Bristol to Win
After finishing 2021 with a victory the new calendar year has not been kind o Scunthorpe who have lost four matches on the bounce. On the other hand Bristol are unbeaten in 2022 League Two fixtures, winning twice. They earned the three points on offer in last trip to Sands Venue Stadium and should manage it again given their rivals' hapless form.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
It was a 0-1 result that the Pirates earned against Scunthorpe. Their prior duels had concluded in a similar fashion with four of their last five meetings finishing with an Under 2.5 scoreline. Both side's recent goal scoring tally hints at more of the same. Scunthorpe have only scored three goals in their last five outings while Bristol's tally of eight is far superior. However, they have struggled on the road with just four away goals in the same amount of away fixtures.
Both Teams to Score: No
As evidenced by their recent scoring form, Bristol have found it easier to score as compared to Scunthorpe. The Pirates have been shut out once in thier last five fixtures and have one clean sheet on their name as well. On the other hand, the Iron have struggled to give a decent account of themselves. They have not scored in their last four fixtures, hence our confidence in both teams not scoring in this meeting.
