Byrne boost for Iron
Scunthorpe will have Cliff Byrne available for Monday's visit of Watford.
The Iron skipper was booked in the 3-0 defeat at Doncaster on Saturday, his fifth of the season.
But the defender will not face a suspension for the Hornets clash because FA rules state players picking up five cautions after December 31 will only receive a warning.
That reprieve could hand boss Ian Baraclough a massive boost as they look to pull out of the bottom three.
However, Michael Raynes (thigh), Niall Canavan (knee) and Jim McNulty (ankle) are all set to miss out.
United may tinker in the search of some much needed penetration and Baraclough is keen for a reponse, saying: "People seemed to go into their shells a little bit and that's something we need to improve."
Watford boss Malky Mackay is waiting on the fitness of captain John Eustace=.
The veteran midfielder has only missed two games in all competitions this season but is struggling to make the Iron clash after picking up a calf strain which forced him off after an hour of the 3-0 home win over Portsmouth.
If Eustace is passed fit Mackay is likely to name the same starting XI for the third match running.
Midfielder Stephen McGinn remains sidelined with the broken cheekbone and eye socket he sustained against QPR earlier this month and will be out for at least another four weeks.
Teenage midfielder Piero Mingoia is fit again after a thigh injury and could be among the substitutes but the game may come too soon for winger Michael Bryan as he continues his recovery from a niggling ankle injury.
Hornets survive cuts to claim Glanford gains
Repeated power failures threatened to curtail Scunthorpe's npower Championship clash with Watford, although the visitors managed to eke out a 2-1 victory at Glanford Park.
Substitute Matthew Whichelow secured the Hornets all three points with a 12-yard effort five minutes from time to stretch their unbeaten run to seven games.
The 19-year-old's winner came after an interrupted afternoon which saw power cuts threaten to put paid to the npower Championship clash.
Martyn Woolford had put the Iron ahead in the 60th after the first power failure, making amends for Michael O'Connor's missed penalty moments earlier.
Watford, though, did not buckle and equalised through Danny Graham before - following another two power cuts - securing victory through Whichelow.
Scunthorpe made two changes for the clash, bringing in Garry Thompson and Josh Wright in place of Michael Collins and Sam Togwell.
The Hornets, meanwhile, were without captain John Eustace through a calf injury sustained in Saturday's 3-0 drubbing of Portsmouth.
Ross Jenkins replaced the skipper in the starting XI, while Troy Deeney's recovery from an ankle strain secured him a place on the bench.
The game started at a high tempo as the home side slightly edged the opening proceedings, with Woolford looking particularly dangerous down the flanks.
Woolford produced the best chance of the early exchanges in the 10th minute, whipping in a left-wing cross that just evaded three United players in the box.
The Iron, though, continued undeterred and came close to breaking the deadlock in the 22nd minute when Michael O'Connor's drive was saved by Scott Loach.
Jordon Mutch almost netted for Watford shortly afterwards, before Scunthorpe returned to the attack with Chris Dagnall and Thompson both coming close.
The game changed in the 32nd minute after Jenkins lunged in two-footed on Eddie Nolan and was fortunate not to receive a card.
After a few heated moments, Watford seem to be galvanised while the home side wilted, with the visitors bringing on Deeney for Don Cowie in a bid to aid their ailing attack before the break.
The second half started in a slightly low-key fashion, before a power cut halted play at Glanford Park for the second time this season.
Much of the interior power and the floodlights went out in the 53rd minute, with play restarting more than 10 minutes later when the main fuse was replaced.
Scunthorpe began strongly after power was restored and were awarded a penalty after Andrew Wright was fouled in the box by Will Buckley.
O'Connor stepped up but saw his effort fly over the crossbar and into the visiting fans.
Woolford, though, atoned for his team-mate's error by finishing well after Dagnall unlocked the Watford defence.
Scunthorpe's joy was short-lived, as Graham equalised within minutes, before play was delayed again by two further power cuts.
Despite referee Andy Haines considering calling the game off, the fixture recommenced after a lengthy interruption and Whichelow secured an all-important victory for the high-flying visitors.
