The Iron face Burton Albion in the FA Cup first round

Scunthorpe United have been drawn at home to Burton Albion in the first round of the FA Cup.

The Iron have a decent record against the Brewers, having lost just one of the five competitive games between the two sides.

In their most recent encounter, Stuart McCall’s side claimed a 0-0 draw at the Pirelli Stadium less than a month ago.

United were knocked out in the second round of the competition by Doncaster Rovers last season and will be hoping to progress further this time around.

The first round is scheduled for the weekend of 9 November.
