BIG MATCH PREVIEW: IRON v NORTHAMPTON TOWN

7 October 2016

The Iron welcome fifth-placed Northampton Town to Glanford Park, as they look to retain their spot at the top of the League One table.

Graham Alexander’s men come into the match full of confidence, having backed up two superb league victories against Walsall and Bury with progression to the next round of the Checkatrade Trophy, thanks to a win over Shrewsbury Town in the week.

The Cobblers will be seeking a response to Saturday’s 3-2 home defeat at the hands of Bristol Rovers.



Alexander revealed Josh Morris will be monitored ahead of the game, after he missed out on Tuesday’s victory over Shrewsbury Town due to a slight knock.

Other than that, the Iron boss revealed he has almost a full squad to choose from, with the exceptions of Luke Williams and Jordan Clarke.



The two sides played out a 1-1 draw the last time they met, back in March 2014.

After a relatively quiet opening period, Niall Canavan put the hosts ahead seven minutes after the restart.

Minutes later, things got worse for the Cobblers, as Ricky Ravenhill was given his marching orders for a second bookable offence.

The ten men struck back however and, 13 minutes after going behind, Zander Diamond’s header levelled things up to earn a share of the points for the visitors.

Northampton’s Alex Revell has been in fine goalscoring form this season for Rob Page’s side, having found the net on eight occasions already in the campaign.

Revell only joined the Cobblers in the summer (after leaving MK Dons), but he’s hit the ground running, with a strike against Manchester United to his name too.
