The bookies have odds of 4/1 for the game to be drawn and taken to Aggborough for a replay.

There are over 50 different betting options available on, including the Iron to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 at 100/30.

A 2-0 scoreline in favour of the home side is 6/1 and the game is 8/15 for there to be more than 2.5 goals in the fixture.

United are 10/11 to win with a one-goal handicap and a ‘Scunthorpe or draw’ double chance is 1/16.

The Claret and Blue are 100/30 to win by a two-goal margin and 11/8 to win with a clean sheet, or a victory with both teams scoring is 13/8.
