The Opposition
Scunthorpe United hit back at the weekend with a 5-0 drubbing of bottom side Bishop’s Stortford to wipe away the painful memories of their shock 4-0 defeat at Darlington last Tuesday.

The Iron enjoyed a wonderful first half of the campaign but have found victories harder to come by since the turn of the year and their triumph at Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday was just their fourth in the last 13 games.

Jimmy Dean’s men remain second in the table but look set to have to settle for a play-off place after slipping 12 points behind runaway leaders Tamworth in the battle for the title.

Previous Meeting
It was a night to forget when Moors made the trip to Glanford Park in October as The Iron turned on the style to thump home six unanswered goals to enjoy their biggest victory of the season.

Team News
John Lufudu will miss the clash with Scunthorpe United as the defender begins a two-game suspension after reaching 10 yellow cards for the season.

Lebrun Mbeka was forced off with a knock during the second half of Saturday’s win over Darlington but it is hoped he will be given the green light to feature, while Glen Taylor is nearing fitness after knee surgery.
