Torquay United vs Scunthorpe United: Top Free Betting Tips

Wrexham added to the Gulls' woes last weekend while the Irons triumphed over Dorking. In this context, the Round 12 of the National League meeting between Torquay United and Scunthorpe United at Plainmoor becomes all the more interesting for fans and neutrals alike.

Scunthorpe United to Win

Despite their home advantage, it is difficult to rule in favour of Torquay United. They have struggled this season and have lost their last three wins at home. Scunthorpe's form on the road is not much better but we are relying on past H2Hs to decide on our winner. Not only do the Irons arrive on the back of a victory, they have also won three of their last four meetings with Torquay.

Over 2.5 Goals

Four of the last five matches involving Torquay have concluded with Over 2.5 Goals. It is two in five for the visiting Irons. However, Scunthorpe's last match saw five goals, out of which they sent three past their rivals. Given the hapless defending of both sides in recent outings with 24 goals conceded between them in their last five outings, we are expecting plenty of goalscorers in this match.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Both Torquay and Scunthorpe have managed to score a goal per game in their last five outings. However, it is the 15 conceded by the former and 9 allowed by the latter that gives belief to our BTTS prediction for this fixture. History is also on our side as four of their last six encounters saw both teams scoring.

Torquay United vs Scunthorpe United: Team News and Match Preview

Torquay United

Gary Johnson has a tough task on his hands as he looks to arrest Torquay's slide in the National League. The Gulls conceded just three goals in their opening five matches but have since allowed 15 in the following five. At the same time, no improvement is seen in the attackers' output which remains dismal at 6 strikes from 10 outings. Johnson and his team need to act swiftly or it will be a long season at Plainmoor for everyone involved.

Scunthorpe United

The caretaker appointment of Tony Daws has stopped the freefall of Scunthorpe United. The Irons are still haemorrhaging goals but the improvement in goalscoring has allowed them to register a three-match unbeaten streak. Their 3-2 win over Dorking was a joy to behold as United overcame a two-goal deficit to claim the three points on offer. It saw them getting over the line after registering draws against York and Altrincham.
