Manager's Preview

Form Guide

Scunthorpe United's 72-year stay in the Football League came to an end after defeat against Leyton Orient on Good Friday. It's been a tough season for Keith Hill's side, who are without a win since their 1-0 home victory against Walsall in February. Their last six league outings have seen a return of two points from a possible 18 and a 1-1 draw in their last home game of the season against Harrogate included seven teenagers as Hill rung the changes. Cameron Wilson scored his first career goal and Scunthorpe's only goal of the game.
