Match Previews

Under-18s preview: Rotherham United (A)

7 May 2021

The Iron's Under-18s complete their 2020-21 season with an away fixture against their Rotherham United counterparts.

Please note, in line with the current EFL COVID-19 guidelines, no spectators are permitted at these games.

SCENE-SETTER

Having already secured their runners-up spot (for the second time this season) last weekend in the resounding win over Burton Albion, the side will be aiming to end the year on a high against a team who beat third-placed Grimsby Town last time out.

This is the side's final game of a four-game extension to the season, with the results from the Merit League being added to the existing standings. The top five are currently playing each other once more and the bottom five playing each other once more. The league split can be likened to the one in the Scottish Premier League, with the league effectively in two halves for the final few weeks of the season.

The Iron's goals last time out against the Brewers came courtesy of Oliver Lobley (two), Cameron Wilson (penalty) and Harrison Poulter.

Our opponents come into the game off the back of beating Grimsby Town 3-0 last time out.

The two sides have already met twice times this season. The Millers won the most recent fixture 1-0, but the Iron won their away fixture 4-1, with Joey Dawson scoring a hat-trick and Harry Lewis also scoring.

TEAM NEWS

Just Dan Gallimore and Cam Wilson remained out of the second year scholars in the latest line-up last week, with the duo both being offered their first professional contracts.

Harry Baker remains out with a knee injury, while it is expected the Iron will continue to go with their younger players coming through.

LAST TIME OUT (W4-1 v Burton Albion - Youth Alliance Merit League)

IRON: Balme, Moore, Pike, Franklin (Trialist A, 84), Lobley, Gallimore, Cribb, Moore-Billam, Lewis, Poulter, Wilson.

IRON UNUSED SUBS: Sellars-Fleming, Abraham, Strouther, Elliott-Bell.
