Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Swindon Town will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Northampton Town and Grimsby Town when they face Scunthorpe United in a postponed fixture. The Robins are eager to secure automatic promotion to the League One, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season as both Crewe Alexandra and Exeter City are breathing down their neck.
Swindon Town will surely stick to their attacking style of play against Scunthorpe United, and seeing that they were not in action at the weekend, home win should be considered. The visitors have little to play for in the remainder of the season, which is yet another reason why we predict that the league leaders are going to pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football game. In the first half of the season Swindon Town defeated Scunthorpe United 2-0.
