Scunthorpe 2-1 Yeovil

Two goals from Damien Mozika earned Scunthorpe United their first league win of the season at home to Yeovil.

Kieran Agard hit the post for the visitors before midfield man Mozika put Scunthorpe ahead on the stroke of half time, firing home from close range.

Yeovil quickly levelled in first-half injury time with Paul Wotton's penalty following Paul Reid's trip on Agard.

But Mozika's powerful finish from 18 yards eight minutes into the second half restored the hosts' lead.

Oliver Norwood hit the bar for the Iron, whose keeper Sam Johnstone then denied Steve MacLean a late equaliser.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Scunthorpe United manager Alan Knill told BBC Radio Humberside:

We won ugly, says Iron boss Knill

"Sometimes you have to win ugly and we really won ugly today.

"I thought first half we were rubbish. All the things we asked the players to do and all the things that they had done we just never had it.

"When Damien Mozika was with me at Bury he was a sitting midfielder and now he's a goalscoring midfielder so I had something wrong there."

Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:

Skiverton rues missed chances

"We had the chances to win three games today. We created chance after chance.

"It was a bit of our old routine where they get an attack and a well-worked goal.

"In the second half performance we took the foot off the gas and let them back in the game, they carved us open a few times and got the win they've been looking for."
