Scunthorpe United vs Rotherham United
England – League One
Date: Saturday, 10 February 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Glanford Park (Scunthorpe).
A real buzz is expected in and around Glanford Park on Saturday afternoon when promotional candidates Scunthorpe United and Rotherham United are about to lock horns in one of the most appealing clashes of the Matchday in League One.
The Millers look determined to fight their way towards an instant comeback into the Championship football and they are on the best way to do so at the start of the year. Rotherham have climbed up to the fifth place in the League One standings after winning three on the bounce without conceding a single goal in the process. The direct promotion is beyond the reach as the second-placed Shrewsbury Town are 11 points away at the moment, but the playoffs push is more than a realistic option for the visitors from this perspective.
It will be very interesting to see how Paul Warne’s rock solid defensive line will cope with the in-from attack of Scunthorpe’s here. The Iron have bagged three goals to dispatch the out-of-form Fleetwood Town last time out as they’ve ended the streak of four straight games without a victory in League One. The head coach Graham Alexander, however, has massive woes regarding his side’s defensive performances since the Iron have been fairly easy to break down recently conceding five gaols in last two ties against Southend United and Fleetwood Town.
Scunthorpe vs Rotherham: Head-to-head
The head to head stats, however, fancy the hosts who are yet to suffer a defeat to Rotherham United at Glanford Park.
The Iron have won four and drawn two of six home meetings with the Millers.
Five of last six H2H matched have ended with less than three goals scored.
Scunthorpe vs Rotherham: Prediction
We believe the time has finally come for Rotherham United to end the horrendous trend in matches at Glanford Park.
The visitors are undefeated in last ten games thanks to their super stern defensive line and we believe this segment will make the difference for them on Saturday.
