BIG MATCH PREVIEW: IRON v SHREWSBURY TOWN

10 February 2017

The Iron will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on Shrewsbury Town at Glanford Park on Saturday.

Graham Alexander’s men slipped to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Southend United last weekend, but they’ll be seeking a response against the Shrews.

However, the visitors come into the game in good form - having taken three wins out of their last five outings.



Alexander revealed all of the injured players are making good and steady progress, but didn’t want to put a timeframe on their respective returns.

Neal Bishop is available for selection after having his dismissal against Southend United rescinded.



A David Mirfin header moments before the half time interval was enough for all three points when the two sides last met, back in September.

Scunthorpe probed for an opener throughout a closely fought first period, and went ahead after Mirfin glanced home Josh Morris’ delivery from the right.

Paddy Madden had the opportunity to seal things 20 minutes from time, but Mirfin’s strike ensured victory and top spot in Sky Bet League One for the Iron.
