SkyBet Preview: Town 11/10 Favourites

13 February 2015

Down in a lowly league position that probably doesn’t accurately reflect their recent form, Scunthorpe are 5/2 to beat second-placed Swindon who are 11/10 favourites.

The draw is at 12/5. The hosts have only won twice in their last five home fixtures - both wins were 2-1 victories.

Swindon have won four in seven on the road but have lost their last two which will be a slight concern to boss Mark Cooper who will be looking better here as his side bid to cement an automatic promotion spot. Both teams look like they are better in the second half when the game opens up and liberties are taken.

Two-thirds of Scunthorpe’s home goals this season have come in the second half with 55% of the goals they have conceded coming in the same period. It is a similar story for Swindon, who have scored 59% of goals in the second half while conceding 62% of goals in that time frame when on their travels. It’s even-money that more goals come in the second half than the first.

Top Tip: Half time score 0-0 at 7/4
