Nolan was forced out of last week's draw at Burton and scans have since confirmed a torn hamstring, which will rule him out for at least six weeks. He joins fellow right-back Christian Ribeiro (groin) on the sidelines.
Cliff Byrne, on loan from Oldham, is expected to start in Nolan's absence, but skipper Michael Collins (knee), striker Matt Godden and winger Andy Welsh (both knee) are all unavailable as Scunthorpe bid to make it eight games unbeaten at Glanford Park.
On-loan Huddersfield striker Jimmy Spencer is pushing for his first league start for the club and Chris Iwelumo is hoping for a recall.
