Fan Form: Scunthorpe
An Iron fans gives his thoughts on the FA Cup Third Round tie.
Every week on evertonfc.com we hunt down a fan of our forthcoming opposition to fill out the Fan Form, but this week proved more difficult than most!
But eventually we found Scunthorpe United fan Mark Dyer who is dreaming of an FA Cup upset on Saturday.
I Mark Dyer confirm I am a fan of Scunthorpe United
I have been supporting Scunthorpe United for about 14 years!
I am feeling nervous but hopeful about this upcoming game between Everton and Scunthorpe United
Our manager Ian Baraclough is doing the best with what he has got. we have the smallest budget in the Championship and it is always going to be hard for us to compete with the bigger teams.
Winning in the FA Cup against Everton would be absolutely brilliant. Some would say it is a distraction from the league, but it would be good for revenue and might raise confidence
Our home form this season has been nothing short of shocking! Six straight defeats away from home would be unacceptable but to do so at home is even worse. It would be great to end that run against Everton!
Scunthorpe’s most important player is probably midfielder Martyn Woolford he gets forward and is our top scorer, but goalkeeper Joe Murphy may need to keep us in the game on Saturday.
Everton’s best player is without Tim Cahill probably Mikel Arteta
By the time May comes around I reckon we will hopefully be just about surviving relegation from the Championship and you will probably be in the top half of the Premier League.
