Central defender Mirfin has been sidelined since the beginning of November with knee ligament damage and midfielder Walker has missed the last five games due to an ankle injury.

Laws' squad has struggled with illness over the Christmas period, but winger Mark Duffy shook off a knee injury to last the full 90 minutes in the New Year's Day draw with Oldham and is expected to continue.

On-loan striker Nathan Ellington appeared for the final 20 minutes at Sheffield United on Boxing Day and against Oldham following a calf injury and is hoping to play a bigger role as the Iron chase their first win at Glanford Park since September 22.
