SCENE-SETTER

United's Under-18s haven't had a fixture for over two weeks, with their last game seeing them defeat Bradford City 2-1 at home on February 1st.

Dan Gallimore opened the scoring before they were pegged back, However, Levi Gallimore notched an 89th minute winner to seal victory in what was their third game in seven days.

Harry Jessop, Finley Shrimpton, Charlie Barks and Cameron Wilson were on the bench for the Under-23s at West Bromwich Albion last Thursday, while Barks, Wilson, Luca Chadli started in fixtures for the same side a week prior.
 
The weekend's home game against Burton Albion fell victim to the weather.

Following postponements, the Iron sit second in the Youth Alliance League and seven points behind league leaders Doncaster Rovers, but have four games in hand on their local rivals. A win against the Stags will open up the gap between the two sides to eight points, with United also holding a game in hand over their opposition.
 
Rotherham United won again at the weekend as they collected seven points from nine in a week, cutting the gap to just a point with Scunthorpe. All other games in the division did not take place.

LAST LINE-UP: Collins, Baker (Kemp), Lobley, D. Gallimore, Barks, Train, Wilson, Shrimpton (L Gallimore), Jessop (Virgo), Dawson, Silva (Chadli).
