VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "I am surprised to see them down there because they have some experienced players and a real goal threat. We got good reports on their win over Peterborough so we will be prepared for a very tough game again."Dean Saunders


 "Mark Robins (Scunthorpe manager, pictured):The teams below us including Crawley have put some decent runs together so these are the games we've got to equip ourselves well in to stand a chance of staying in the division. We're in a relegation fight and we've got to stand up and be counted. We've got to outscore the teams below us in terms of points.”


DID YOU KNOW?

Reds beat Scunthorpe 3-0 in our first ever game in League One back in August 2012.

  

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

This will be the fourth meeting between the clubs with one win apiece and a draw at Crawley in November when Dean Leacock and Izale McLeod scored in a 2-2 thriller. Matt Sparrow scored our goal on our previous visit to Glanford Park in 2013, but the Iron hit back to win 2-1.
