Scunthorpe v Coventry Past Meetings

Scunthorpe have lost only one of their last eight fixtures against Coventry and have won each of their last three meetings.

A goal from Josh Morris was enough for Scunny in the two’s meeting at the Ricoh Arena earlier in the campaign.

City’s last win at Glanford Park came in March 2013 – goals from Leon Clarke and Carl Baker propelling them to a 2-1 victory.

Scunthorpe v Coventry Stats

The Iron have won each of their last four league games and their last four at Glanford Park – their home record is the third strongest in the division.

The Sky Blues have won only once away from home all season long and have collected a meagre 8 points from 22 away matches – the worst in the division.

Reasons for Scunthorpe v Coventry bets

Quite simply, Scunthorpe will be massive favourites to win this game and odds of 3/5 are hugely generous when considering their recent strong form and City’s haplessness on the road.

Coventry have won 16 points from their last six home games as they finally inherited some fighting spirit under boss Mark Robins, but their away form has not changed – winless in 16 on the road in the league with four draws and twelve defeats. They have failed to score in each of their last four games on the road.

The Sky Blues have had a season beyond disastrous and while Robins has brought a degree of respect to proceedings, things look set to get worse for them with no permanent stadium, doubts over their academy, no investment from their owners SISU, who are also refusing to sell to bidders desperate to wrestle back control of their club.

Morris netted against Coventry earlier in the season and with 19 league goals for the campaign, is comfortably the third highest goalscorer in League One. Odds of 11/8 for him netting against an already relegated side are more than tempting.
