Barrow win

Barrow were relatively solid in the game against Stevenage and they were only undone by the late first-half goal by Jake Reeves. On the other hand, Scunthorpe committed too many mistakes and were even unable to hold onto a lead against Swindon. Scunthorpe suffered a 1-0 defeat in their last visit to the Holker Street and a similar result could be on the cards this time around as well.

Total goals less than 2.5

Apart from conceding the goal and a few moments of danger, Barrow were relatively good in the opener against Stevenage. Scunthorpe scored only from the penalty spot and did not offer much in their opening match. After struggling for form throughout last season, things do not appear to have changed at Scunthorpe.

Barrow to score 1st

Scunthorpe scored first in their opening league match but Barrow would have been relatively happy with the manner of their offensive performance in the opening game. Even without the services of last season’s top scorer Scott Quigley, Barrow able to come up on top with the opening goal.

Barrow vs Scunthorpe: Preview of the Game

Barrow

Barrow are looking to get beyond the first round of the EFL Cup for the first time in the club’s history. After surviving the relegation scare last season, things have started on a sour note in League Two and coach Mark Cooper has the difficult job of having to choose between the cup competitions and staying in the football league. There are no injury or suspension worries for Cooper.

Scunthorpe

Scunthorpe have seen better days in the EFL Cup after reaching the round of 16 just over 10 years ago. However, they have been unable to get past the first round of the competition in the last three attempts. A priority for Neil Cox, though, will be doing well in the domestic league games after narrowly missing out on relegation from the football league last season.
