Flashback: Walsall

17 August 2021

As the Iron prepare for their second away league game of the season at Walsall this Tuesday, we take a look at our record against them and pick out three memorable fixtures.

MORRIS HAT-TRICK KEEPS IRON LEADING
Walsall 1-4 Iron
Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

League One top scorer Josh Morris netted a hat-trick as leaders Scunthorpe United cruised to a 4-1 win at Walsall.

Scunthorpe could have led inside 20 seconds when Duane Holmes pounced on Kevin Toner's under-hit backpass, but he fired wide with only keeper Neil Etheridge to beat.

But they only had to wait until the 11th minute to break the deadlock when Liam Kinsella handled from a corner and Morris swept home the penalty.

It was 2-0 on 13 minutes when Etheridge saved well from Tom Hopper only for Morris to slam home the rebound.

Walsall pulled a goal back in the 45th minute when Erhun Oztumer finished a neat run by finding the bottom corner from 18 yards.

They could have been level seconds later, but Simeon Jackson was foiled from close range by Iron keeper Luke Daniels.

That save would prove key as, just two minutes into the second half, Scunthorpe midfielder Neal Bishop lashed home from 25 yards.

Etheridge made fine saves from Holmes, Sam Mantom and Hopper to keep Walsall in it, but Morris curled a beauty into the top corner to make it 4-1 on 83 minutes and substitute Kevin van Veen almost added a fifth with a lob that clipped the bar.



HOPPER NETS DEBUT GOAL IN THUMPING WIN
Walsall 1-4 Iron
Saturday, January 10th, 2015

The Iron earned a comfortable victory at the start of 2015,

James Chambers smashed an attempted clearance into his own net and debutant Tom Hopper's clever shot gave the Iron a 2-0 half-time lead.

Michael Cain's low drive pulled one back for Walsall but Paddy Madden notched a third from the penalty spot following a foul on Neal Bishop.

Bishop's close-range shot then sealed an easy victory for the visitors.

IRON ROMP TO VICTORY IN LAWS' LEAGUE RETURN
Walsall 1-4 Iron
Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Scunthorpe manager Brian Laws marked his first league game back in charge of the Iron with a resounding victory at Walsall.

Niall Canavan nodded in the first from a corner by Mark Duffy, who tapped into an empty net for the second.

David Prutton's straight red card for a challenge on Adam Chambers just before the break offered Walsall hope.

But Canavan powered in another Duffy corner before Leon Clarke's late solo effort, while Will Grigg grabbed a last-minute consolation for the hosts.
