Graham Alexander’s side have won their last five league games, including an impressive 2-1 win over Bradford City on Tuesday night after falling behind first.

Similarly, the Addicks also came from behind to beat Rochdale 2-1 during the week.

TEAM NEWS…
Alexander will be assessing Lee Novak (ankle) ahead of the match, who went off injured versus Charlton Athletic, but won’t risk the striker if he's not right.

Elsewhere, Josh Morris (hamstring) will be training on the grass again. However, the winger is not expected to be in contention to be involved.

Striker Simon Church (hamstring) could train next week, but the Iron don’t want to rush him back too quickly.

Meanwhile, long-term absentees Sam Mantom (groin), Luke Williams (hamstring) and Jonathon Margetts (knee) will continue to miss out.

PAST MEETINGS…
The two sides last met in March at the Valley, where Scunthorpe were defeated 2-1.

In the same season, they played in the first round of the FA Cup, with Charlton winning 3-1.

ONE TO WATCH…
Ricky Holmes will be a tricky player for the Iron to deal with on Saturday.

The winger has five league goals and six assists to his name for this campaign and can take a deadly set-piece.

Before joining the London club, Holmes has played for Barnet, Portsmouth and Northampton in the EFL.

Report: Iron 2-0 Charlton Athletic

25 November 2017

A brace of Josh Morris wonder goals sealed a 2-0 win for United over Charlton Athletic on Saturday afternoon, making it six league wins in a row.

The half-time substitute, returning from a two week injury lay-off, made a big impact on the game – firstly curling home a free-kick on 60 minutes and then adding a spectacular second three minutes later.

The Iron made two changes from the side that won at Bradford City in midweek, as Clayton Lewis and Paddy Madden came in for Duane Holmes and Lee Novak.

The first chance of the game came the way of the visiting team on five minutes as Mark Marshall latched onto a left-wing cross with acrobatics, but sent his effort wide.

There was then good play from the Iron two minutes later as Madden controlled the ball for Hakeeb Adelakun. Madden was involved later on, hooking goalwards with Hopper beaten to the ball by Addicks showstopper Ben Amos.

Both teams tried to probe and the next chance arrived the visiting team’s way as Marshall broke down the left and drew a brilliant stop from Gilks as he spread himself. Funso Ojo then cleared for a corner from which nothing came.

Jordan Clarke, as he tracked back, went tumbling down as Charlton broke on that attack and limped off shortly after, replaced by Duane Holmes.

The Iron had a penalty shout denied on 20 minutes, as Hopper went down in the area, but the referee Kevin Johnson waved play on.

Soon after, United brought the ball forward, with Lewis' forward pass intercepted, but the ball spun to Adelakun, with his volley spinning goalwards and saved by Amos.

On 27 minutes, Gilks was called into action, as he saved superbly from a close range header by Josh Magennis. Somehow, he got a touch and pushed the ball onto the post.

He made another great stop a minute later, diving to his left to push Ricky Holmes’ long range drive around the post.

The 30th minute saw Scunthorpe have a great chance of their own, as Madden crossed from the right and Hopper stooped low to get on the end of it. Amos parried away for a great save.

From the subsequent corner, United came close again as Neal Bishop went near post to get a flick on the corner, but the ball landed at the feet of a Charlton player.

With 37 minutes on the clock, Holmes' cross was dealt with by the Charlton defence before Bishop regained possession and crossed for Madden. His header was saved by Amos.

United came close again when Adelakun threatened just before half-time and looked like he was being pulled back in the area, but nothing was given and the away side managed to get the ball clear.

At the other end, Gilks made a save which gives the Addicks a corner, with the following effort over the bar from Magennis. 

There was one Scunthorpe change at the break, as Morris came on for Lewis.

Alexander: It’s about the group and they have been superb

25 November 2017

The 47th minute saw a first second-half chance for the Iron as Morris played inside, with the cross searching for Holmes. He controlled before sending a low effort goalwards which Amos did well to save.

Two minutes later, there was a chance for Charlton’s Magennis, as he controlled with his back to goal before turning and firing a 20-yard effort wide of the post.

On 58 minutes, Adelakun sent in a free-kick, won by Morris, but as the ball dropped for Bishop to have an effort on goal, the referee blew for an infringement.

Scunthorpe took the lead on 60 minutes, as Morris curled the first of his goals into the goalkeeper’s top right-hand corner from 25 yards, and Glanford Park erupted in celebration.



Three minutes later, he added his second, and the fans celebrated even more in awe of what they’d just witnessed. This time with his weaker right foot, the Iron’s No 11 cut inside and curled the ball into Amos’ top left-hand corner from 25 yards, but a position that was slightly more central than that for his first goal.



In the 71st minute, Wallace overlapped Morris on the left and sent his cross goalwards, with Amos only just keeping the ball in front of the goal line as momentum took him backwards.

There was a quiet ending to the game and no more chances of note, as United defended resolutely and also pressured in an attacking sense, probing and trying to add to their score.

Scunthorpe are next in action on Sunday, 3rd December when they visit Doncaster Rovers in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup.
