SECOND HALF DISPLAY WAS MUCH BETTER

27 January 2015

United and MK Dons shared the points in a hard fought 1-1 draw at Glanford Park on Tuesday evening.

The Iron went a goal up midway through the second half and could have doubled their lead with chances later coming from Paddy Madden and others before MK Dons drew level with a quarter of an hour to play.

Scunthorpe boss Mark Robins spoke of frustration at the point but pleasure overall at a turnaround in performance in the second period.

"It's frustrating because we've conceded a set play," he said.

"It's pleasing because we weren't great in the first half we couldn't really pass it to each other very well.

"Second half we were much better.

"We spoke about turning them because they're a good side.

"If you try and play them at their own game, especially when they're pressing, sometimes you'll come unstuck.

"We weren't passing it great so we had to do something different - trying and stretching the game - and I thought we were a lot better second half.

"From a chances point of view we were the better team. We created lots and lots of chances.

"The goal came at a good time for us. We've not held on, we've tried to get another goal and it's just not fallen kindly enough for us."
