BIG MATCH PREVIEW: NORTHAMPTON TOWN v IRON

13 January 2017

The Iron return to league action on Saturday when they take on Northampton Town at the Sixfields Stadium.

Graham Alexander’s side will be seeking a response, after their exit from the Checkatrade Trophy at Oxford United on Tuesday night.

Much of the same can be said for the Cobblers however, following the departure of manager Rob Page. He left the club after Saturday’s 5-0 defeat to Bristol Rovers.



Alexander says defender Scott Wiseman will be out of action for a couple of weeks, after he sustained a hamstring injury in the game against Oxford United.

The Iron boss also believes it will be a few more weeks before David Mirfin is back in first team action, but revealed the centre-back is progressing well.

Paddy Madden is undergoing rehabilitation for the groin injury he picked up in the match with Peterborough United. However, Alexander doesn’t expect the process to be a drawn out one.



The two sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Glanford Park back in October, with the visitors fighting back after being reduced to ten men.

Josh Morris’ superb free kick on the stroke of half time opened the scoring, and United looked to be well positioned for all three points.

Despite Matt Taylor’s dismissal on the hour mark though, Northampton grabbed a point with 15 minutes left on the clock, as Jak McCourt fired home at the second attempt.
