WHO ARE THE SHOTS PLAYING?
Following two home fixtures, Shots are back on the road, this time travelling to Glanford Park to take on Scunthorpe United. Scunthorpe are currently 23rd in the National League, picking up 10 points from the opening 12 games this season.
HOW DID THEY DO LAST SEASON?
Scunthorpe, along with Oldham, were relegated from League Two last season. After 46 games, Scunthorpe finished the season in 24th, with 26 points from those games. Scunthorpe were eliminated in the first round of the EFL Cup and the FA Cup, losing away to Barrow in the EFL Cup and losing at home to Doncaster in the FA Cup.
HOW HAVE WE GOT ON AGAINST THEM IN THE PAST?
Shots and Scunthorpe last met way back in the 90s, with both sides picking up victories in the 1990-91 League Division Four season, Scunthorpe winning the last meeting 6-2 in January 1991.
WHO IS THEIR GAFFER?
Following the sacking of Keith Hill in August, Tony Daws was appointed as interim manager of Scunthorpe. Daws previously took charge of of Scunthorpe in 2011, managing one game as interim manager before Alan Knill took charge of the side. Scunthorpe currently have four draws and a win under Daws.
SCUNTHORPE SQUAD UPDATE:
Scunthorpe will be without Reagan Ogle for this fixture, as he has picked up 5 yellow cards in 11 games, meaning he is out through suspension. Of the rest of the squad, new signings, Marcus Dewhurst, Andrew Boyce, and Jacob Butterfield have all started the opening 12 games, along with Joe Nuttall, who joined the club back in January 2022. Ogle had started all 11 of the games he played this season, so he will be a big miss for Scunthorpe. George Taft, as well as Mason O’Malley, Alfie Beestin, and Jai Rowe have all played over 600 minutes each so far this campaign, with Jai Rowe likely to step in for Ogle at right-back.
There is just the one former Shot in the Scunthorpe team, Colin Daniel. Daniel spent a spell on loan with Shots last season, making 10 appearances. He joined in late February, and remained with the Shots until the end of the season.
