Scunthorpe United 6-0 Swindon Town

Paddy Madden
Paddy Madden's strike means he has scored 21 goals in 45 appearances this season

Manager Graham Alexander celebrated his first home game in style by guiding Scunthorpe to a thumping victory over Swindon - their biggest win since 2003.

Conor Townsend's strike and a deflected shot by fellow full-back Jordan Clarke put the Iron in control at the break.

A low strike by Hakeeb Adelakun and Tom Hopper's left-foot effort made it 4-0.

And Paddy Madden's 21st goal of the season was followed by a Hopper header to seal a win which takes the hosts to within six points of the play-offs.

Swindon, who were beaten 4-1 by Wigan on Easter Saturday, are nine points clear of the League One relegation zone.
