JOHN KRETLOW - Friday, September 7, 2012
Mike Grella looks to put Scunthorpe United in the win column for the first time this season against Sheffield United, while Robber Rogers and Stevenage take on Coventry City in League One play.
Scunthorpe United - Sheffield United
Mike Grella and Scunthorpe United host Sheffield United as League One play gets back to action.
Since arriving at Scunthorpe, Grella has been a regular and should be in the lineup once again on Saturday.
The Iron has struggled in the young season thus far, having garnered zero points in the four league games they have played. The American forward has scored Scunthorpe's only league goal of the season.
Meanwhile, Sheffield United is unbeaten this season. They are coming off an offensive explosion scoring five goals in their win over AFC Bouremouth last week. The Cherries look to continue their momentum with a win this weekend.
Paul Reid will miss because of a broken hand for Scunthorpe.
Coventry City - Stevenage
Robbie Rogers and Stevenage take to the road and play Coventry City on Saturday.
Rogers played 63 minutes in Stevenage's loss in the Football League Trophy game earlier this week and was on the field for 60 minutes in the Boro's League One draw with Shrewsbury Town a week ago.
The American midfielder is likely to see the field in this weekend's game.
Stevenage is currently unbeaten this season and sitting in a strong sixth place in the standings. They look to continue their momentum and lengthen their streak with a win on Saturday.
Coventry City is winless this season, having garnered three draws and a loss. The Sky Blues look to put their season on a positive path this weekend.
Frank Simek hopes to see the field when Carlisle United travels to play Hartlepool United.
Jon Paul Pittman and Oxford United take on Exeter City this weekend.
