Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Scunthorpe will be looking to put an end to their six-game losing run in all competitions when they host Solihul Moors at their Sands Venue Stadium. The Iron are low on confidence ahead of their FA Cup opener, but they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Solihull Moors, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Maidenhead at the weekend, with the team extending their winless run on the road.
Considering that the National League side struggle on the travels, we are tempted to put our money on Scunthorpe, who are desperate to give fans something to cheer about. The two teams have never met before in the FA Cup. It is well known that Sunday’s football match will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread.
Highlighted Team (Scunthorpe):
Founded back in 1899, Scunthorpe United are a professional football club that compete in League Two. The Iron wear sky blue and claret jerseys and claret shorts when playing on home soil, while green is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Scunthorpe United welcome their rivals at the Sands Venue Stadium, which can hold up to 9,088 people. The Iron recorded their biggest triumph (8-1) against Luton Town on April 24, 1965, with the team repeating the success 30 years later when they hammered Torquey United 8-1 in the New Division 3. As for the club’s biggest loss, the Iron were crushed by Carlisle United 8-0 on November 25, 1952.
Grimsby Town are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals, but they maintain rivalries with local clubs Hull City, Doncaster Rovers, and Lincoln City as well. Jack Brownsword (1947-65) holds the record for most appearances in Scunthorpe United shirt (783).
