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 was a very well-deserved win. The only issue I had was whether we were going to get that second goal. We did and we managed to keep a clean sheet too, so I’m delighted. We want to pride ourselves on clean sheets and that’s another one.” Paul Hurst, speaking after the 2-0 win at Oldham on New Year’s Day.
