  • Onto the game…

Stevenage will be looking to record their first away league win of the season, and by doing so would leapfrog relegation rivals Scunthorpe United.

After recording four wins and just one defeat in October, Mark Sampson will hope to continue Boro’s good form into November and the Christmas period. Road trips have not been all too successful for Stevenage this campaign, picking up just four points from a possible 24. On the contrary, Scunthorpe United are unbeaten at Glanford Park in the league since August, with three wins and two draws.

Boro could make it three wins on the bounce in all competitions tomorrow, after picking up all three points at The Lamex Stadium against Morecambe last Saturday, and a penalty shout-out win over Fulham U21s in the Leasing.com Trophy on Tuesday.

Scunthorpe suffered a dismal start to life back in League Two after being relegated in May, with just one point from their first seven games. Come middle of September, things started looking up Paul Hurst’s men, with a resounding 3-0 victory over Morecambe to kickstart The Iron’s season.

Wins over Northampton Town and Exeter City have lifted Scunthorpe off the bottom and up to 22nd, four points clear of the sole relegation place.

Former Stevenage player Kgosi Nthle joined the Lincolnshire side from Rochdale in July 2019, but has missed the last three games after suffering a groin injury.

  • What they said…

Mark Sampson says he has been delighted with his squad’s form over the last six games, but states a trip to Scunthorpe will require more resilience and tactical discipline than previous fixtures.

In the opposing dugout, Paul Hurst is hoping to continue Scunthorpe record of six matches undefeated at home.

“The ultimate aim is to take three points but hopefully we can keep that run going and make it three wins in a row at home.”

“Stevenage are a little bit like ourselves in that I feel, from what I have seen, and been told by others, they are in a false position. I don’t think they will be down there come the end of the season, but ultimately we both are at this current time, so it is a big game from that point of view and we need to do all we can to get the three points.”
“Playing Morecambe and then ourselves are two big games for them, but they got off to a good start with a hard-earned 1-0 victory last weekend. They deserved that, but coming away from home they have had struggles like we have, and we have to make sure that continues for them.

  • Previous meetings... 

Since being founded in 1899, it may come as a surprise that the two sides have only encountered each other four times. In our first two years, Stevenage recorded one win, one draw and two defeats to Scunthorpe – before The Iron were relegated to League Two a season before Boro.

Last time at Glanford Park, Stevenage succumbed to quite a forgettable 1-0 defeat, with players such as Steve Beleck, Gavin Mahon and Ben Chorley starting for Gary Smith’s side.

A more memorable game, however, is thanks to Greg Tansey’s 75th minute free-kick, earning Stevenage a 1-0 win at The Lamex Stadium, in our only ever win against Scunthorpe.

Match Reports

Report: Scunthorpe 0-0 Stevenage

2 November 2019

Luke Broughton

Stevenage picked up a point at Scunthorpe on Saturday in a goalless draw that could have been more...

Boro forced the issue throughout the match and saw a number of superb opportunities squandered, particularly in the final 15 minutes, in another positive performance from Mark Sampson’s men.

The Interim Manager named three changes from the side that won 1-0 against Morecambe last time out in Sky Bet League Two. Paul Farman returned from suspension whilst Charlie Carter and Michael Timlin came into the starting XI in place of Jason Cowley and Ben Nugent.

Stevenage came out from the blocks quickly and almost had an opening inside just three minutes, as Guthrie was released down the right-hand side of the box behind the defence, but his pass across for Carter was well defended by the recovering Iron defender. An ambitious snap-shot on the turn from the edge of the area by Parrett flew wide of the post soon after, but it was a positive start from Sampson’s men.

Scunthorpe’s first chance of the match came on 20 minutes, as Kevin Van Veen forced Paul Farman into a tricky stop from a free-kick positioned centrally, 20 yards out, making the keeper get down to his left to parry the ball away.

A few minutes later, Parrett’s corner resulted in the best chance of the match up to that point, a powerful header from Carter – looking to score his second such goal of the week – that the goalkeeper was equal to.

Good hold up play by Lakin allowed Denton to get in down the left with 15 minutes left in the half, but his cross to Guthrie - lurking at the back-post - was slightly overhit which meant the chance was somewhat wasted.

Carter was proving to be instrumental and with the minutes dwindling down before the break, a well-hit strike with his left foot from 18 yards forced Eastwood into another good save, down to his left.

With less than a minute remaining, Scunthorpe had a rare shot on goal, this time via Colclough, whose deflected strike from distance had the crowd ‘oohing’, thankfully landing over the bar and into the travelling Stevenage supporters.

Right out from the restart, Carter had another golden opportunity with his head, this time clawed away at the back-post by Eastwood, who got across just in the nick of time.

Songo’o had a gilt edged chance with his head right down the other end – again from a corner – this time planting his effort over the bar. Scunthorpe would soon get on top of the match, penning Boro back into their own half but to little effect. Boro rode that 10 minute wave though and proceedings began to get extremely scrappy, in the worsening conditions.

With 20 minutes left, Guthrie looked to have found the match winner with a brilliant piece of skill to pluck the ball out of the air and strike on the half volley. After bringing the ball down with his head from 15 yards out, the striker took the ball under control before hitting just wide of the post.

The match began to heat up as it approched its conclusion and Farman had to be on his toes to back-pedal and palm the ball over the bar, when an over-hit cross looked to be creeping in. Then, with just over 10 minutes left, a Vancooten low cross to the back-post missed everyone and reached Watts, who couldn’t adjust his feet in time and failed to hit the target.

Stevenage ended the game by far the stronger and were all over Scunthorpe throughout the final 10 minutes.

Guthrie came the width of the post away from finding a winner when his low drive to the back-post skimmed just wide of the woodwork. He headed just wide of the post with less than a minute to go and by the time the final whistle blew, although a good point for Boro, it felt like an opportunity missed.
