Paddy Madden
Paddy Madden's 17th goal of the season was enough to give Scunthorpe a win over Southend

Scunthorpe made it three straight wins as they edged past in-form Southend.

Iron's top scorer Paddy Madden netted the only goal of the game when he headed in his 17th goal of the season.

Southend's Dan Bentley made a succession of saves to keep the score down as the visitors struggled.

The Iron's Murray Wallace headed against the bar in the second half as Scunthorpe remain unbeaten under the charge of joint caretaker bosses Nick Daws and Andy Dawson.

Scunthorpe United joint-caretaker-manager Nick Daws talking to BBC Radio Humberside:

Daws on Scunthorpe v Southend

"I thought we started the game really well - all parts of our game came together today.

"I thought we defended brilliantly, we moved the ball really well, and we did exactly what we worked on in training during the week.

"The two outstanding saves that Dan Bentley pulled off in the first half just indicated why clubs want to pay whatever they want to pay for him."
