IN REVIEW: AFC WIMBLEDON 1-2 IRON

18 August 2016

Continuing a brand new feature, we take a look at all the essentials from our 2-1 victory over AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night.


The Iron produced a dominant first half performance which ultimately gave Scunthorpe their first three points on the road this season.

Tom Hopper headed in his second goal in as many games, with Josh Morris slotting home a penalty shortly before the interval - one won by Hopper.

The hosts made a double switch at half time and with an abundance of balls into the box, one dropped for Darius Charles to halve the deficit with a little under thirty minutes plus stoppage time remaining.

From there, United defended gallantly and threw everything in defence of the Wombles' onslaught to preserve a vital three points on the road.

At the end of round three of fixtures, it's Bolton Wanderers who top the pile with the only maximum of nine points from a possible nine.

They played on Wednesday night away at Bristol Rovers to reach the summit of Sky Bet League One.

The big winners of the midweek fixtures were Peterborough United who beat Millwall 5-1. The Posh scored two in a minute inside ten minutes and were 5-0 up with just less than 25 minutes to go. Steve Morison netted a late consolation.

Meanwhile it was another torrid evening for Sheffield United at home as they were overhauled by a Southend United side who were pointless before the encounter. The tie was sealed after fifteen minutes with all three goals coming in the opening stages of the match.

A quickfire Ched Evans brace put Chesterfield top of the division on seven points on Tuesday night as they beat Walsall, joining the Iron, Gillingham, Port Vale and Bradford City on seven points.
