Matty Lund could return from suspension to reclaim his place in the squad as Scunthorpe host Exeter.
The Northern Irish midfielder picked up a three-match ban during the Iron’s 1-1 draw with Bradford last month.
Iron boss Paul Hurst could be without Kgosi Ntlhe, who is struggling with a groin issue.
Also doubtful are George Miller (quad), John McAtee (shoulder) and Andy Dales (calf).
Exeter boss Matt Taylor could see his squad boosted as they look to bounce back from a heavy 4-0 defeat at Cambridge.
Both Lee Holmes and Gary Warren are nearing recovery from injuries and could partake as they rejoin training.
Sidelined for the foreseeable future is Lewis Ward, who is recovering from a broken arm.
Forward Nicky Ajose has undergone knee surgery and is also unavailable.
