Scunthorpe United vs. Latics

Sky Bet League Two - Matchday 27

4 February 2022

Latics are back on the road with a trip to Scunthorpe United for their next Sky Bet League Two fixture (3pm KO).

The game in question sees John Sheridan’s men take on the Iron, in what is a crucial game with both sides desperately on the hunt for points to improve their hopes of staying in the division.

Shez’s first game back saw a goalless draw played out in a scrappy affair against local rivals Rochdale.

Form Guide

Since Scunthorpe’s 3-1 win at Boundary Park on Boxing Day, they have failed to register a single point in any of the games that have followed.

That makes it six losses on the trot and that aforementioned victory against Latics is their only league success from their last 14 attempts.

This leaves them bottom of the League Two table; however, they will leapfrog Oldham should they succeed in doing the double over them.

Goals have been hard to come by of late for United, with them scoring just two in their previous six outings, both of which coming in a home defeat to Bristol Rovers.

The Iron’s Last Six:

  1. Port Vale 1-0 Scunthorpe United
  2. Scunthorpe United 2-3 Bristol Rovers
  3. Scunthorpe United 0-1 Newport County
  4. Exeter City 2-0 Scunthorpe United
  5. Tranmere Rovers 4-0 Scunthorpe United
  6. Scunthorpe United 0-1 Carlisle United

Head-to-Head

Meetings: 56

Latics wins: 16
Scunthorpe wins: 21
Draws: 19

Scored: 74
Conceded: 84

Latics fell to a 3-1 defeat the last time that these two clubs met.

The boxing day fixture got off to a fine start for Oldham with youngster Benny Couto netting from range after just 11 minutes.

The 'boys in blue' went in at the break with a goal advantage, but unfortunately, it didn’t last long with Ryan Loft levelling things up in the 51st minute.

Myles Hippolyte later gave the visitors the advantage with just over 15 minutes on the clock and Loft grabbed his second just three minutes later to make sure the Iron left Boundary Park with the maximum three points.

The last time that Oldham got the better of Scunthorpe came in March 2018.

Goals from Patrick McEleney and Eoin Doyle gave them a 2-0 win at Glanford Park in a Sky Bet League One fixture.

Watch Out For

As previously mentioned, Scunthorpe have really struggled in front of goal lately.

The only two goals scored in the recent six-game losing streak were scored by the recent acquisition Sam Burns.

Arriving on a loan deal from Sky Bet Championship side Blackburn Rovers, the young attacker netted twice in the 3-2 loss at home to Bristol Rovers, but they proved to be just consolation strikes.

Burns can boast a very decent goal record at youth level for his parent club but other than a brief spell with FC United of Manchester has not really sampled senior football.

He will be hoping to add to his tally against Latics to kickstart his time as a Scunthorpe United player. 

In The Dugout

Keith Hill is the man in the dugout for the hosts.

Hill, 52, was appointed manager at Glanford Park on the 5th of November of last year.

To date, his only win as Scunthorpe boss came in that 3-1 win at Boundary Park and he will no doubt be hoping to make it a crucial league double over Latics this time around.

Elsewhere, the experienced boss has also had managerial stints at Rochdale, Barnsley, Bolton Wanderers and Tranmere Rovers.

Sky Bet Odds

The Iron are slight favourites for the fixture at 7/5.

Meanwhile Oldham are 7/4 to claim three massive points.

Neither side would be happy for a point from this fixture but 23/10 is the price available for a draw in this one.

Match Reports

Scunthorpe United 0-1 Latics

5 February 2022

Latics secured a colossal victory in a highly-anticipated ‘six-pointer’ against Scunthorpe United as John Sheridan goes in pursuit of a third ‘Shezurrection’.

On a bitterly cold afternoon in Scunthorpe, the ‘boys in blue’ showcased immense character in order to reward the 1,500 travelling fans, who were loud throughout the encounter, with a much-needed win.

With the game seemingly destined for a stalemate, uprose academy graduate Junior Luamba as he became the hero after being introduced from the bench.

The decisive goal arrived in the 83rd minute when Nicky Adams floated an inviting corner towards Carl Piergianni, and the defender clipped the ball into the path of the youngster before his acrobatic effort found the back of the net.

Following a professional display that earned a point against Rochdale, Sheridan opted for two changes to his starting XI with Mike Fondop and Tope Obadeyi replacing Dylan Bahamboula and Alex Hunt. Originally, Jack Stobbs was selected in the side, however, suffered an injury in the warm-up.

Upon his return to Latics, Obadeyi instantly started on the front foot and asked questions of his marker. In the ninth minute, the wideman received possession on the edge of the area, and then, manufactured space for himself, but he dragged his low effort wide of the target.

Unfortunately, Fondop suffered a head injury which meant that his debut for the club was cut short as he was replaced by Bahamboula with his name echoing around the ground courtesy of the away support.

Keith Hill’s side, who haven’t won since our reverse fixture on Boxing Day, earned a free-kick on the edge of the box as Tyrese Sinclair, an attacker that enjoyed a stint in the Latics academy, was brought down by Sam Hart. The Mansfield-loanee could only drill his set-piece into the wall to his relief of the Oldham dugout.

The Iron, rooted to the foot of the division, had a positive start to the second-half which was exemplified as Rekeil Pyke beat a few defenders to race to the byline before he managed to pull it back to fellow deadline day recruit, Joe Nuttall, however, the striker flicked his attempt over the crossbar.

With the away contingent vocal in a packed terrace, Latics applied pressure on the Lincolnshire-based outfit with Adams’ corner finding Piergianni, but the towering skipper steered his header wide of the near post.

In the 83rd minute, the away end absolutely erupted which resulted in carnage. In typical fashion, Adams delivered a pinpoint corner towards Piergianni with the skipper navigating the ball into a dangerous area, and then, Luamba produced an overhead-kick into the far corner for his second professional goal of his career.

Shez’s outfit remained disciplined and structured until the final whistle which meant that Latics secured their first win at the Sands Venue Stadium since Eoin Doyle and Patrick McEleney got themselves on the scoresheet in March 2018.
