Swindon vs Scunthorpe Prediction
Swindon recorded a 3-1 win over Grimsby at home, the last match-day. It was in line with their objective to get directly promoted to the top division. So far, they have done justice to their dream, and it’s evident from their form, as well as current position in the league. In spite of having a game in hand, the squad is at the pinnacle of the table.
Elsewhere, Scunthrope were held to a 2-2 draw on the road, by Port Vale. The drawn match continued their recent trend of struggles on the road.
As of now, Scunthrope are placed in the bottom tier of the table, and are winless in their last five road games (of which three were losses). In overall fixtures, the team remained winless in 11 of their past 15 games, and conceded twice or more in eight of their preceding ten match-ups.
On the other hand, Swindon are eager to increase their lead at the top. They are at home this Tuesday, and are on an eight-match unbeaten run here (of which an impressive seven were wins). Keep note that they had also scored a total of 18 goals in their prior seven home fixtures.
Furthermore, the toppers had also won the reverse fixture, that too on the road with a clean sheet, and have lost at this venue just once against this opponent in the last 20 years.Taking into account these observations, it’s clear that hosts Swindon are overwhelming favorites this Tuesday.
