Scunthorpe United lost out on promotion at the end of last season after losing to Millwall in the play-off semi-final, however they are impressing in the current campaign with the Iron sitting fifth in the League One table following a decent start to the season. Graham Alexander's side head into this match on the back of a five-game unbeaten run and we believe that they will extend this streak when they welcome Bristol Rovers to Glanford Park on Saturday afternoon.

Things haven't been going quite so well with Bristol Rovers, the Gasheads sitting in the bottom half of the table following some hit-and-miss performances. Darrell Clarke's men started October in excellent fashion with a 6-0 thrashing of Northampton Town, however they couldn't build on this emphatic win and subsequently embarked upon a dismal run during which they failed to find the net in three back-to-back League One defeats while conceding a total of six goals along the way. A 2-0 win over MK Dons proved to be a brief respite and they head into this weekend's clash on the back of successive defeats to West Ham United U21s (1-3 - Checkatrade Trophy) and Notts County (4-2 - FA Cup).

Can the Gasheads bounce back when they head to Glanford Park on Saturday afternoon? We don't believe so. The Iron have been solid on home turf this season with just two defeats in front of the home supporters while Bristol Rovers have lost all-but-one of their last eight away matches. The evidence points very much towards a home win on this occasion and with the /free-bets going odds-against at 5/4 on Scunthorpe United to win, there is certainly value in backing the hosts on Saturday afternoon.
