Tip Reasoning

  • Scunthorpe United have failed to find the net in 10 of their last 16 games.
  • Harrogate Town, meanwhile, have failed to score in four of their last seven matches, not hitting more than a single goal in any of those contests.
  • While lowly Scunthorpe are winless in eight, losing six of those matches, Harrogate are on their own seven-game winless run.

Out-of-shape attacks don’t promise entertainment

Harrogate Town’s seven-match winless run has seen them fail to score on five occasions and not net multiple goals in a single game during that sequence, a remarkable downturn for a side which hit three goals in each of their previous three, and have only been outscored by six other fourth-tier outfits this term.

Indeed, Harrogate have managed just three league goals in their last seven outings, and have failed to score in each of their last three fourth-tier road trips. Simon Weaver’s men have also been shut out on seven of their last 10 away outings, with their newfound goalscoring issues presenting an even greater challenge away from Yorkshire.

Opponents Scunthorpe, meanwhile, are headed for non-league after a run of one win in 16 games left them 10 points adrift of safety. No League Two team averages fewer shots per game than the 9.63 managed by the relegation-bound Irons, or has managed a worse attacking return than their dreadful record of just 26 goals scored in 38 league games.

Under three goals the smart play

With lowly Scunthorpe failing to score in 10 of their last 16 games during a miserable campaign, and Harrogate failing to score on their travels for over a month, a goal-fest should not be expected at Glanford Park.

Indeed, under 2.5 goals have been scored in six of Scunthorpe’s last 11 games and in four of Harrogate’s last seven, and looks to be the smart play for Saturday. Meanwhile, a 1-0 win for the visitors could be a decent correct score prediction, given the dire straights in which Keith Hill’s hosts find themselves.
