Solid Scunthorpe seem to have gone about their business quietly so far this season, the Iron having muddled along on the fringes of the play-off places but as teams continue to drop points in an extremely competitive division, Brian Laws’s troops are actually only four points adrift of the League Two summit.
They can boost their stock this weekend too as they come up against relegation-threatened Accrington at Glanford Park. Visiting Stanley have shown signs of life of late but they go to a Scunthorpe team with a strong home record and it’s the Iron that get the nod at 5/6 courtesy of William Hill.
Leaders Fleetwood have won four on the spin in all competitions, culminating in an impressive 2-0 triumph against League One Carlisle in the Johnstone’s Paints Trophy on Wednesday and the Cod Army look overpriced as they prepare to visit bottom club Northampton.
The Cobblers have won just one league victory in 13 attempts so it seems strange that Fleetwood are as high as 13/10 (bet365) to pick up a sixth away success in eight outings.
Double on Scunthorpe and Fleetwood – 16/5 (William Hill)
