Venue: Glanford Park (Scunthorpe).
It is a six-pointer for promotion play-offs when Scunthorpe welcome Plymouth on Tuesday evening.
The home team is 6th on the standings with 70 points and the visitors are 2 points behind them. So, a win for Scunthorpe will confirm their place in the play-off while a win for Plymouth keep the visitors in the race needing a win on final match week.
Scunthorpe are coming on the back of some excellent form and their win at MK Dons on the weekend is the third on the bounce. They are unbeaten in the last 6 league games as well, however this came after a barren patch between January and March.
Plymouth are a team that hit top form in the second half of the season. Their start to the campaign was poor and they were near the foot of the table. But since December, they lost just 3 of their 24 league games. Yet, fatigue caught them lately as you can see they won 1 drew 2 and lost 1 of the last 4 matches.

Scunthorpe vs Plymouth: Prediction
This could be an intriguing contest with both teams in good form and the winner here gets the upper hand over the losing team in the promotion play-off race.
When it is true that Scunthorpe have the better head-to-head record in both home and away matches against Plymouth recently, but the visitors are one of the most consistent side in the league in the second half of the season. Their away form isn’t bad as in comparison to the host’s home form. So, expect a game with goals and the final result can go either ways.
