Tip Reasoning

With two wins from their last two, Scunthorpe have probably done just about enough to secure their place in the play-offs, although a win here would certainly help. Considering Chesterfield are seemingly fighting a losing battle to stay in the division, this really does look like a big opportunity for the home side to stick one foot firmly in May’s shootout for promotion.

After what was a mini-revival (unbeaten in two), Chesterfield were soundly beaten last time out and are now certain to go down, as they’re nine points from safety with just three matches to go. On this basis, backing the hosts, who’ve been solid on their own patch for most of the campaign, to record a resounding victory is the way to go. The bet that catches the eye at the prices is ‘Scunthorpe to Score Over 2.5 Goals’.

At times, the hosts have been imperious on their own patch, while the visitors have certainly been partial to a hammering or two during the course of this season. With 40 goals to their name at Glanford Park, only one team in all of League One have scored more goals. With the likes of Josh Morris and Paddy Madden, the Iron have some of the divisions most impressive attacking players in their ranks and really ought to be dismantling a Chesterfield side who’re in a bad way.

Additionally, Scunthorpe have scored at least three goals on eight occasions this season and have often filled their boots against the weaker teams. Add in the fact that Chesterfield have also tended to struggle against the better attacking teams, conceding at least three goals on 11 occasions this season, and home goals seem likely. It’s also worth noting that Scunthorpe scored three in the reverse fixture earlier in the campaign.

Quite frankly, there’s a disparity in quality between these two, while it is the hosts who’ve got something left to fight for. In front of their own fans, Graham Alexander’s men are fancied to get the job done in style by putting a rather sorry-looking Chesterfield to the sword.
