Scunthorpe United vs Wycombe Wanderers
Saturday 29th December 2018, k.o. 3pm
Referee: Darren Drysdale
The Iron and the Chairboys go head-to-head at Glanford Park this weekend as both sides look to get back to winning ways in Sky Bet League One.
For Wanderers it hasn't been a happy Christmas in terms of results, with back-to-back defeats at the hands of AFC Wimbledon and Burton Albion respectvely, but they still sit in a healthy position of 12th in the table, 11 points clear of danger going into this one.
Scunthorpe's woes have lingered on for a little while longer and are currently on an alarming run of seven straight defeats in all competitions, leading to them currently residing in 23rd place. With 22 games left to play, there is still plenty of time to turn things around and Stuart McCall's men will be hoping a win on Saturday will be the start of a revival for the North Lincolnshire side.
When these two sides met back in October in the reverse fixture it was certainly not short of drama, as Wycombe recovered from a disastrous start to record a spectacular 3-2 win, despite keeper Ryan Allsop being shown a red card with the scores locked at 2-2.
Advanced price tickets will go off sale from the ticket office at Adams Park at 12pm today (Friday 28th December). Pre-booked tickets can be collected from Adams Park before that time, or from Glanford Park from 1pm on the day of the game.
Tickets will be available to purchase on the day of the game at the following prices:
Seniors/U21/Student (with valid NUS): £17
Under 18: £8
Under 12 (Max 2 per paying adult): FREE
Cameron Burgess returns to contention for Scunthorpe following a one-match suspension. Josh Morris faces two months out with a fractured fibula and strained ankle ligaments. Elsewhere, Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (arm) continue to miss out, Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season, while Matthew Lund (knee) is also out for an unspecified length of time. Meanwhile, Jordan Clarke (knee) is out for three months.
The Chairboys were boosted by the return of Ryan Allsop (ankle) and Adebayo Akinfewna (foot) at Burton and both will be available once again this weekend. Darius Charles (hip) and Matt Bloomfield (knee) are both nearing a return to action, but this game may come too soon for the pair.
Wycombe will be in their third choice White strip.

Darren Drysdale has shown 82 yellow and three red cards in his 22 matches in charge so far this season.
