What are the odds?: Coral's Scunthorpe betting preview

Last week’s 1-1 draw with rivals Luton means we're still sitting on the shoulders of the top two and poised to pounce ahead of the weekend trip to Scunthorpe.

With eyes on the automatic promotion places, we’ll start as even money favourites with our official betting partners Coral, with our opponents currently down in 15th.

The reverse fixture back in August was the first league match between the two sides for 55 years, and we celebrated the occasion with a comfortable 3-0 win, all the goals coming before half-time.

Quite what to make of Scunthorpe is anyone's guess. "The Iron" have won their last four matches after losing their previous six (in which they failed to score in five) and have the second worst defence in the league.

Our strikers will certainly have taken note of that with Josh Maja fav to score first at 7/2, Charlie Wyke 11/2, and Lynden Gooch 7/1.

A repeat of August’s 3-0 win pays 16/1, we’re 9/4 to win to nil and 10/3 to win with both teams scoring.
