United are 9/5 underdogs to take all three points away from the Stadium when they take on Crawley Town on Saturday afternoon.

Sky Bet, the sponsors of the Football League, have the home side as 6/4 favourites and a draw at 23/10.

The Red Devils are coming off the back of three successive League draws and a FA Cup first round defeat to fellow League One side Yeovil Town.

Mark Robins' Iron side are looking for a third successive away victory, following the 2-1 League win over Peterborough United and the 2-0 FA Cup success against Conference side Forest Green Rovers.

All three of Crawley’s last three games have finished with a 1-1 score line and you can get odds of 9/2 for the same result this Saturday.

The more optimistic Iron supporters can back an Iron victory with odds of 15/2 for a 1-0 win, 12/1 for a 2-0 win and 33/1 for a 3-0 win.

The last time the two sides met was in February 2013, when Jimmy Ryan and Niall Canavan scored in a 2-1 Iron win. A repeat score line is priced at 9/1 by Sky Bet.

Both teams to score is one of the most popular betting markets and you can get odds of 8/11 if you think both sides will find the back of the net or alternatively, if you think one side will keep a clean sheet, you can get odds of evens for one side not to score.

One man who will hope to stop Crawley keeping a clean sheet is Gary McSheffrey. He scored both goals in the win over Forest Green last time out and is a tempting 10/1 to be the first goal scorer at the weekend. He is also 25/1 to score two goals in the game and 125/1 to bag himself a hat trick.

Strikers Paddy Madden and Lyle Taylor will also be confident of finding the net, with the Irishman Madden 11/2 and 24 year old Taylor 7/1 to be the first goal scorer.

Sky Bet are also offering some match specials for this League One fixture. They are offering 15/2 for Scunthorpe to score in the first ten minutes and 15/2 again for Scunthorpe to score two or more goals in the first half of the match.

With Mark Robins and his side heading into the weekend on the back of two successive wins, both coming away from home, an away trip to Crawley, who sit five points above the Iron having played a game more, could be the setting for three points to take the Iron out of the relegation zone. Odds of 9/5 for Scunthorpe to come away from Crawley victorious might be a good place to put your money this weekend.
