Irons go more direct in winter months

Manager Nigel Adkins has switched to a 4-5-1 formation in his side's last two away matches and his players have responded by taking a point from each trip to Barnsley and Reading.

He told the Scunthorpe Telegraph: "It's one of the lessons we have learned from two years ago during our last time at Championship level.

"When the winter pitches come, they are not conducive to fast-flowing football."
