Recent respective form guides

Scunthorpe United's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Iron have scored 4, a worringly large 15 have been leaked at the other end.

Hull City's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the The Tigers, and 7 goals against.

Scunthorpe U. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Npower Championship with a return of just 24 points from their 26 games thus far. Hull City see themselves just below half way in the Npower Championship, showing a record of 39 points from their 29 games played so far,
