Grimsby will check on Luke Waterfall for the crunch League Two game with Walsall.
Waterfall has been suffering from illness and boss Paul Hurst will make a decision after Friday’s training session.
Joe Adams is on international duty with Wales Under-21s and plays on Friday night, so will be unavailable for the Mariners, who have a lengthy injury list.
Sam Habergham (thigh), Mattie Pollock (hernia), Sean Scannell (muscle) and Idris El Mizouni (hamstring) are among those out, while full-back Joe Bunney will not play again this season because of an unspecified medical issue.
Walsall are hoping Rory Holden can return.
The 23-year-old has not featured since December with a knee injury, but he is nearing a return and could travel to Blundell Park.
Hayden White is still suspended as he serves the second of a three-match ban.
Boss Brian Dutton has yet to win in 10 games since taking over, but says he does not fear for his job ahead of a crunch game at the bottom.
