So, we stumble into what is now our penultimate Sky Bet League Two AWAY fixture of 2020/21, against Scunthorpe United, the only professional football team to contain the word…I’m sure you know…
Anyway, we are practically safe, bar a mad 22 or 23 goal swing, so this game stands a chance of being a bit of a drab affair with The Iron needing 3 points to guarantee their own survival this season.
The Saddlers head into the game 19th in League Two with 49 points from 43 games. The last six games have provided 8 points for us.
Scunthorpe United head into the game 20th In League Two with 47 points from 42 games. Their last six games have provided them with just 2 points, and have been as follows:
2nd April - Crawley Town (h) - Drew 0-0
6th April - Carlisle United (a) - Lost 2-0
10th April - Tranmere Rovers (h) - Drew 0-0
13th April - Morecambe (a) - Lost 4-1
17th April - Forest Green Rovers (a) - Lost 3-2
20th April - Mansfield Town (a) - Lost 3-0
Players that have played for both clubs - get to work on this @TheBostedSlab. I’ll start you off with Kevan Hurst.
Given our relative safety heading into our last 3 games, should Brian Dutton blood more of the younger players with little pressure on them for the rest of the season, or will he stick to the core first teamers we’ve seen all season?
Also, how many of you will be tuning in, or perhaps you won’t be because there’s nothing really in it for us and this season has ground you down so much? Either way, let us know.
Just two and a half weeks to go people, and this nightmare season is done with. Hang in there.
Just to cheer you all up - if Walsall win their remaining 3 games, then if every other result went their way we could possibly head up to the balmy surroundings of 13th. As it looks, we will do well to stick in 20th. Sad.
- Scunthorpe United Win
- Walsall Win
