Scunthorpe have found a bit of form, with the Iron having nailed back to back wins in League Two.

Will they be able to continue their surge as they play host to Colchester on Tuesday night?

This isn’t an easy game for them as Colchester are sitting up inside the top ten in the division. But it’s been one win in four from the U’s.

Scunthorpe Preview – Can the Iron make it three in a row?

Scunthorpe have won their last two league games and four of their last six. So they are on the up.

They have rattled off seven goals in their last two games as well.

On the weekend they played host to Leyton Orient and took a 2-0 success, which was just their second home win of the campaign (D2 L3).

That success saw Scunthorpe end a run of four games without a win at Glanford Park in the division.

If you stack things up across all competitions, Scunthorpe are only W2 D2 L7 at home this season with only one clean sheet in their last eight.

But there has been better from them recently and the Iron are 6/4 in the match outright to collect the victory* (odds taken 23:52 GMT Sunday, 6th December).

So let’s break down Scunthorpe’s home form a little more.

They are yet to face anyone outside of the current 13 at home this season.

The two wins happened against Carlise and Leyton Orient, both of which are in the top eight.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 correct score

(odds taken 23:52 GMT Sunday, 6th December)


No question there has been a lack of goals from the Iron this season. They have only managed 6 goals in 7 home games.

It’s not been great at the other end as Scutnhopre have conceded an average of 1.7 goals per home fixture.

They have also been trailing at the halftime break in three of their seven home games.

Only five teams have worse home records than Scunthorpe this season.


Colchester Preview – Can the U’s continue good form

Colchester earned a 2-1 home win over Grimsby on the weekend, which leaves them with only one loss in their last eight games in all competitions.

So they are in pretty good shape at the moment.

On their league travels this season, surprisingly the U’s are yet to record a win.

It has been a D4 L3 record that they have taken on their travels.

Colchester have lost three of their last four games out on the road in League Two this season.

They have conceded an average of two goals per away game as well, which could open a door for Scunthorpe on Tuesday.

Looking at the results that Colchester have taken on the road, they have drawn all four road games against teams currently in the bottom half of the table.

So they are going into this one as a 6/4 quote in the football betting match outright or get all three points* (odds taken 23:52 GMT Sunday, 6th December).

Based on their away form this season, they too look a little vulnerable.

Colchester have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last eight games now in the league.

But as a bit positive they have struck the back of the net in each of their last fourteen, home and away.

Of the 14 away goals that Colchester have conceded this season, eleven of them have been in the second half of fixtures.

So that is the area in which they have really fallen down.


Scunthorpe vs Colchester Betting Advice

This is an interesting game. Scunthorpe perhaps are just turning a corner as they go in search of their third straight league win.

We think that the draw however in the match outright is the best option there at 9/4* (odds taken 23:52 GMT Sunday, 6th December).

That’s because the overall home form of the Iron at Blundell Park has not exactly been brilliant.

  • Scunthorpe are undefeated in their last four at Blundell Park against the U’s
  • Scunthorpe have won 2 of 11 home games in all competitions
