Exeter City vs Scunthorpe United Prediction

In a clash that could impact either end of League Two, playoff-chasing Exeter City will host relegation-threatened Scunthorpe United on Saturday afternoon. A win could take the home side into the top seven, whilst the visitors are desperate for points to avoid the drop.

Having lost only one of their opening 17 league fixtures, Exeter were flying high in the table, with their eyes set on an automatic promotion spot. A run of six League Two outings without a win since has seen the Grecians slump down the table, before dropping out of the playoff spots altogether. Without a victory throughout the entirety of December, Exeter kicked the new year off with a disappointing loss to League One Portsmouth, whilst losing their place in the EFL Trophy in the process.

Such poor form has led to questions surrounding the suitability of manager Matt Taylor, but the 39-year-old coach should be confident of picking up three points against lower-ranked Scunthorpe. Non-league beckons for the Iron, unless they can turn around a woeful run of results that has seen them drop into the League Two relegation zone.

A Football League club for much of their existence, relegation to the fifth-tier is an unthinkable prospect for a club that competed in the Championship as recently as 2010/11. Having never got going this season, Scunthorpe boast just three wins from their 24 league matches so far, with just one of which coming on the road.

Scunthorpe’s only away victory this season came against the team below them in the table, with the Iron keen to add to their Boxing Day triumph over Oldham this coming weekend. It will prove a difficult task for the side placed in 23rd, not least because Exeter have won the last three meetings between the pair, whilst Scunthorpe boast just one win in their last seven trips to St James Park.

Scunthorpe will be no match for the playoff hopefuls this weekend.

Exeter City Team News

Having already brought in Offrande Zanzala from Barrow on a loan until the end of the season, manager Taylor is keen to get more signings across the line before the window shuts. Zanzala has netted five times so far this season and will likely make his debut this season.

Regardless of their activity off the pitch, Exeter’s playoff push will no doubt be boosted by the return of striker Sam Nombe, who has been absent from the side since early December. With initial reports suggesting the forward could be out for a number of months, it’s now likely he could return before the end of January.

Scunthorpe United Team News

In need of a change of fortunes, manager Keith Hill should be able to welcome back left-back Lewis Thompson, who suffered a hamstring injury last month. Unlikely to feature against Exeter, the defender should return before the end of the month.

Unlike Saturday’s opponents, business has been slow for Scunthorpe, who will travel south with the same squad they began January with. Rory Watson conceded five during the midweek defeat to Tranmere, and he will be eyeing up a first clean sheet since August.
