Scunthorpe know all that stands between them and an FA Cup third round tie with Chelsea, which must be viewed as a ‘winnable game’, is a replay win over Leyton Orient!

In theory this easy enough but the reality is this isn’t going to be as cut and dried as that.

With this second round replay, following the nil-nil draw at Brisbane Road on Saturday, at Glanford Park the Iron would be the favourites to progress to this third round tie at Stamford Bridge with those all important ticket details also released for the game that will kick-off at 7:45pm on Tuesday 15th December.

Prices for the replay are as follows:-

Adults – £12
Seating – £6
U16 – £2

Adults – £10
Seating – £5
U16 – £2

Adults – £20
Seating – £14
U16 – £10

These are, of course, on sale now!

Jamie Ness made his return from injury in the tie as well with him telling the Official Website he was disappointed the tie wasn’t won but the most important thing was Scunthorpe remained in the FA Cup.

‘It’s disappointing really that we didn’t get the win. It was a difficult game with difficult conditions, and they probably adapted to it better than us. The good thing is we still have a chance in the replay, and hopefully we can get into the next round.’

As for his own performance he conceded, which is understandable seen as he’s been out since September, he was ‘a bit rusty’ but feels the coming weeks, with more minutes gained, will see him get back to his best.

Some involvement against Port Vale on Saturday is something he would like and as much as it’ll be another difficult game he feels it’s a League 1 game the Iron should be ‘looking forward’ to, adding.

‘I’m a bit rusty still. It’s been a frustrating few weeks so it was nice to get back out there, and hopefully I’ll get some more minutes on Saturday. It will be a difficult game because they are playing quite well at their place, but it’s one we are looking forward to, especially after the last league game.’
