Dawson missed the second half of yesterday's 3-1 win at York City with an ankle injury and is a serious doubt for Saturday's game.
Stanton picked up a knock at the weekend against Southend United, but managed a full 90 minute's yesterday and is likley to be fit for the weekend..
Despite doubts hanging over both his full backs Iron manager Brian Laws is a happy man, with United moving upto seventh following two consecutive away wins.
"Historically it is a poor time of the season for us, but we have thrown that out of the window now," he declared.
"We have set ourselves back in a great position again and the players are really, really bouyant.
"I can't wait for Saturday, we can start to think about it and talk about it now.
"The last few results mean we can go out against Leeds with a smile on our face, and if we can do that then we have half a chance."
