Andy Dawson's side go into the match this weekend coming off the back of a 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury Town at the New Meadow last time out, which gave the side their first point away from home since the end of January.

Kyle Wootton notched his fourth goal of the season with a header midway through the first half, but Shrewsbury hit back five minutes from time to secure a point through a cross that took an unfortunate deflection off Adam Hammill and went into the net.

The result means Scunthorpe are 18th but, such is the tightness of the bottom half of League One, they could climb a few places with victory on Saturday.

As for Burton Albion, they are unbeaten in their last four league matches and go into the game on sitting 10th and in good form following two impressive results against Barnsley (3-1 win) and Sunderland (1-1 draw).  


Dawson has confirmed right-back Tony McMahon will miss at least the next three games with a hamstring injury picked up at Shrewsbury last weekend.

Tom Pearce came off with a groin problem during the same game and will be assessed before the Brewers visit Glanford Park.

Meanwhile, Levi Sutton is back in training after missing out last weekend through illness, and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has returned to training following treatment on a hamstring injury at parent club Manchester United.

Josh Morris (fractured fibula and strained ankle ligaments), Matthew Lund and Jordan Clarke (both knee) are back on the training pitch but will still be out of action for an unspecified length of time as the medical staff continue to monitor them, though Dawson is hoping they will still have a part to play this season.

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.


There haven't been too many meetings between the two sides over the years, with just six matches taking place in all competitions.

However, the two teams have already met twice this season, once in the league at the Pirelli Stadium back in September and the other in the FA Cup first round at Glanford Park in November.

The Iron have a good record against the Brewers though, and have only lost one game in the six played, winning three and drawing two in the process.

It finished all square at the Pirelli, as the teams played out a 0-0 draw in the league earlier in the season, but the Iron won the FA Cup fixture, progressing to the second round with a 2-1 victory.

James Perch and Lee Novak both netted in the first half, before Liam Boyce scored late on to set up an exciting finish, but United held on for the win, and will be hoping to repeat that same success on Saturday. 
The record in full:

2018-19 - 10 Nov 2018 Iron 2-1 Burton (FACR1) Perch, Novak
2018-19 - 29 Sep 2018 Burton 0-0 Iron  
2016-17 - 9 Apr 2016 Iron 1-0 Burton Bishop
2015-16 - 8 Aug 2015  Burton 2-1 Iron  Goode 
2013-14 - 22 Mar 2014  Iron 1-0 Burton  Madden 
2013-14 - 28 Sep 2013  Burton 2-2 Iron  Canavan, Burton 


Versatile forward Lucas Akins has played in numerous positions for Burton over the years. 

However, the 30-year-old has found home leading the line this season, scoring 11 goals and creating seven assists in all competitions. 

The striker has notched four goals in his last five games in the league, in a run of form that has seen him pick up a nomination for player of the month for March.

Akins started his career in West Yorkshire with Huddersfield Town and progressed through the club's academy before making his first team debut in 2007.

Although, the following season, the forward was loaned to non-league side Northwich Victoria, where he spent three months before getting released by the Terriers in the summer of 2008.

Then, Akins went north of the border in search of first team football and joined Hamilton in the Scottish Premier League for two years. 

However, in 2010, the striker returned to England and signed a deal with Tranmere Rovers. It was here where he really started to gain attention, playing 77 times and scoring seven times, which caught the eye of Stevenage two seasons later. 

As a result, Akins made the switch to fellow League Two side Stevenage in 2012, where he went on to net 13 goals in over 70 games for the club.

In 2014, the forward joined Burton and has been a regular in the side ever since, appearing over 185 times so far and making a name for himself as the star man in Nigel Clough's team.

Match Reports

Report: Iron 0-3 Burton Albion

13 April 2019

Scunthorpe United succumbed to a 3-0 defeat against Burton Albion in Sky Bet League One.

Kieran Wallace netted, while Lucas Akins and Liam Boyce struck after the interval to round off the Brewers’ first victory against the Iron at Glanford Park.

The two sides cancelled one-another out in the early stages, until Akins tested Jak Alnwick in the Iron goal, from just yards out. Fortunately, the striker’s effort was straight down the ‘keeper’s throat as Alnwick gathered. 

The Iron had their first meaningful attempt on goal through Adam Hammill, who tried his luck from range, but Collins kept the midfielder out.

The hosts then had a free-kick wide on the left near the sideline. Hammill swung it in, and Webster rose highest in the box. However, there was a deflection on the header and it went out for a corner, which was then caught by Collins.

Marcus Harness took aim inside the area but it was comfortable for Alnwick once again, as the ball deflected back to the shot-stopper, with half-an-hour played.

With 18 minutes on the clock, it was now the Iron's turn to attack. Wootton broke forward and unleashed a shot from distance, but it was comfortable enough for Collins.

At the other end of the pitch, Funso Ojo’s centre found Jordan Hallam. The winger wonderfully brought the ball under his spell, but couldn’t get a shot away with yellow shirts bearing down on him.

Alnwick superbly tipped Boyce’s header over the bar from Jamie Allen’s out-swinging corner but he was beaten moments later from the successive set-piece.

With 39 minutes on the watch, Wallace nodded the Brewers ahead from the corner-kick, the ball kissing the upright on it’s way in, to make it 1-0 to the visitors.

Fine margins separated the two teams at half-time. The Iron made a change at the break in a bid to get back into the game, with Clayton Lewis replacing Harrison McGahey.

Straight after the break, Novak made a run in-behind the Burton backline and almost got on the end of a forward pass, but Collins charged out of his area to sweep up.

Early in the second period, Hammill looked to test the goalkeeper with a free-kick, but it took a deflection away and Novak looked to send in a cross but it went out of play.

In the 55th minute, Kyle Wootton did well to hold up possession on the edge of the area. He chested it down for Hammill, who took a first time shot, but Collins wasn’t troubled.

George Thomas was introduced 20 minutes later, with Jordan Hallam making way. The Iron used their last roll of the dice on Kevin van Veen, taking Kyle Wootton’s place leading the line.

Akins doubled Burton’s lead with 68 minutes on the watch, glancing Daniel’s cross from the left beyond Alnwick and into the back of the net.

Boyce added a third with 15 minutes left to play, picking up the ball out wide, and the cross-turned-shot rippled the top-hand corner for the goal of the game.

Rory McArdle had the ball in the back of the net for the Iron but the offside flag denied the skipper, who had latched onto a Hammill free-kick.

James Perch fired the ball over the crossbar, after a good passing move involving Novak and Lewis, heading into the final five minutes, but it would have been no more than a consolation for the Iron.

Scunthorpe United: 
Alnwick, Webster, Ojo, Perch, Novak, McArdle, McGahey (Lewis 45’), Wootton (van Veen 72’), Hallam (Thomas 65’), Butroid, Hammill.
