Scunthorpe vs Millwall betting tips and predictions for the second leg League One play-off semi-final on Sunday evening. See our betting preview for the match below.
Its advantage Scunthorpe in the second despite a level score-line. That’s according to Lions boss Neil Harris. The two meet again at Glanford Park on Sunday evening.
Scunthorpe put in a magnificent defensive display in East London on Thursday night to emerge on level terms ahead of the second leg. Graham Alexander praised his side’s work-rate and credit to the former Fleetwood boss, he set up his side perfectly. Murray Wallace and David Mirfin were ‘rocks’ at the back and never really looked like conceding. Jordan Clarke is also worth a mention for his positioning throughout the 90 minutes. The Iron can be pleased with their performance but it’s yet more frustration for Millwall boss Neil Harris who must find a way to break down the Iron.
Millwall have the firepower and must field an attacking XI in this fixture to stand any chance of booking their place at Wembley again. The hosts ended the season with plenty of momentum and I’ll back them to get the job done here for my first Scunthorpe vs Millwall prediction. The visitors lost three of the last six on the road towards the end of the season failing to score in each of them. The best odds for Scunthorpe to win are 6/4 at Betfred.

Graham Alexander is unlikely to shuffle his pack too much. Sam Mantom could be given a start. Kevin Van Veen had to settle for a place on the bench on Thursday and the big Dutchman will be hoping to play more of a part here.
David Worrall dropped to the bench In favour of Jed Wallace who returned to fitness just in time. The former Portsmouth man will be checked over before this second leg due to the quick turnaround. Aidan O’Brien could be pitched in from the beginning as Millwall look for an early goal.
