Brian Laws says current Scunthorpe United will be 'different proposition' to one previously beaten by Yeovil Town
SCUNTHORPE United will attempt to do something no other League One side has achieved since Boxing Day this afternoon - stop Yeovil Town from winning.
The glorious Glovers face the improving Iron on the back of seven successive league wins, a run which includes impressive victories against the likes of Sheffield United, Brentford and Coventry City.
But having seen his side turnaround their fortunes in front of their own fans in the past couple of weeks, taking nine points from nine, Scunthorpe manager Brian Laws is confident they can resume what have largely been some pretty decent performances on the road at Huish Park.
"This is going to be a cracking game between two teams that are in form," predicted Laws, who has overseen four wins and as many defeats away from Glanford Park since returning as Iron boss.

"I expect a real tight contest, but it is one we can win.
"We've been very fortunate since we came in that the players have been magnificent away from home, particularly in their work ethic.
"This is a tough game for us. Yeovil will be expecting to win because they're at home. They'll want to achieve eight league wins on the bounce.
"But we've got a habit of turning things on their head. We're more than capable of doing it again."
Scunthorpe memorably halted run of eight successive wins in all competitions for Leyton Orient just before Christmas when they romped to a 3-1 success at Brisbane Road.
They have the added incentive today of trying to gain revenge for a 4-0 defeat against Yeovil at Glanford Park during the second week of the season, a result which remains their equal worst of the campaign.
Glovers boss Gary Johnson, who yesterday scotched talks linking him with the managerial vacancy at Coventry, says the Westcountry outfit are 'playing with an attitude of invincibility'.
Laws though insists the current Iron side will given their hosts a much better game than when the two clubs met previously.
He insisted: "We're a different proposition now and I'm sure their manager will be aware of that.
"I've looked at the (4-0) game on DVD. It wasn't pleasant to watch but a lot of that was down to our own downfall.
"This game is totally different. He (Johnson) will be expecting a tougher contest."
