The Iron make the trip to Gillingham this Saturday looking to record a first win since mid-September.

Due to the international break, League One is the highest level of English football to have fixtures this weekend. The Gills are eighteenth in the table, five points ahead of Scunthorpe who remain 23rd.

This means that Gillingham are favourites for the tie at 21/20 while Scunthorpe go into the game as underdogs at 13/5. Football League sponsors Sky Bet offer odds of 12/5 for the match to finish level.

Four of the hosts’ last six home games have involved less than three goals yet this has not been the case in Scunthorpe’s previous six matches. At Sky Bet you can back there to be less than 2.5 goals at 4/5 while the bookmakers offer odds of 10/11 for there to be more than this.

You will receive even odds if you opt to back both teams not to score. Alternatively, if you bet on both teams to net you will get odds of 8/11 at Sky Bet.

The Iron are 12/1 to be victorious in both halves while Gillingham are 5/1. The Gills are 13/8 to be winning at the interval with Scunthorpe 3/1 to do the same.

Paddy Madden is most likely to break the deadlock for the Iron according to the bookmakers. They are offering him at 13/2 to be the first goal scorer, with Billy Kee second-favourite at 7/1.

Meanwhile, Cody McDonald and Danny Kedwell, both of whom have notched four goals so far this season, are the favourites for the home side at 9/2. 9/1 are the odds for the game to finish goalless.
