Scunthorpe will be without suspended midfielders David Prutton and Josh Walker against Notts County in manager Brian Laws' first home league game in six years.
Prutton sits out the second game of a three-match ban following his recent dismissal at Walsall, while Walker misses out after reaching five yellow cards.
Laws, who recently returned for a third spell in charge at Glanford Park, is still without key defender David Mirfin due to knee ligament damage sustained in the recent FA Cup defeat at Gillingham. The centre-half is expected to be sidelined for up to eight weeks.
Midfielder Damien Mozika is pushing for his first start of the season following his long-term ankle injury and defender Christian Ribeiro is expected to shake off the groin injury that forced him out of last week's win at Coventry.
The Iron have won their last two league games since Laws' return and could climb out of the bottom four with a third straight success.
