IN REVIEW: IRON 4-0 SOUTHEND UNITED

12 September 2016

Continuing a brand new website feature, we take a look at all the essentials from our 4-0 victory over Southend United on Saturday.


The Iron continued their fine home form with another win and another four goals without reply against Southend United.

The Shrimpers were Scunthorpe's latest victims in North Lincolnshire as they recorded a seventh league win on the bounce with Paddy Madden returning to the starting line-up to notch his first of the campaign, with Kevin van Veen doubling the advantage before the interval.

Player of the month for August Josh Morris grabbed another goal to remain top scorer in the division, with Richie Smallwood coming off the bench to seal the victory with a thunderous volley on his debut.

Bolton Wanderers remain top of the Sky Bet League One table despite being held to a 1-1 draw for the second successive week, this time against Milton Keynes Dons.

Mark Beevers gave the unbeaten Trotters and early lead but Ryan Colclough's second-half goal earned the visitors a share of the spoils with the Iron remaining hot on their heels in second place with a game in hand.

There were late goals at Fleetwood and Peterborough, where the visiting opponents both rescued points late on in 2-2 draws. Lee Novak got Charlton's second at Highbury, while Posh were denied by a last-gasp penalty from Port Vale striker Alex Jones.

That scoreline was mirrored by Bristol Rovers and Rochdale, while the points were also shared in three other League One encounters. Gillingham versus Bradford, Millwall against Coventry and Oldham's home encounter with Chesterfield ended all-square.

Elsewhere, Northampton Town continued their superb unbeaten run to 31 games as they brushed aside Walsall with Oxford enjoying a derby day victory over Swindon. Bury's Danny Mayor starred for the Shakers, netting late on to seal a 2-1 victory over Shrewsbury, while Sheffield United edged past AFC Wimbledon.
