United are 3/1 to come away from the Proact Stadium with three points when they travel to Chesterfield on Saturday.

We have loads of odds available on

Sky Bet, sponsors of the Football League, have the home side as favourites at 17/20 and a draw at 12/5.

The Iron have already faced Chesterfield this season, when Sean McAllister and Gary McSheffrey scored in a 2-0 Scunthorpe win in the first round of the Johnstones Paint Trophy.

In the League, Chesterfield have made a flying start to the season, continuing their form of last season when they won League Two. In their first five games the Spireites have won three, drawn one and lost one which sees them occupy the final playoff position in League One.

For a repeat result of the Johnstones Paint Trophy match, a 2-0 Scunthorpe win, Sky Bet are offering odds of 18/1.

The only game Chesterfield have lost in the League this season came at home to MK Dons in a 1-0 defeat. It is 9/1 for the Iron to replicate this scoreline and bounce back from defeat at Bristol City with a win.

Over half of Chesterfield’s games this season have seen both teams find the back of the net, whilst Scunthorpe have had exactly 50% of their League matches seeing both teams score. For both teams to score when the sides meet on Saturday you can get odds of 5/6 or conversely, if you feel that one of the teams will be able to keep a clean sheet, then you can get the same odds for both teams NOT to score.

If you do predict one of the teams will keep a clean sheet then there is more price in betting on the specific team you believe will keep the clean sheet. For Bobbly Olejnik and his defenders to block out Chesterfield then Sky Bet are offering exactly the same price as a Scunthorpe win, 3/1. However, the home side are predicted to be the more likely side to keep a clean sheet and if you feel that Paddy Madden and Gary McSheffrey will be unable to break through the Spireite defence then you can get odds of 11/8 for a Chesterfield clean sheet.

Madden is 7-1 to be the first goalscorer of the match and McSheffrey, who has scored two in his last three appearances, is 10-1 to open the scoring.

Sean McAllister, who scored his first Iron goal in the 2-0 win over Chesterfield at the end of August, is a huge 22-1 to be the first player to find the back of the net in this fixture again and a tempting 13/2 to score at anytime in the 90 minutes.

In the Johnstone's Paint Trophy match between the sides, two first half goals from the Iron were enough to send them through. The odds for there to be exactly two first half goals in this match are a very tempting 7/2, whilst if you think there will be a repeat of the match last week and the Iron will score the first goal of the match then Sky Bet are offering 6/4.

Following a recent run of good performances and buoyed by their 2-0 win over Saturday’s opponents just under two weeks ago, the Iron look a good price at 3-1 to bring the three points back to Glanford Park.
