Scunthorpe United midfielder Josh Wright believes that Swansea City’s 8-match unbeaten run doesn’t mean a thing ahead of tomorrow’s game at Glanford Park.

The 20 year-old says the Iron have the psychological advantage after they beat us in the Carling Cup 2nd round at the Liberty Stadium, the match where the Swans had 3 players sent off.

Tomorrow will their firstvLeague meeting of the season.

Wright said:

‘We’re going out to win tomorrow and have got a very good chance of doing that,’

‘As much as they’re unbeaten in quite a few games, that doesn’t mean a thing. It’s always got to come to an end at some point.

‘We’ve got to go into the game knowing that we’ve got a very good chance of winning and get something out of it.

‘It’s always a little psychological advantage when you’ve already beaten them once.

‘We’ve proved we can beat them and that was away from home as well.

‘I think we’ve got an even better chance of beating them at our place.

‘We seem to do well here, with our own crowd and our own pitch. It all helps.

‘It’s important that we keep picking up points at home because if we keep doing that, we should leave ourselves in a good position.’


After a slow start to their Championship campaign after achieving promotion from League One, Scunthorpe have enjoyed an improved run of form lately and they haven’t lost at home since the end of August. They recently beat Newcastle United 2-1 at Glanford Park, proving that Paulo Sousa’s side have another tough game this weekend.
