Scunthorpe vs Fleetwood
England League One
Date: Wednesday, 22 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Glanford Park (Scunthorpe).
Scunthorpe United are going to host Fleetwood Town in the 4th round of English League One on Wednesday evening.
Although they opened the season with a victory, the hosts managed to pick up only a point from the upcoming two matches. They are aiming for one of the spots in the top six and another chance to gain the promotion.
Last time they were unsuccessful after being defeated in the semi-finals by Rotherham United, who eventually won the spot in the Championship. Josh Morris and the lads have been pretty productive last season, whoever they need to improve their attacking work in the current one.
Fleetwood Town managed to secure a safe mid-table position last season as they finished seven points ahead of the relegation zone. Their goal remains the same, however they opened the current campaign by winning four points in three rounds.
The visitors managed to improve after an opening defeat and tie two matches without losing. Joey Barton’s side tightened up their defence and allowed only three goals so far. The visitors have been playing very well at away grounds last time as they managed to get back home with all three points from nine outings.
