Despite the game playing out to a goalless draw, it was still a thrilling encounter for the 2,608 (600 away) supporters to watch at the Flamingo Land Stadium.

It was a hard-fought contest between the two with Bailey Gooda putting in a stellar defensive performance alongside Kieran Weledji and Jassem Sukar for Scarborough the hold Scunthorpe to an impressive draw.

Dom Tear, Alex Wiles, and Frank Mulhern also stood out with the club praising them in their match reports for their relentless work ethic, contributing to a solid team effort under Jonathan Greening’s guidance.

Both sides produced plenty of chances, with Scunthorpe’s Michael Clunan and Boro’s Luca Colville coming close to breaking the deadlock.

Despite sustained pressure from Scunthorpe in the second half, Boro’s defence held firm, with goalkeeper Ryan Whitley making crucial saves to secure a valuable point.

The result means that Scunthorpe sit 2nd in the National League North with 62 points from 33 games played, 12 points beuind leaders Tamworth, with Scunny having a game in hand, while Scarborough are 6th with 54 points from 34 games, however, those below them have some games in hand.

Scarborough boss Jonathan Greening said: “Really pleased with the performance, much more like us I think the tempo the energy the organisation the discipline of the players to play from the shape I think um we were on the front foot you know all the boys did the jobs really well.

“We know Scunny are a really good team Jimmy’s got a real good team there you know some really good individual players who move the ball around really well so we need we had to be on it today you know tracking runners recovery runs had to be quick we had to get back into shape quick and I thought the whole team performance was back to what it was early in the season when you know we were winning lots of games of football.

“And I said to the players before the game you know it’s not rocket science football you have to work hard of them the team you’re playing against off the ball on the ball you obviously have to be good in possession which we haven’t been recently either but a little bit better today you know I think we could be miles better that as well but overall really pleased with the performance against you know a team that you know was playing Championship football I think 13 years ago you know League 2 football three or four years ago um and obviously National League last year so you know they’ve got a big budget.

“They’ve got some big players, players who have played in the Championship you know Butterfield, Danny Elliott’s played in the league um the keepers played in the league they’ve got really good quality throughout the team so we knew we had to at it today and fair play to the boys they really showed up today and I thought you know we created some good chances I think Wilsey and Dom have had a good few chances in the first half I think Frank’s had a couple in the game as well obviously they’ve had a couple of attempts because of a good team has made a couple of saves I think Brown has made an unbelievable block and Bail’s has made an unbelievable block but we knew we had to do that we had to defend well which I thought we did um but overall really really pleased.”
