Pay on the turnstile at Walsall

8 December 2017

Despite being knocked out of the FA Cup and the Checkatrade Trophy in their last couple of games, Scunthorpe are still in fine form in the league, winning their last six games.

Walsall were also knocked out of the Checkatrade Trophy, losing to Bury 2-1, but they have picked up two victories in their last two league games.

TEAM NEWS…
Right-back Jordan Clarke will not be available for Graham Alexander. The manager confirmed that he will be out for a while with a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, midfielder Funso Ojo could return to the side after sitting out the last two matches, depending on how his training goes.

However, the long-term absentees (Sam Manton, Jonathon Margetts and Luke Williams) will again be missing, with Alexander hopeful that some of them could return early in the New Year.

PAST MEETINGS…
The two sides last met in February to play out a 0-0 draw at Glanford Park.

Although earlier in the season, the Iron defeated the Saddlers 4-1 away from home. Josh Morris netted a hat-trick in that game, with the other goal being scored by Neal Bishop.

Report: Walsall 1-0 Iron

9 December 2017

The Iron were beaten 1-0 at Walsall on Saturday afternoon.

Interviews

Alexander: We didn't find the required quality

9 December 2017

The home side got their goal inside the opening 15 minutes courtesy of a Kieron Morris effort.

Matt Gilks impressively saved an Erhun Oztumer penalty in the second half, but United couldn't get the goal despite pressing.

Manager Graham Alexander made one change from last weekend’s FA Cup match against Doncaster Rovers. Levi Sutton came into the side in place of Andrew Crofts.

In the opening seven minutes, Walsall’s Luke Leahy flashed a driven shot wide of the right post after he had found some space.

That was before the Iron tried an inventive corner-kick. Movement inside the box allowed Hakeeb Adelakun to float the set-piece to the edge of the box, but Josh Morris could not keep his volleyed effort down.

However, the home side took a 1-0 lead in the 13th minute. After the Saddlers kept the ball neatly on the left-flank, Morris received the ball and thundered a long-range effort into the back of the net. It looked as if the strike took a deflection, with Gilks rooted to his spot.

The hosts had another sighting of goal ten minutes later. Amadou Bakayoko was played through, however he dragged his shot wide of the target.

They again were looking dangerous in the 30th minute. Flo Cuvelier shifted the ball onto his left foot and curled his shot just over the crossbar from outside of the area.

As the Iron attempted to get back into the game, Adelakun tried an effort from 30-yards out. Duane Holmes had rolled the ball to him and Adelakun wrapped his foot around it, but it curled straight into Mark Gillespie’s arms.

Just before the break, Gilks made a great stop to deny Oztumer. The attacking midfielder drove forward with the ball, striking it towards the bottom right corner. However, the Iron goalkeeper parried it behind for a corner.

After the interval, it was Adelakun again who had another chance for United. Morris flicked it back to the winger, who drove a deflected shot over the bar.

At the other end, captain Rory McArdle made a super last-ditch tackle on Bakayoko, as the Walsall forward advanced on goal.

Again, Walsall looked to score from outside of the area. Oztumer took the ball forward, before he forced Gilks to make a low save to his left.

Moments later, Walsall won a penalty after McArdle fouled his man. However, Gilks was to the rescue as he guessed right and dived to his left to save Oztumer’s penalty-kick.

That penalty save sparked the Iron into life and Morris nearly found the corner of the net with a half-volley shortly after.

A good pass from substitute Kevin van Veen, allowed Murray Wallace to race onto the ball on the left side. The defender went to cross it, however his ball nearly snuck into the far corner of the net.

The Iron nearly found an equaliser in stoppage time. Clayton Lewis stung the hands of Gillespie with a powerful effort, with the ball going behind the goalkeeper, but he reacted quickly to push the ball away from the goaline.
