Scunthorpe United vs Plymouth Argyle
England – League One
Date: Monday, 2 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Glanford Park (Scunthorpe).
Plymouth Argyle moved lock on points with Scunthorpe United in fifth position of the League One standings after a splendid display in a 4-0 thumping of Southend United on Friday. The Pilgrims will face a much more serious test just three days later when they will travel to Glanford Park to tackle the direct promotional rivals Scunthorpe United.
The hosts will come into the game in much lower spirits as they are still trying to find the way out of the crisis. The Iron are now winless in eight consecutive league games mainly because of the lack of the meticulousness at the back in their most recent set of fixtures. The trip to The Kassam Stadium has actually marked a debut for the new managed Nick Daws who took over Graham Alexander on the bench of the Iron.
The interim manager got off to a fine start when Ivan Toney confirmed his spell of excellent form by netting the third goal in last four league games. Nonetheless, the defensive line has once again str8ugglčed to keep things tight at the back allowing the U’s to bag the second-half equalizer and steal the point. At home, Scunthorpe United are winless in last seven matches conceding two or more goals in four of last five league outings at Glanford Park.
Scunthorpe vs Plymouth: Head-to-head
The Iron have indeed been dominant in the history of clashes with the Pilgrims in front of the home crowd (5 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss).
Scunthorpe United have won each of last four encounters with Plymouth Argyle.
This included a demolishing 0-4 victory for the Iron when the teams met in this term of the competition at Home Park.
Scunthorpe vs Plymouth: Prediction
The bookies see Scunthorpe United as favourites (because of the H2H stats) pricing them at 2.00 to garb the spoils, but we just can’t back a side that has been winless in eight consecutive games.
The value is definitely with the Pilgrims who are 1.85 not to lose at Glanford Park. We will alternatively back goals at both ends since both sides have a strong firepower on display in the final third.
