Last time out, Graham Alexander’s side were beaten 2-1 by Wigan Athletic at Glanford Park. Midfielder Funso Ojo netted his first goal for the club in that defeat, but it was not enough to prevent his team from losing.

The Millers, on the other hand, won their match at Rochdale 1-0. A second-half winner from Richard Wood moved his side up to fourth position in League One.

TEAM NEWS…
Alexander confirmed in his pre-match interview that both Charlie Goode and Conor Townsend have returned to training, but he will wait until they are both fully fit before introducing them back into the matchday squad.

However, Tom Hopper, who went off with a knock last Saturday, is a doubt for the match, but Alexander is hopeful he could feature in the squad.

Long-term absentees Jonathon Margetts and Luke Williams will still be out injured.

Since signing last week, Clayton Lewis still needs time to be brought up to speed so he can play competitive games.

PAST MEETINGS…
The two sides last met in 2009 when the Iron won 1-0 in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy area final, booking their place in the final at Wembley. Striker Gary Hooper got the goal that day to go along with Martyn Woolford’s and Krystian Pearce’s strikes in the first leg.

The Iron last played Rotherham in the league during the 2006/07 season. They won 1-0 with Jermaine Beckford getting on the scoresheet.

ONE TO WATCH…
Kieffer Moore is certainly a player the Iron defence need to keep an eye on at the weekend. The striker, who is on loan from Ipswich Town, has already scored nine league goals this season.

His first set of goals for the Millers came against Southend United, scoring a hat-trick as they run out 5-0 winners in that game.

Moore had previously only played non-league before he signed for Ipswich in January 2017.

Report: Rotherham United 2-0 Iron

14 October 2017

The Iron were beaten 2-0 by Rotherham United in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

A tremendous first-half goal from Will Vaulks set the Millers on their way. Kieffer Moore doubled their lead in the second-half with a simple finish inside the area.

Manager Graham Alexander made four changes to his starting eleven from last weekend’s defeat against Wigan. Andrew Crofts was given his debut for the Iron, and Conor Townsend made his return to the side following his injury.

Inside the opening three minutes, Scunthorpe had their first opportunity of the game. Duane Holmes did well to win the ball and drove forward before passing to Paddy Madden on the right, however his strike was straight at Richard O’Donnell.

They were on defensive duty six minutes later. David Ball played a brilliant throughball into Moore, but captain Rory McArdle made an important tackle just as the striker was about to shoot.

Matt Gilks was then called into action in the 12th minute. The ball came out to Ryan Williams, flicking it up for himself, before striking a dipping volley towards the goal. The Iron’s shotstopper made a fine save to keep the scores level.

Moments later, the Iron defence managed to keep out a number of attempts from a Rotherham corner. Novak was back in his box to block the Millers’ best couple of chances.

Gilks made another great stop in the 18th minute. Anthony Forde cut onto his right foot and curled an effort to the far corner, but the ‘keeper parried it away from danger.

In the 25th minute, following his goal last weekend, Funso Ojo pulled the trigger again. However, his effort was deflected just wide of the right post.

Madden was presented with a great chance in the 33rd minute. Jordan Clarke curled a brilliant cross into the area for the Irish striker and his header was expertly stopped by O’Donnell from close range.

However, it was the home side who scored the game’s first goal in the 36th minute. The Millers played a corner short to Will Vaulks, who sent the ball into the top right corner in stunning fashion from 25-yards out, giving his side a 1-0 lead.

The Iron looked for a response just before half-time. Holmes adventured forward with the ball, laying it to Josh Morris in the box, but his left-footed strike was palmed away by the goalkeeper out for a corner.

After the break, it was Morris again to have the next chance. He chose to go alone and forced a smart save out of O’Donnell low to his left.

Seconds later, left-back Townsend struck the left post from range. He controlled the ball before curling an effort onto the woodwork with the goalkeeper getting the slightest of fingers on it. Madden tried to pounce on the rebound but he was flagged for offside by the assistant referee.

Not for the first time in the game, there was more heroic defending from McArdle. Moore headed down towards the goal, but the Iron defender managed to turn the ball over his own crossbar to prevent a second Rotherham goal.

The Millers again nearly got their second goal of the game when Williams charged forward and drilled a shot, but Gilks quickly reacted to push the ball over his crossbar with a diving stop.

In the 70th minute, Scunthorpe were on the attack. Townsend danced his way into the area with his strike being blocked, but the loose ball dropped for Holmes who controlled and struck a shot inches over the bar from outside of the box.

However, one minute later, the Millers went 2-0 up. Ball entered the box and he passed it across goal for Moore to have the easy job and tap it home.

Richie Towell was inches away from getting a third goal for his side. Murray Wallace headed out a Rotherham corner and, with a side-footed volley, Towell’s shot just went over.

In the 87th minute, Hakeeb Adelakun was played in on the left and his shot from a very tight angle was parried by the goalkeeper. Fellow substitute Sam Mantom couldn’t direct his headed rebound towards goal, with the ball going out for a goal kick.

That was the last big action of the game, with Rotherham the 2-0 winners.
