Match pack: Oldham Athletic (H)

2 March 2018

The Iron will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host Oldham Athletic at Glanford Park on Saturday (3.00pm kick-off).

Scunthorpe have drawn their last three games against Peterborough United, Northampton Town and Bristol Rovers respectively, twice coming from behind in the preceding two fixtures before conceding late on last time out at the Memorial Stadium.

TEAM NEWS…
Graham Alexander is waiting on the fitness of Lee Novak (heel) and Ivan Toney (groin), who both missed our last match against Bristol Rovers. They will be assessed as United prepare for the game on Friday.

Elsewhere, Marnick Vermijl is making good progress in recovering from his hamstring injury, but will still miss out in this encounter, as will long-term absentees Jordan Clarke (hamstring), Jonathon Margetts (knee) and Kyle Wootton (hamstring). Clarke is making good progress though and is back running.

PAST MEETINGS… 
The Iron beat Oldham Athletic 3-2 in the reverse fixture at SportsDirect.com Park in October.

Goals from Tom Hopper and Josh Morris surged United into a 2-0 lead before the hosts hit back - the equaliser coming from former player Craig Davies. Nevertheless, around a minute later, Scunthorpe were back in front. Murray Wallace charged down a clearance, Morris provided the cross and Duane Holmes had the easiest of finishes to net the matchwinner.

Last time out at Glanford Park, it took a late Scott Wiseman volley to secure all three points despite Kevin van Veen finding the net earlier in the game - the Dutchman's strike not deemed to have crossed the line by the officials.
