21 April 2019

United will be hoping to return to winning ways when they visit Charlton Athletic on Easter Monday (3pm kick-off).

Ticket News

Pay on the day at Charlton

22 April 2019

The Iron head into the match on the back of a first clean sheet in 10 games when they drew 0-0 with Blackpool on Good Friday. Caretaker manager Andy Dawson will be hoping to build on that against the Addicks by clicking a win that could potentially take them up to 16th in the table.

Lee Bowyer’s team were beaten 2-1 at Oxford United on the same day and have already secured a play-off place, sitting fifth in the division.

TEAM NEWS...

Right-back Tony McMahon will miss out with a hamstring injury picked up at Shrewsbury a fortnight ago.

Matthew Lund and Jordan Clarke (both knee) are back on the training pitch as the medical staff continue to monitor them.

Elsewhere, Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season. Rory Watson (arm) is back on the training pitch too but is working towards a return at the start of pre-season in his recovery.

PAST MEETINGS...

The Iron have beaten Charlton on the last three occasions when the two sides have met, and have a good record against the Addicks over recent years, only losing two of the previous ten games in all competitions. 

The last time the two teams clashed was at Glanford Park back in October and they played out an entertaining game, as the Iron won 5-3. A Cameron Borthwick-Jackson brace and further goals from Charlie Goode, Josh Morris and Stephen Humphrys set Scunthorpe on their way to three points that day.

The last meeting at The Valley also saw the Iron come away with a victory, as an Ivan Toney goal in the 31st minute proved to be enough to separate the two sides in April last year. United will be hoping for a similar result again on Monday.

ONE TO WATCH...

Former Iron striker Lyle Taylor has been in terrific form for Charlton this season and has scored a total of 21 goals in all competitions and has also chipped in with eight assists.

The attacker is also in the race for the League One golden boot, currently sitting in fourth with 18 goals, as he chases down James Collins of Luton Town on 21 in the remaining few games of the campaign.

Taylor previously had a spell at Glanford Park back in 2014/15 when he joined the club from Sheffield United. The striker made 12 appearancs for the Iron and scored three goals, before moving on at the end of the season to link up with AFC Wimbledon. 

From there, he signed a contract with Charlton in the summer of 2018 and hasn't looked back since, making a name for himself as one of League One's most prolific strikers in Lee Bowyer's side. 

The striker will be sure to keep the Iron defence on their toes on Monday, as he will be keen to add to his goalscoring tally.

Match Reports

Report: Charlton Athletic 4-0 Iron

22 April 2019

The Iron suffered a 4-0 defeat at high-flying Charlton Athletic at The Valley on Easter Monday.

Anfernee Dijksteel scored his first goal in Charlton colours to open the scoring in the first half, before further strikes from Joe Aribo, Igor Vetokele and former Iron striker Lyle Taylor rounded off the scoring in the second period.

Caretaker manager Andy Dawson made five changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Blackpool at Glanford Park on Good Friday. 

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson made his first start since the end of January after recovering from a knee injury which kept him out for three months. He replaced Tom Pearce in the starting eleven. Elsewhere, Clayton Lewis started as he came into the team for Levi Sutton.

Josh Morris also started after returning from the bench on Friday following a broken leg. He replaced Jordan Hallam. George Thomas and Lee Novak also came into the starting line-up in place of duo Kevin van Veen and Kyle Wootton. 

Charlton, who had already secured a place in the play-offs before kick-off, came forward early on and had the game's first opportunity within five minutes. Albie Morgan found space on the left-hand side, before he drove into the area, however his final shot was fired into the side netting and didn't trouble Jak Alnwick.

Naby Sarr then tried his luck with a speculative shot from distance as he ran the ball out of defence, although his effort went high and wide of the target.

Rory McArdle then superbly denied Igor Vetokele, as he produced a fantastic slide tackle to block the shot and cleared for a corner, which the Iron then dealt with.   

However, on 24 minutes, the home side did manage to make a breakthrough. Anfernee Dijksteel netted for the hosts, as he latched onto a throughball inside the area. He controlled it well, before he drilled his effort into the bottom left corner.

The Iron looked to hit back quickly though. Funso Ojo was teed up by Josh Morris 25-yards out and as the Belgian shifted the ball onto his right-foot,  he looked to bend his effort back into the left post, although Dillon Phillips dived to his right and held onto the shot. 

With ten minutes to go before the end of the half, Ben Reeves hit a left-footed shot over the crossbar, before Adam Hammill dragged his effort wide of the post for the Iron, after Lee Novak's high pressure set up a chance for a quick counter attack.

On 43 minutes, Phillips made a fine save at his near post to stop the Iron from equalising. Hammill laid the ball off to George Thomas with a brilliant reverse pass, the attacker then struck his shot well, but was denied by the strong hands of the Charlton goalkeeper. 

Then, as the fourth official signalled for four additional minutes at the end of the first half, Dijksteel nearly added to his tally when his deep cross almost found the top left corner of the net, but Alnwick was alert and tipped the ball over the bar.

Deep into stopagge time, Ojo had another chance to level the scores for the Iron. Hammill had possession on the left flank and picked out Novak in the area. The striker then knocked the ball down to Ojo, who found space to run onto the ball, but somehow fired his right-footed shot wide.

As the teams emerged for the start of the second half, Charlton came out of the blocks in similar fashion to the first. Midfielder Josh Cullen had the first shot of the half from the edge of the area, but his curling effort missed the target. 

Morgan then saw his acrobatic kick run into the gloves of Alnwick, before the Iron then had a chance through Novak, who struck a low Morris cross just wide. 

United were still pushing for an equaliser and nearly found it when Hammill's dangerous ball almost found Novak, but the striker couldn't get a good connection and the ball fizzled out for a goal-kick.

However, as the Iron went in search of a goal, Charlton were able to hit them on the break and doubled their lead in the 57th minute from a corner when Joe Aribo headed past Alnwick to make it 2-0.

Former Iron striker Lyle Taylor then brought the ball under control in the area, before cutting back onto his left-foot, but as he tried to get his shot away, it was charged down well by a number of United shirts who surrounded him to clear the danger.

Just past the hour mark, Charlton made it three. Aribo, full of confidence from scoring moments before, slipped in Vetokele on the inside left of the area, who then poked the ball into the right corner of the net.

A few minutes later, Taylor did score against his former club with a well-struck free-kick that flew past Alnwick, leaving him with no chance.

With 20 minutes to play, Thomas had a great opportunity to pull a goal back for the Iron. Substitute Kevin van Veen delivered a deep cross to the back post from the left that picked out Thomas perfectly, but as he shot on the volley, his effort flew over the bar.

Matthew Lund was then sent on for the Iron for his first appearance since having a clear-up operation on his knee, as he replaced Clayton Lewis. 

Moments later, van Veen looked to cause problems again. He dribbled past two Charlton defenders, before striking the outside of the post with his shot.

As the clock ticked through the final ten minutes, Borthwick-Jackson struck a sweet shot from distance which forced Phillips into making a save, but he only parried as far as Novak. However, on the follow-up, he couldn't direct his header on target.

There were another four additional minutes at the end of normal time, but no other chances were created and the Iron fell to defeat at the Valley.
