Midfielder Ollie Clarke (groin) will also continue to be assessed.

Midfielder George Lapslie was shown a straight red card in midweek at Forest Green Rovers. The club have appealed the decision in a bid to having the 24-year-old’s three-match ban lifted.

The Stags sit inside the play-offs in sixth position.

Scunthorpe are without a victory in their previous 10 Sky Bet League Two games.
