Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Scunthorpe United will be aiming to build on a 3-0 win over Grimsby Town when they take on Port Vale at Sands Venue Stadium. The Iron produced a thrilling display at the weekend, but they need to keep improving their game if they are to regain their spot in the top half of the table. Abobaker Eisa, who scored a brace in the triumph over Grimsby, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
The Valiants, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Walsall. Port Vale have already suffered six defeats on the road this season, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Scunthorpe’s party at Sands Venue Stadium. In the first half of the season the Iron defeated the Valiants 1-0 at Vale Park thanks to Eisa’s goal.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Clarke):
Jordan Clarke is a professional footballer who plays for League Two club Scunthorpe United. Born on November 19, 1991, Clarke is a product of the Coventry City football academy. He continued playing for the Sky Blues at senior level and after scoring 4 goals in 125 appearances for the club, he moved to Scunthorpe United in 2015.
It has to be noted that he had a short loan spell with Yeovil Town as well during the 2014/15 season. Jordan Clarke made his Scunthorpe debut in the League Two in a 2-0 loss to Swindon Town on August 3, 2019. Clarke’s main position is right-back, but he is used as both centre and left back as well.
Since he was a very talented player, Jordan Clarke earned call-ups for both England U19 and U20 teams. Speaking of his personal life, you should know that the Scunthorpe United defender attended Coundon Court School in Coundon, Coventry.
Highlighted Team (Port Vale):
Nicknamed the Valiants, Port Vale are a professional club that compete in the League Two. Port Vale welcome their rivals at Vale Park, and they wear white and black kit when playing in front of home fans. Yellow, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of their away kit.
The Valiants’ home ground, which was built in 1950, can hold up to 49,768 people. Championship side Stoke City are seen as one of the club’s fiercest rivals, but their rivalry is pretty healthy. The two teams first met on December 2, 1882, with the Potters emerging triumphant (1-0).
The Valiants maintain a rivalry with fellow League 2 club Crewe Alexandra as well. Speaking of the club’s titles, it has to be noted that Port Vale have won Football League Trophy on two occasions (1993, 2001). A 9-1 win over Chesterfield from September 24, 1932 is the club’s biggest triumph.
