Scunthorpe manager Ian Baraclough has no fresh injury worries ahead of the home match against Barnsley.
Defender Eddie Nolan did sustain a lower back problem in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Ipswich, but has taken a full part in training and should take his place in the starting XI.
Niall Canavan and Michael O'Connor are pushing for recalls after dropping to the bench against the Tractor Boys, while Garry Thompson remains sidelined with a groin injury and on-loan Brighton left-back Jim McNulty will miss out again due to an ankle complaint.
Baraclough will be hoping to secure his first win since being appointed permanent boss against the Tykes and his team should be confident following their creditable draw against Roy Keane's high-flying side last time out.
Jay McEveley is definitely out for Barnsley and Garry O'Connor faces a late fitness test, but Kieran Trippier is back in contention.
Former Blackburn defender McEveley was forced out of Saturday's defeat at Reading due to a bruised foot and striker O'Connor, on loan from Birmingham, has had an injection in a bid to shake off a groin strain.
Andy Gray is likely to return to the starting line-up alongside new loan signing Chris Wood if O'Connor fails to make it and Luke Potter is the logical replacement for McEveley. Trippier is fit again following a foot injury.
Manager Mark Robins must decide whether to retain Hugo Colace in midfield or recall Goran Lovre, while Nathan Doyle is hoping for a bigger role after stepping off the bench on Saturday.
Barnsley, looking to bounce back from a 3-0 defeat at 10-man Reading, have won only one of their last four matches.
