the postponement means they're still in need of match minutes.
Elsewhere, Jordan Clarke could return sooner than originally anticipated from a calf injury, as he was originally out until late April. Meanwhile, Kgosi Ntlhe faces a month out with an Achilles injury.
Jordan Hallam (hamstring) remains absent, though is nearing a return to contention, while Regan Slater (ankle) is likely to be out until the end of February at least.
Rory McArdle got a brace earlier in the season the last time the two sides met, but the Iron were forced to play with ten men for more than 70 minutes of the game following a straight red card for James Perch with the score still goalless. The hosts would go onto win 3-2.
The last time that the two sides met prior to that was back in November 2016 in the EFL Trophy. Both teams had already progressed out of the group stage following their first two games, with the encounter determining who would finish top and gain the second round home tie.
It was Scunthorpe who emerged victorious and topped the group with a perfect record, with goals from Luke Williams and Hakeeb Adelakun sealing the win.
The last league meeting at home came over 14 years ago, in April 2005, when the Iron gained all three points en route to promotion from League Two. The scoreline finished 4-0 at Glanford Park with goals from Richard Kell, Andy Crosby and a brace from Cleveland Taylor.
