History of the Scunthorpe United v Southampton fixture

Southampton travel to take on Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having managed to conjure up just 1 wins from the previous 6 games.

The last time the two teams met at Scunthorpe U. was way back in the black-and-white days of February 1964, with Southampton inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon the Iron in a Second Division match.

Recent respective form guides

Scunthorpe United's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Iron have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Southampton's away form is none too clever either, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. The Saints's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Scunthorpe U. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 33 games have yielded only 31 points. Southampton find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 38 points from their 33 matches.
