Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Sands Venue Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Scunthorpe United and Sutton United, the two teams who shared the spoils with Walsall and Salford respectively in their last league fixtures. The Iron aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the League Two, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course.
Head coach Neil Cox should stick to the 3-5-2 formation, with Bunn and Green up front. The newcomers, on the other hand, were not in action in midweek, meaning that tired legs are unlikely to be a big problem for them. Sutton, though, are not regarded as good travelers, which is the main reason why home win should be considered. Both Boldewijn and Bennett are pushing for a start, speaking of the visiting team.
