|Bobby celebrates scoring in the reverse fixture|
Last weekend we welcomed Bournemouth to Glanford Park for the final home game of the season, and this was a game that although had all the characteristics to be fairly dull, was infact a decent lively game. I actually missed their goal as I headed to the refreshment bar thinking "surely that's it until half-time". Well how wrong I was, and it was a dissappointing goal to concede as Ex-Iron loanee McDermott squirmed his way into the box and finished nicely.
The second half we came out and played some really great football at times. Mark Duffy ran the show for me, his little turns in the middle then passes out wide were key. Eventually the ball went out wide to our own Clifford the big red dog, who drilled the ball across to the lurking Gary Thompson who made no mistake (He'd only been on the pitch 10 minutes!).
Back to the game this Saturday and we travel to Tranmere who lost their game last weekend 4-2 at the hands of Colchester United.
The Iron will be hoping for a repeat of the scoreline that saw them defeat Tranmere at Glanford Park earlier in the season. That day Ex-Iron trialist Mustafa Tiryaki scored 2 goals, one of them more notably which was an absolute peach, leaving Slocombe with no chance.
The Iron will definitely be without Jon Parkin and Conor McAleny who due to injury have both returned to their parent clubs. Also definitely missing out will be Mozika & O'Connor. A return to fitness saw Gary Thompson come of the bench to score last weekend so he will almost definitely be on the bench. Iron striker Connor Jennings has been promised minutes in this weekend's fixture so unless a late injury rules him out expect to see him come off the bench at some point.
Today manager Alan Knill confirmed once again that he would love to see a return of the Beast next season, should he be surplus to requirements at Cardiff City next season. The gaffer said "
At the moment we have no idea what Cardiff want to do and probably won't know until they know what division they're going to be in.
"They have a great chance of going into the Premier League and at the moment that is their focus, so all we can do is wait and see and monitor the situation."".
We look forward to seeing as many Iron fans enjoying a day out in Scouse land this weekend, and let's hope for a win. Up the Iron!
