The hosts will be come into the game in higher spirits following a fine 2-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday evening. Greg Docherty and Fejiri Okenabirhie bagged a goal apiece in each half to help the Blues climb up to the 15th in the league ladder. We can say the interim manager Danny Coyne managed to turn a corner for Salop since taking over John Askey on the bench after a disappointing 1-1 draw to lower-tier Salford City in the first round of the FA Cup.

The Blues won four of five matches in all competitions under Coyne, a streak which includes a comfortable 1-3 victory over Salford in the first round replay at The Peninsula Stadium.

Shrewsbury vs Scunthorpe: Head-to-head

Scunthorpe have a positive head to head record in matches with Shrewsbury as they won 12 and lost 5 of 24 outings with Salop so far.

However, it’s the Blues who were more successful of late as they enjoyed a three-win thread in H2H games with the Iron before losing this term’s clash in September at Glanford Park.

Both teams scored just once in last six head to head games.

Shrewsbury vs Scunthorpe: Prediction

Doherty and Okenabirhie are enjoying a fantastic form coming into this one for Shrewsbury. This duo also inspired team’s 1-3 victory over Salford City and they are no doubts going to be the biggest danger to the Iron’s goal on Sunday.

The visitors are in a completely opposite rhythm. They lost three of past four matches in all competitions. They sit as low as 20th in League One after losing back-to-back fixtures to Portsmouth and Southend there.

The home win is thus well worth backing at the evens odds here.
