A bet in the HT/FT market looks the best way attack Sunday's play-off second leg.
Scunthorpe v Millwall - Sunday 18:30, Sky Sports 3
Scunthorpe got the result they wanted in Thursday’s first leg at the New Den, showing tremendous resilience (but little ambition) as they held out for a 0-0 draw. Graham Alexander was understandably pleased with the display, having seen his team capitulate at the same venue (1-3) barely a month earlier. But Neil Harris wasn’t overly disappointed either.
"It was important not to get beaten," said Harris. "I think they will play a little bit more football at home where the onus is on them to come out and attack us. We have to make sure we’re every bit as secure and resilient as we were tonight and we’ve shown we can score goals away from home. We have no qualms about going there having to get a result."
Preparation could be key. Alexander hasn’t revealed his plans publicly but we should assume the Iron made the four-hour trek back to North Lincolnshire in the early hours of Friday morning and will prepare for this like any other home game, whereas Millwall travelled up at their leisure on Saturday morning and will spend the next 36 hours together.
The Iron were convincing winners (3-0) when the two teams met at Glanford Park last December, which should ensure the Londoners pay them due respect early on. If they can withstand whatever Scunny throw at them for 45 minutes, then the cumulative effects of fatigue could work in their favour later on.
