Scunthorpe United are treading water in League Two. The Iron are in a position in the current campaign where they are good enough to avoid the drop into the National League, but lack the quality to press up the table to challenge for a playoff spot.
Scunthorpe manager Neil Cox was understandably upbeat after his side caused a huge upset in Cambridge on Tuesday evening, as they defeated the league leaders 1-0.
The Iron made it four wins on the bounce on Saturday thanks to a 3-1 victory over Harrogate Town, a game that saw midfielder Lewis Spence score an absolute screamer.
The Iron are close to agreeing a deal which would see centre back George Taft join on a permanent deal from Bolton Wanderers, following his impressive loan so far.
Midfielder Alex Gilliead is ready and prepared to fight during the relegation three pointer with local rivals Grimsby this weekend.
Iron manager Neil Cox was left frustrated with the entire team as his side fell to defeat once again at the Sands Venue Stadium.
Just as fans were starting to talk on social media about the need to lock down in form players that are out of contract this summer, Scunthorpe have revealed Alfie Beestin has signed a contract until June 2022.
The Iron have unveiled the signing of German centre forward Kenan Dünnwald-Turan on a two-year deal.
Cox, who started his illustrious career at the Iron, has come back to his home club 29-years after he initially left the club to further his career.
Russ Wilcox will return to his former role as the Scunthorpe under 23s manager ahead of the new season, with a new manager reportedly set to be in place by Monday.
