Scunthorpe United vs Burton Albion: LIVE SCORE UPDATES

Scunthorpe United begin their road to Wembley this afternoon when they take on Burton Albion in the first round of the FA Cup.

The Iron will be looking to reach the second round, the stage they reached last season before going out to Doncaster Rovers, by beating the Brewers at Glanford Park.

The Iron stopped their five game losing streak by drawing 3-3 with Oxford, coming back from three goals down.

Stuart McCall will hope his side can take some of the spirit they showed in the last half hour in that game into today’s match.

The team have already met in the league this season, back in September, with the game ending in a 0-0 stalemate, which was the last time the Iron managed a clean sheet.
