LAST TIME WE MET

It was an opening day to remember for Town who, despite entering the 2021-22 EFL Sky Bet League Two season as favourites to go down, went to Glanford Park and absolutely dismantled the Iron in a hugely impressive 3-1 win.

Goals from Jack Payne, Ben Gladwin and Harry McKirdy sealed the three points on 7th August 2021.

A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS

Ben Garner, Swindon Town Head Coach: "They obviously had a really good win in midweek which I'm sure will give them confidence, and they are fighting for every point at the bottom end of the table and looking to stay in the division," Garner said.

"That's always a challenge because you know how much it means to them as a group and their players and their manager, but we've got our own fight.

"We've got our own battle that we want to get back into those Play-Off positions as quickly as we can and we need to get as many points as we can, so I think both teams will be fighting for everything on the pitch."

Liam Feeney, Scunthorpe United Midfielder: "It’s been a long time coming and to win at home on Tuesday night in the situation that we did it in was the best situation we could have asked for.

"It showed real determination and fight and brought the whole club together. The boys are digging deep and the fans were brilliant; it drove us on to it and I’m glad we could reward them with the three points. We need to use that to kick on now."
