BIG MATCH PREVIEW: IRON v SHREWSBURY TOWN

4 October 2016

The Iron have the chance to make it two wins from two in the Checkatrade Trophy, when they face Shrewsbury Town at Glanford Park.

Graham Alexander’s men kicked off their campaign with a 2-1 success at home to Middlesbrough in August, with Murray Wallace and Hakeeb Adelakun getting the goals.

Victory over the Shrews would put United in a strong position to progress to the knockout phase of the competition, and they could even seal their passage if results go their way.



Alexander says both Jordan Clarke and Luke Williams are both still a few weeks away from returning to the side.

He also revealed Josh Morris will miss the clash with Micky Mellon’s men due to a slight knock sustained in the victory over Bury.



The last meeting between the two sides was as recent as last month, with Scunthorpe taking all three points in a 1-0 victory at Greenhous Meadow.

David Mirfin got the only goal of a tight affair, glancing home a header from a Josh Morris free-kick on the stroke of half time.

The visitors had opportunities to seal the game, but ultimately had to settle for just the one strike, in a well deserved away win.

After making his breakthrough at Northampton Town, Ivan Toney went on to join Newcastle United in 2015.

Since then, the 20-year-old has had loan spells at Barnsley, and has spent all of this season so far with Shrewsbury.

He’s impressed too, scoring three goals in the relatively short period of time he’s been at Greenhous Meadow - the most recent against Swindon Town on Saturday.
