Hakeeb Adelakun
Hakeeb Adelakun scored in the 90th minute to extend Scunthorpe's unbeaten run to nine games.

Hakeeb Adelakun's stoppage-time goal against Bradford extended Scunthorpe's unbeaten run to nine games.

Defender Miguel Llera scored for the Iron midway through the second half, only to have the goal disallowed.

Jon Stead and Rory McArdle combined on the edge of the box before the latter put Bradford in front.

Paddy Madden's second-half strike for Scunthorpe was again disallowed, before substitute Adelakun's angled shot beat keeper Jordan Pickford.

Scunthorpe manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Humberside:

Robins on Bradford v Scunthorpe

"I think it was deserved and I think had we come away and not got anything we would have felt a little bit aggrieved.

"The second-half performance was really want you want us to be about. We were attacking and at will we created all sorts of chances, opportunities that we took and then the keeper made last-ditch saves.

"Had we come away and not got anything from it we would have been scratching our heads.

"I think the lads deserve credit because it's been a real tough week. I thought we were excellent value for at least a point and it feels like a win."
