Manager – Paul Hurst
Paul Hurst played virtually his entire career as a full-back with Rotherham United, moving into full-time management with Grimsby Town. He later went on to manage Shrewsbury Town and Ipswich Town before joining Scunthorpe at the end of last season.

Pre-Match View
“It should give them confidence and it helps with togetherness. You don’t want to go through that sort of game really but it sometimes helps give you something to build on.” Paul Hurst, speaking after his ten-man Scunthorpe drew 1-1 with Bradford last weekend.
