27 November 2018

Scunthorpe were edged out by the league leaders Portsmouth at Glanford Park at the weekend and, despite Lee Novak's eighth goal of the season and second half pressure on the visitors, Pompey held out for a slender 2-1 victory.

The Shrimpers also come into the fixture on the back of a 2-1 defeat as they let a 1-0 lead slip to lose at AFC Wimbledon.

TEAM NEWS…

United manager Stuart McCall is set to be without Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Funso Ojo, with both withdrawn against Portsmouth on Saturday. The Manchester United loanee came off at half time with an ankle injury, while the Belgian was withdrawn early in the game following a recurrance of his hamstring injury.

Josh Morris made the bench at the weekend as he edges back from a fractured jaw sustained against Peterborough United six weeks ago, while McCall also confirmed that two further players would miss out on the trip after sustaining injuries in the build-up to the game.

Elsewhere, Matt Gilks (knee), Rory Watson (arm), Levi Sutton (thigh) and Jordan Clarke (shoulder) continue to miss out, while Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season.

PREVIOUS MEETINGS…

Last season, the Iron lost 3-2 against Southend United at Roots Hall, despite leading 1-0 early in the game through now-Shrimper Tom Hopper. Scunthorpe went 2-1 down, with Kevin van Veen scoring the equaliser before a last-gasp winner from the hosts.

Meanwhile in the reverse fixture at Glanford Park, it was the Iron who won 3-1 with goals from van Veen, Conor Townsend and an own goal from Michael Turner, who would incidentally score the last minute winner at Roots Hall just over a month later.
