IN REVIEW: SEPTEMBER 2015

19 May 2016

We continue looking back at the 2015/16 season, moving into the second month of the league campaign...

The Iron entered the second month of the campaign with five points from their opening five fixtures, but first welcomed Barnsley back to Glanford Park for the second time in the season already - this time for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.


IRON (Goode, 90+3) 1-2 BARNSLEY (Nyatanga, 62, Watkins, 76)

After a goalless first half, the Iron bowed out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at the first hurdle - losing 2-1 on the night to Barnsley.

Lewin Nyatanga and Marley Watkins put the Tykes in the ascendancy with Charlie Goode firing home from yards out in the third minute of stoppage time for the second time in the season, but it wasn't enough to force penalties. Barnsley would be the eventual winners of the competition, beating Oxford United in the final at Wembley Stadium.#


IRON 0-1 BLACKPOOL (Potts, 35)

The Iron were the dominant force in this one, with no fewer than 23 shots, 10 of which were on target, but Brad Potts' goal following a corner ten minutes before half time handed the Tangerines victory.

Virtually all the stats stacked up in United's favour, but it was the goals tally that mattered, with Scunthorpe suffering their first defeat of the season on home soil.

IRON (Madden, 79) 1-0 COVENTRY CITY

Another dominant display at Glanford Park saw United narrowly emerge with three points at the expense of Coventry City.

The Sky Blues had just three attempts during the encounter, none of which were on target, while the Iron were made to wait until eleven minutes from time to capitalise on their pressure despite forcing the visiting goalkeeper into a number of saves.

Madden lingered on the edge of the area, seized on a loose ball and fired into the corner of the net to hand Scunthorpe all three points.

ROCHDALE (Bunney, 67, Vincenti, 85) 2-1 IRON (Wallace, 76)

A goalless first half saw Rochdale substitute Joe Bunney light up the fixture, opening the scoring just eight minutes after coming on.

Loan player Murray Wallace netted his first goal for the club nine minutes later, heading in a Gary McSheffrey corner to seemingly hand the Iron a share of the points.

Peter Vincenti had other ideas though, winning Dale the tie five minutes from time. He tapped home following a menacing cross into the area.

SOUTHEND UNITED (Timlin, 36, Coker, 75) 2-1 IRON (McSheffrey, 8)

Gary McSheffrey's stunning strike, which was voted the Iron goal of the month was cancelled out before the interval by former Scunthorpe loanee Michael Timlin. 

Ben Coker was arguably the Shrimpers' best player and it was him who would get the winner, stealing in on the left of the area before drilling low and hard into the corner of the net.

GOAL OF THE MONTH

On their travels once more, United broke the deadlock through McSheffrey's first goal of the season after eight minutes of the game. A free kick floated in by the former Coventry and Birmingham winger was cleared back to him 25-yards from goal. He controlled and sent a low drive into the far corner.

 

IRON 0-1 WALSALL (Henry, 27)

Frustration was the key word for the Iron as they suffered their third league defeat in a row at the hands of an in form Walsall outfit.

The Midlands team arrived at Glanford Park for a game under the floodlights that was settled midway through the first half when Rico Henry neatly finished into the corner of the net after being sent clean through on goal.
