Match Preview: Scunthorpe United v Bristol Rovers

10 November 2017

Take a look at Saturday's opponents, Scunthorpe United.

Rovers: Darrell Clarke's side travels Glanford Park on the back of a defeat on Wednesday evening against Swindon Town which saw Rovers exit the Checkatrade Trophy.

Rovers' last league fixture was a full fortnight ago, as a 2-0 victory over MK Dons helped move Rovers into 13th place, just four points outside the top six.

Darrell Clarke's view

Opposition: Scunthorpe United head into the game unbeaten in their last five outings. Last weekend Scunthorpe played out a 0-0 draw against Northampton Town, ending a spell a three away games on the bounce.

Dangerman - Josh Morris: Since his arrival in June 2016, Morris has enjoyed a consistent eye for goal.

Last season the midfielder scored twenty goals to help Scunthorpe reach the playoffs and has continued that form in front of goal this season, with six goals in all competitions.

The former Carlisle, Fleetwood and Bradford attacking playmaker scored four goals in five games between August and September. More recently, Morris has rediscovered his scoring touch, with two goals in his last three outings.

It is worth mentioning that Scunthorpe have gone on to win in every game where Morris has appeared on the scoresheet.

Last Time Out: The sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Mem back in February. Ollie Clarke opened the scoring that day, but his strike was cancelled out by Tom Lockyer's own-goal inside the final twenty minutes.
