Barrow are without a victory in the last three games, but the match against Scunthorpe should provide them with some relief from this disappointing run. Scunthorpe have been one of the worst teams in the League Two so far. It would be extremely hard to see Scunthorpe getting anything out of this game. The visitors have suffered a defeat in six out of the last eight matches in all competitions.
Total goals over 2.5
One of the reasons for Barrow struggling for wins would be the defence, which can be opened up quite easily – as was proven by Port Vale during the weekend. Scunthorpe may lack the finishing skills to get a lot of goals, but they have been poor defensively. Just two of the last six matches for Scunthorpe have produced under 2.5 goals.
Both teams to score – yes
It is remarkable that Barrow have not kept a clean sheet at home in the last six matches. Since registering a clean sheet against Exeter City in the first few weeks of the season, Barrow have gone through this barren run that should provide Scunthorpe with confidence that they can score in the fourth consecutive away match.
Barrow vs Scunthorpe: Team News and Match Preview
Barrow need to pick up a victory so that they can stay in touch with the play-off places. After a string of three consecutive games without a positive result for the team, Barrow need to be more adventurous in the home matches while focusing on plugging the gaps at the back.
Scunthorpe are already one of the favourites for relegation and their recent results do not give a lot of confidence when it comes to getting out of the bottom two. A two point deficit is developing between Scunthorpe and safety. This can never be a good sign going into the festive run of fixtures.
