Scunthorpe United Match Preview

16 March 2018

Marcus Braddock looks

After a weeks respite from the campaign, a trip to Lincolnshire to meet Scunthorpe is on the horizon this weekend. Unfortunately we find ourselves out of the automatic promotion places after Wigan's late winner at Bradford on Wednesday. It put them above us on goal difference but this weekend gives us the chance to climb back above Wigan as they face Southampton in the FA Cup on Sunday. Scunthorpe have had a bit of a lean spell since the turn of the year with just one win since they beat Bury on new years day. They've picked up points from a few draws and managed to stay in the top six but they need to arrest their slide as Peterborough and Plymouth loom with games in hand. Last weekends 3-3 draw at Wigan could be a sign that their form is about to improve and an indication that this weekend could be a difficult one.

Fourth official: Marc Edwards.

 

Team News

Scunthorpe: Lee Novak will still be unavailable because of a heel injury.

Town: James Bolton is still a little bit away from returning to full training.

Summary

This is another of those games that looks straightforward given the form but in reality is a very tricky fixture. Scunthorpe may have indifferent form but they have in form teams breathing down their neck, so I can see a good Scunthorpe performance, especially given their good result at Wigan. We could really do with extending our away run of four games, keeping the pressure on the teams above us is everything now and keeping the teams behind us where they are comes a close second.

COYB!!!

Ivan Toney broke down the left wing causing confusion for Dean Henderson and Aristote Nsiala, which lead to Nsiala fouling Toney and receiving a yellow card.  Josh Morris hit the free kick and it looped over Henderson giving The Iron the early lead.

Shortly after, Scunthorpe were pilling on more pressure, a chance fell for Duane Homes, but the Scunthorpe midfielder lashed the ball off the bar from inside the box.

Neither team were dominating play with 25 minutes left of the half. Both sides were battling hard for the ball in what was turning out to be a scrappy start to the game.

Town were awarded a corner in the 22nd minute, after Alex Rodman was driving into the box dangerously. Shaun Whalley delivered in a cross but Abu Ogogo couldn’t quite get the ball from under his feet and Scunthorpe cleared the ball.

Town had another chance five minutes later, Ben Godfrey hit a low driven cross but the ball fizzed just past the post.

Henderson made a great save in the 40th minute, denying the home side a two-goal advantage. Morris tried to curl a shot around Henderson but Towns keeper made himself big and saved the shot.

Scunthorpe were awarded a penalty shortly after. Carlton Morris was deemed to have brought down Toney. Henderson saved the penalty, which was stuck by Scunthorpe’s Morris. Keeping the deficit to just one goal.

Town went into the half time break a goal down, after a tough first half for the visitors.

Second half:

Six minutes into the second half, Jon Nolan scored the equaliser for Town. Nolan passed the ball into the box and found Morris who slipped the ball back into the midfielder who slotted the ball past Matt Gilks, bringing the score line level.

As town were growing into the game, The Shrews were awarded a penalty after Toney brought down Nolan in the box in the 59th minute. Payne thrashed the ball into the top left corner giving the Scunthorpe keeper no chance and Town the lead.

Scunthorpe captain Rory McArdle was given a yellow card for a late challenge on Omar Beckles, as the left back was making headway down the wing.

With 70 minutes on the clock, neither team could keep a possession of the ball and create any chances in the tough snowy conditions.

Town were awarded a free kick in the 82nd minute, the ball fell to Abu Ogogo from a Whalley delivery but he narrowly missed the target and struck the ball off the bar.

Town ground out the remaining 20 minutes by keeping possession and took home all three points. The second half lacked much goalmouth action but The Shrews came away with the win at a tough game away at Scunthorpe United.

Scunthorpe 1-2 Shrewsbury Town.
