On-loan defender Brendan Moloney has returned to parent club Nottingham Forest for treatment after suffering a medial ligament injury in the midweek defeat at West Brom and he may not return as the prognosis is not good.
Cliff Byrne is likely to be suspended as he was sent off at the Hawthorns, though the Iron are appealing the decision and have yet to hear the outcome. If the appeal is not accepted then the right-back will serve a two-match ban.
Marcus Williams returns from a ban of his own, though, following his red card at the weekend and he should go straight back into the Adkins’ starting XI at left-back.
Forward Garry Thompson is still nursing a hamstring injury and will not be available as he faces another two weeks on the sidelines.
The Iron have lost their last two games and that has seen them drop right back into the relegation mix, sitting just a point and one place above the drop zone ahead of the Walkers Stadium clash.
