Scunthorpe Utd. - Leicester City

Scunthorpe make their debut in second tier, currently they’re two points from relegation zone. They had some bright moments during the season, but it seems they already reached their limits and started to sink. Five competitive (four in league) defeats in a row, 17 goals conceded and just two scored in them! Far ago things went wrong, I don’t think they’ll bounce back this season and see them in League One next year. Their home record is much better, they have noticed 4 wins from eight games and took three scalps to be honored with. Preston and Sheff.Utd. 3-1 and Newcastle 2-1 were the victims of underestimation and that record calls on caution. Small teams are always motivated to put the maximum effort against the strongest, especially if they come to Glanford Park with injury problems (Utd. and Newcastle). Goalie Joe Murphy has served a suspension and will return after missing out against Watford last weekend (0-3), while midfielder Grant McCann may also return to the side. No new injury worries for boss Nigel Adkins.

Leicester also are in debut season, but their record and ambitions are opposite. They have made a very good run of results that saw them at the third place. Team is well balanced with excellent Matty Fryatt in attack (scored 9 league goals so far). They’re also in excellent physical condition. As the game comes near to the end, Foxes establish domination in game. Most of their games are decided in the second half and they have seven wins with one goal margin. After shocking home defeat against WBA (1-2), Leicester bounced back against Plymouth. They were dominating all of the game, but lacked in creating a chances and scored deep in additional time. And that’s their main problem, playing against the teams that defend with all players. Their big advantage today will be hosts’ intention to attack as Scunthorpe don’t know differently. Skipper midfielder Matt Oakley is back after a suspension and could replace Andy King. Defender Aleksandar Tunchev and midfielder Stephen Clemence remain the only absentees with long-term injuries.

Beside Peterborough, hosts are main contenders for relegation. Lack of quality, low level of team discipline and attacking and nice to watch style of play (habit from lower division) are the major reason for their sinking. Can not see any sign of possible improvement in the near future. On the other side, Foxes are with Newcastle the most compact squad in Championship. I don’t expect too much surprising results from them. Will be ups and downs, but will be always in top six. 2.34 at Pinnacle. Away win.
