Match Preview

Beardsley May start alongside Ben Stevenage have been boosted by the return to fitness of strikers Chris Beardsley and Ben May ahead of the visit of Scunthorpe. Beardsley had been out for a fortnight due to a back problem but has trained this week, while May has worked his way back to full fitness following a knock. However, Darius Charles remains doubtful as he is still struggling with a knock. Manager Graham Westley will make a late decision on defender Jon Ashton (leg) and midfielder Jennison Myrie-Williams (hamstring) after they were withdrawn as a precautionary measure during the 1-0 defeat to Carlisle last weekend. Latest signing Don Cowan is edging closer to making his first-team debut and he could resume training next week following a ligament problem. Fit-again Guy Madjo impressed in his first appearance of the season against Carlisle, replacing Myrie-Williams at half-time, and the striker has put himself in contention for another run-out on Saturday. Stacy Long, Byron Harrison and Robin Shroot are also options for Westley. Andy Barcham returns from suspension to boost Scunthorpe. The winger was shown a straight red card in the first half of the 1-1 draw with Sheffield United, but he has since completed his three-game ban. Defender Andrew Wright is back in training following his hamstring injury. He was an unused substitute in Saturday's 2-1 win over Yeovil, but has returned to full fitness. Paul Reid should also feature after it was revealed his head injury was not as bad as first feared. He had to leave the pitch against the Glovers but tests have revealed he did not fracture a cheekbone. Sam Johnstone should start in goal after extending his loan stay from Manchester United. The Iron will be without Michael Duff, Jimmy Ryan, Josh Lillis, Cliff Byrne and Niall Canavan.

Match Report

Iron hold strong for victory Scunthorpe prevailed 2-1 after a thrilling finish at Stevenage, where there were two injury-time goals. Eddie Nolan put the Iron ahead on the stroke of half-time before Michael O'Connor looked to have sealed the points late on. However, Boro hit back immediately through substitute Josh Walker to set up a tense finale. Scunthorpe had the better of the first half and deservedly went in front. It was two minutes into stoppage time when Garry Thompson touched the ball neatly to Nolan and he crashed home an unstoppable shot from just outside the box. Chris Day had been by far the busier of the two keepers. The Iron had twice gone close but Day came to the rescue as he saved from Shane Duffy and Oliver Norwood. At the other end, Sam Johnstone saved well from Scott Laird's driven shot. After the break the heat appeared to take its toll and chances dried up somewhat, although Mark Roberts went close for the hosts when he saw a crisp drive fizz just past the post. The visitors effectively wrapped up victory in the first minute of stoppage time as O'Connor guided home a neat shot to make it 2-0, although Stevenage did have the last word as Walker pulled a goal back to set up a frantic finish.
