Past Record: 2019-20 Opponents

5 June 2019

We take a look at our record against the 23 teams we will face in Sky Bet League Two in the 2019-20 season.

The Iron have faced the 23 counterparts that they will meet on at least two occasions in the forthcoming campaign on no fewer than 859 times.

The most abundant fixture involving United comes against Mansfield Town with 76 previous meetings between the two sides - the most recent coming last season in the Checkatrade Trophy. Meanwhile, Scunthorpe are yet to lock horns with newly-promoted side Salford City.

2019-20 will see the first pair of league fixtures against Forest Green Rovers, with the only previous meeting being a 2-0 victory at the New Lawn back in 2014 - Gary McSheffrey netting both goals on the day. Elsewhere, the Iron have met Morecambe twice in the league and both Crawley and Stevenage four times.

Aside from the 100% win record against Forest Green, out of one fixture, United's best win percentage comes against Cheltenham Town. The Iron have won nine games out of the 16 previous meetings, which comes out as a 56.3% win record.

Scunthorpe's best goal difference is +26 against Colchester United, scoring 97 and conceding 71 from 62 games, while the only opponent which has seen the side total over 100 goals against is Crewe Alexandra with 109 strikes in 72 encounters.

In total, the Iron have scored 1,217 goals against their upcoming opponents in their history, conceding 1,116 - 101 goals less than they've netted.
