    This game at Banbury away on Tuesday night could be a difficult encounter for Scunny, what with our present away form added to the fact that Banbury have taken 13 poinys from their last 6 matches whereas Scunthorpe’ have gained just 10 points. But it must be a match that we go all out for a wim.

    Probably good that Blyth game was off.
    A few more days for fitness to make a breakthrough into the more damaged members of the squad. (And a game I would not have seen will now be televised. Apologies for the selfishness.)
    A slight variant on that thought is in avoiding too much fixture crowding when the strongest side is not yet available.

    The only target for tuesday is a WIN. Need to keep in that 2/3 and thereby increase the pressure on those below.

    Hope in these next 5 games a gap can be opened.

    Banbury have won the last three games but the pitch was unplayable last Saturday

    Listening to Jimmys prematch interview it sounds like Cal Roberts is getting a run out for 30 minutes or so tomorrow.
    Fingers crossed he can make a difference in the midfield alongside Butters – or will Jimmy bring him on for Butters in the second half?
    No Danny Elliot – so Im guessing hes going with one up front in the first half – maybe bringing on Bennett to partner Danny Whitehall if things are going well in the second half.
    I personally hope Danny puts more effort into staying on his feet, and less time looking for cheap free kicks, and moaning at the ref – I always worry hes going to drop the team in it and win a RED Card. Maybe he models himself on Paul Mullin :)
    Looking forward to the match and hopefully 3 points – UTI

    1-1 @ 24/5
    It’s the shortest correct score price.

    Just the one up front it is then with Bennet gone and Eliott injured.
    Fingers crossed the midfield pitch in again with a few goals. Time for Cal Roberts to shine?
    Going for a 3 – 0 win. UTI

    The games just get bigger and bigger. Can the mighty Tamworth be caught?

    Really impressed with the commentary tonight with Lee Turnbull, comes across as being quite knowledgeable. Two superbly taken goals by the sounds of it and a lot of possession in the final third.

    The commentary on the live feed from Banbury is quite funny. Scunny are a top class side at the top of their game and are poetry in motion according to them. We are playing well, but from the commentator it sounds like Brazil ’82

    Watched the live stream and listened to the humberside commentary. Good job Turnbull was there as Wishart is hopeless. Called Scales “Smith” just about every time. Roberts had been on 5 minutes before he realised.
    Good away win, 2 great goals.

    I viewed the match on NLN streaming, and really enjoyed the game, the way Scunthorpe played Banbury off the park with some really very good passing throughout, and two brilliant 25 yard goals.

    The commentators were also good to listen to, and what a change to have a first class ref, he got everything right all the time. Really, the score could easily have been 4 or 5 n. iThe only downer for myself was the constant throwing himseft to the floor was our centre forward who did this every time the ball came near him, he should have been booked for that, probably that was the only mistake the ref made, if he spent more time playing fooyball instead of looking for free kicks all the time he would be worth being selected.

    A following of 220 Scunny fans out of a crowd of 900 should be praised for going all the way to Bedfordshire, and making themseles heard throughout, well done guys.

    Bad news afterwards is that Ogle has fractured his collar bone and he will be badly missed, hope he gets fit soon.

    Best away performance of the season tonight.

    Fluid, attacking football first half, with 2 excellent strikes. Not sure how it came across on TV but The Banbury pitch was huge which seemed to be advantageous to us. Second half was more reserved but I thought we managed the game well with decent enough chances to add to the tally.

    Sounds like Ogle has fractured his collar bone so that will be him out till Xmas you’d imagine, Barrows came on and looked comfortable though; he should be a more than adequate replacement.

    We’ve responded in almost perfect fashion since the Chester debacle and now have a kind run of fixtures, we have a real chance to put points on the board and potentially open a gap up

    Barrows without doubt looks better at RB than he does CB. I do like Ogle for his work ethic and his attitude but think he’s pretty rubbish technically when it comes to passing and getting the ball in the box.

    In my opinion we may be better off with Barrows at RB as he looks a better footballer.

    I watched online, with BBC RH commentary. It was a good first half – a super performance and two superb goals. The second half was a little less fun, perhaps because Banbury seemed to alter their shape which knocked United out of their stride a little bit. All in all, though, a very successful and entertaining evening.

    They did well to make themselves heard from Bedfordshire, what were they watching? :-)

    A great watch, easily the best away performance of the season, more please.
    A slight criticism, if I’m allowed, I thought we missed a fair few shooting opportunities around the edge of the box, need to be a bit braver. (said Neil Cox)
    Kelly played RB when Ogle was injured earlier, although he’s a leftie I still think he’s better than Barrows.

    No Cass, if Cox had made that comment it would have been (really, really must be braveer)

    Nice to hear we really performed at last away from home even if me and especially MK missed it, (the first game he’s missed this season) well glad for all them who went last night they deserved that.
    On to Saturday let’s keep it going.

    Barrows to be fair to him came here off the back of a bad injury and was played in CB which he didn’t look comfortable. If Barrows carries on from last night we’ll be fine.

    Looked good last night and will only get better with more game time.

    I worked with a rugby player who broke a collarbone and was playing again in 3 weeks!
    When I did mine, however, it was five weeks before I could move properly and a month on that before I was even driving.

    Could be an age/work thing les. Fit young footballer vs ageing author?
