Tip Reasoning

  • Port Vale manager Darrell Clarke won three of his last four H2Hs with Scunthorpe.
  • Scunthorpe failed to win 13 of their 14 away league games this season.
  • Scunthorpe are on League Two’s longest current losing streak (five games).

Wounded Port Vale can still push for the play-offs

While Port Vale are winless in four games, they will be buoyed by the fact that they stopped the rot with a draw last time out and they still hold a game in hand, victory will bring them within touching distance of the play-off places.

Here, they face a woeful Scunthorpe outfit, who have picked up just nine of a possible 42 points on the road this season, thus cementing them as League Two’s worst performing away side. Damningly, Scunthorpe haven’t scored in 193 minutes of away play, while conceding seven goals during that time.

The gap is widening on sorry Scunthorpe

With their latest defeat, the gap between Scunthorpe and safety widened to six points. Their position in this division appears more tenuous by the week and that is largely down to a woeful strike force which has scored 0.77 goals per-game, more than only Carlisle.

Visiting manager Keith Hill won his last two meetings with Port Vale, though his side on the day scored just one goal as they lost three straight visits to Vale Park ahead of this latest edition.

It is difficult to tip up Scunthorpe in this moment, so I predict a home win as Port Vale look to get back in the hunt for a play-off place. What better fixture to end a rotten run of form in than against the league’s worst away side? I am going for a workmanlike 2-1 home win.
