Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Cheltenham Town will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Southend when they take on Scunthorpe United at their Whaddon Road on Tuesday evening. The Robins quickly bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Grimsby Town, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Cheltenham aim to overtake Cambridge United in top position in the standings, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Scunthorpe United.
The Iron, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their last four games in all competitions. Scunthorpe experienced all sorts of problems in a 5-0 defeat to Cambridge United, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Myles Hippolyte is sidelined through suspension, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered this time out.
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).
