Match Preview: Scunthorpe United (A)

The latest information ahead of tomor

8 September 2017

Fixture | Scunthorpe United vs Blackpool – Date | 9 September 2017 – Venue | Bloomfield Road

Blackpool head to Scunthorpe United tomorrow in search of their first away victory of the season. 

The Seasiders have recorded all three of their wins at Bloomfield Road so far and will look to extend that form on the road against a side that has made an unbeaten start to the campaign. 

Last Time Out:

Sean Longstaff's goal proved enough to secure Blackpool a 1-0 victory against AFC Wimbledon, though The Seasiders had numerous opportunities to add to that tally.

Scunthorpe United, meanwhile, won by the same scoreline at Bury, courtesy of a late free-kick from Josh Morris.   

Team News:

Will Aimson's return to training offers the manager several options on the formation front. The defender has been forced to sit out Blackpool's last two league outings due to injury.

Armand Gnanduillet (thigh) remains on the sidelines with Mark Cullen (hamstring) and Jim McAlister (fractured tibia).

Scunthorpe have no fresh injury concerns, so just Luke Williams (hamstring) and Jonny Margetts (knee) miss out. 

Previous meetings: 

Blackpool did the double against Scunthorpe United when last at this level, with the match at Glanford Park ending in a 1-0 victory. 

The Seasiders are unbeaten in their last four visits to the stadium, with The Iron last victorious on home soil in April 2006.

Another Point On The Road

9 September 2017

Blackpool made it five games unbeaten in Sky Bet League One after playing out a goal-less draw at Scunthorpe United.

It was a real disciplined performance from The Seasiders and a result that will no doubt please manager Gary Bowyer, despite his side having as many clear-cut opportunities as the home side to break the deadlock.  

Bowyer was forced to make two changes to the team that recorded a 1-0 victory against AFC Wimbledon last time out, with Sean Longstaff and Nathan Delfouneso missing out due to injury and illness, respectively. It meant first league starts of the season for Kelvin Mellor and summer signing Sessi D’Almeida.  

The Seasiders started the game well and had the first clear opportunity of the game inside nine minutes, as Kyle Vassell found D’Almeida inside the box but the midfielder could only drill wide from a tight angle.

The patient build-up from the visitors continued and almost resulted in an opening goal with 25 minutes on the clock. Callum Cooke slipped in Curtis Tilt down the left and the defenders cross just evaded the stretching Vassell, who looked set for a tap-in.

A free-kick conceded by Colin Daniel at the other end posed danger given the goal-record of Scunthorpe’s Josh Morris, however the former Blackburn Rovers man struck the wall.  

Ryan Allsop was called into action after 35 minutes when he was forced to tip over a looping header from Paddy Madden, while Hakeeb Adelakun watched his effort fly past the top corner and fall wide a minute later.

At the other end, Viv Solomon-Otabor did well to beat his man and force a fine save out of Matt Gilks.

As the first-half came to a close the home side had two further opportunities to take the lead. Defender Rory McArdle fired wide after latching on to a flick-on from Madden, while Allsop denied Adelakun.

Half-Time: Scunthorpe United 0 Blackpool 0

The home side started the second-half looking to pin Blackpool back in their own half, though the first chance following the restart fell to Blackpool’s Kyle Vassell. The striker was fouled by Neal Bishop and then drilled a low effort just wide from the resulting free-kick.

Scunthorpe fans were up off their seats expecting a goal when Murray Wallace tried an over-head kick from a corner, however the ball dropped wide and failed to trouble Allsop.

Wallace then went into the book for a foul on D’Almedia just outside the box. Jimmy Ryan took the free-kick this time and watched his strike be turned over the bar by Gilks.

The game remained finely balanced, though quick feet from Solomon-Otabor almost broke the deadlock but, despite getting round his man, the winger was denied by Gilks.

A near post run from substitute Lee Novak threatened late on, but the striker headed just wide.

Full-Time: Scunthorpe United 0 Blackpool 0
