Scunthorpe United 2-1 Shrewsbury Town

Paddy Madden
Paddy Madden has now scored eight goals in all competitions this season

Two second-half goals helped Scunthorpe United come from one down to beat Shrewsbury Town in League One.

Shrewsbury went ahead on 15 minutes through loan striker Sully Kaikai's effort from outside of the box - his third goal in two matches.

Scunthorpe equalised early in the second half through Scott Laird, who rose above Abu Agogo to head in.

Striker Paddy Madden then won it from the spot - the seventh penalty Shrewsbury have conceded this season.

The spotkick was awarded for left-back Junior Brown's challenge on Neal Bishop, to sentence Micky Mellon's side to a fourth straight away defeat.

Scunthorpe manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Humberside:

Robins on Scunthorpe v Shrewsbury

"We dominated throughout. We just needed too many chances to get the first goal. Our set-plays and balls into the box were good.

"We stuck to what we were trying to do even though it was interspersed with giving the ball away at times, but we kept trying to switch the play.

"We deserved to win and, if we had drawn, I would have been really disappointed. I'll take that because you look at them and they were a big physical team with some pace in the side."

Shrewsbury Town manager Micky Mellon told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"It's always hard to lose games away from home - especially when you are one up at half-time. We have to be tougher mentally and run hard but we invited that sort of pressure on ourselves. You could see it was starting to get sloppy.

"Seven penalties (this season) is far too many to concede. We panicked, had a dive at it and pulled the guy down and so we find ourselves 2-1 down with 20 minutes to go.

"There are a lot of things we have to improve on to get results. We stopped getting hold of it up front. We couldn't stop them getting on the end of crosses. We wanted to get a physical presence in that second half, but you could the pressure was building."
