Big Match Preview: Millwall v Iron

31 March 2017

The Iron face Millwall at the Den this Saturday, with Graham Alexander’s men looking to build on an impressive victory over Bradford City last time out.

That success against the Bantams saw United move back up to fourth in the Sky Bet League One table, and they face a Millwall side who sit just two places below them.

Saturday’s opponents will be seeking a response however, after slipping to defeat at the hands of Sheffield United on Tuesday night.



Scunthorpe boss Alexander has ruled defender Charlie Goode out for the rest of the season with the ankle ligament injury he sustained against Bradford.

He also added that neither striker Kevin van Veen or midfielder Sam Mantom will be available for the weekend.



The Iron ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in the two sides’ last meeting, back in December 2016.

Paddy Madden put the hosts ahead nine minutes before the break at Glanford Park, glancing home a header from Josh Morris’ right-winged free-kick.

Hakeeb Adelakun then gave Scunthorpe a two goal cushion at the interval, with the winger drilling the ball past Millwall ‘keeper Jordan Archer at the second attempt.

The win was wrapped up midway through the second period, as Madden got his second. Tom Hopper teed the Irishman up with a square pass that left his strike partner with the simplest of finishes.
