Managing to muster a points tally of 15, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat down in 23rd and three points adrift of finding a route out of the drop zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 loss away at Dagenham & Redbridge, Scunthorpe have lost each of their last four National League contests by an aggregate score of 9-2. Given the recent gulf in class between Saturday’s opponents, we’re backing a home victory here that can be found at appealing odds.
