Mark Robins takes his Scunthorpe United to former side Barnsley as underdogs on Saturday.

Robins managed the Reds for just under two seasons, steering them clear of relegation from the Championship in his first term, and the Iron are valued at 3/1 for the win, according to the league’s official sponsor Sky Bet.

The Scunthorpe are looking to make it six matches unbeaten on the road and 13th-placed Barnsley are 17/20 for the win.

Robins’ men drew at Crawley last weekend, while Barnsley lost to Chesterfield, and a draw is 13/5.

There are over 50 different betting options available on, including the Iron to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 at 14/1.

The match is just 4/6 for both teams to score and a double chance of Scunthorpe or draw is ⅚.

United are 11/8 to be the last team to score and a 2-1 away win is 12/1. A repeat of last weekend’s 2-2 draw is also 12/1, while a 1-0 win is 11/1.

Last season’s top scorer Sam Winnall could play against the Iron for the first time since departing in the summer and he is 5/1 to score first and 11/8 anytime.

Current Claret and Blue top scorer Paddy Madden is 7/1 to net first and 12/5 anytime in 90 minutes, while Middlesbrough loan man Luke Williams is 11/4 to find the net anytime and Lyle Taylor, who scored against Crawley, is 8/1 to score the last goal of the game.

Elsewhere in the division, leaders Bristol City, who have lost their last two fixtures, travel to Peterborough on Friday. Bottom side Crewe host Doncaster, while Yeovil and Gillingham host Preston and Port Vale respectively.
