Double worry for Morecambe
Shaun Beeley and Jamie Devitt may be the latest Morecambe players added to their casualty list when in-form Scunthorpe visit the Globe Arena.
Full-back Beeley, only just back from a hamstring strain, has injured his ankle in training while on-loan midfielder Devitt is nursing a knee injury and has not been with the first team all week.
Midfielder Andy Fleming will sit out the second game of a three-match suspension he picked up when he was sent off against Mansfield.
Defender Tony Diagne and midfielder Ryan Williams are available again following a bout of illness, but midfielder Stewart Drummond (toe) may not play again this season.
Scunthorpe manager Russ Wilcox is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up as his side bid to extend their unbeaten record to 27 matches and stay top of the table.
Midfielder Sean McAllister (rib) and winger Gary McSheffrey (hamstring) have both missed the last two games and remain sidelined, while strikers Paul Hayes and Deon Burton are pushing for a place in the starting line-up.
The Iron have won four and drawn six of their last 10 matches.
