Scunthorpe United and Northampton Town may be experiencing contrasting fortunes in their respective League One campaigns, however they can put this firmly to one side when they lock horns in the FA Cup on Tuesday evening. These two sides fought out a goal-less draw in the original tie at Sixfields earlier this month and the resulting replay at Glanford Park takes place on Tuesday evening, however who will emerge winners at the final whistle?

Clearly Scunthorpe start as clear favourites with the bookmakers going odds-on at 3/4 on the home side. The Iron are flying relatively high in League One following a decent start to the season and with a six game unbeaten run (in 90 minutes) behind them, they will certainly be confident of edging their way into the next round of this competition.

Northampton Town will clearly have other ideas and whilst they sit firmly in the bottom half of the League One table as things stand, they have been enjoying an upturn in fortunes of late and head into this match on the back of an excellent six-game unbeaten run in all competitions.  Indeed the Cobblers were thrashed 6-0 at home by Bristol Rovers last month but they have shown no shortage of spirit in the way that they bounced back from that hammering with just one defeat in their subsequent seven games. The evidence suggests that Northampton Town will provide the hosts with stubborn opposition on Tuesday evening and with goals in five of their last six matches, we expect the visitors to add to the scoreline. That said, Scunthorpe are proving hard to beat on home soil and we envisage them outgunning the visitors in what looks set to be a pretty high scoring affair.
