History of the Bournemouth v Scunthorpe United fixture

Bournemouth are ready to welcome Scunthorpe United to Dean Court on Monday afternoon, hoping to improve on a record of draws against their opponents.

The previous match played between the two at Dean Court was more than three years back, in November 2002, the Cherries carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Division Three match.
