Footymad preview History of the Scunthorpe United v Tranmere Rovers fixture

Tranmere Rovers face a trip to Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 15 and win only 6 of the 28 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Glanford Park was less than a year ago, in October 2011, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 2 thriller, in a League One match.
