We turn our focus to the midweek action with a full and in-depth preview of Moors’ National League North trip to Glanford Park.
Scunthorpe United v Spennymoor Town
National League North
Tuesday 24th October 2023, 7.45pm
It’s fair to say that it’s been a dramatic few years for fans of Scunthorpe United.
The Iron were playing their football in the Championship as recently as 2011 and were an established League One club up until 2019 before a spectacular fall from grace.
Having suffered relegation from the EFL for the first time in their history in 2021/22 and, with troubles behind the scenes continuing to rumble on, they tumbled into National League North last term.
Former Commercial Manager Michelle Harness completed a takeover of the troubled Glanford Park outfit at the beginning of the month, and it will be hoped she can help navigate the club through the challenges that lie ahead.
On the pitch, Scunthorpe have been very competitive so far this season and are sitting fifth in the table ahead of their encounter with Moors on Tuesday night.
However, with consecutive home games to come they will be hoping to get back to their very best form after tasting defeat in two of their last three outings.
Tuesday night’s game will be the first time that the two clubs have ever met in competitive action.
Lewis Dickman has no new injury worries to contend with ahead of the trip to Glanford Park, with Mark Anderson (ankle) and Michael Ledger (hamstring) now back to full fitness.
Harry Jones will be the man in the middle for Tuesday’s game against Scunthorpe United, and he will be assisted by Matthew Jackson and Bradley Maw.
Moors fans can buy their tickets in advance online, though they will also be on sale from Scunthorpe United’s Ticket Office prior to kick-off on Tuesday night.
Tuesday’s game is being live streamed on National League TV meaning supporters all over the world can enjoy full coverage of the game by signing-up.
Fans will also be able to enjoy our regular live audio commentary on the game at Scunthorpe United as we continue our popular link-up with Durham OnAir.
Mark Simpson will once again be on-air from around 7.35pm to set the scene from Glanford Park and then describe all the action as it unfolds against The Iron.
Scunthorpe United have been installed as 19/20 favourites for the three points on Tuesday night, with Moors just behind at a price of 23/10 and the draw rated a 5/2 shot with the bookies.
