Yeovil 2-2 Scunthorpe

Jon Parkin completed his brace in injury-time to earn Scunthorpe a draw against in-form Yeovil Town.

The Glovers - looking for their sixth win in seven games - went ahead when Gavin Williams drilled in a free-kick.

Mark Duffy set up Parkin to bring the Iron level in the second half.

Jonathan Franks looked to have won it for Yeovil when he slotted home from fellow loanee Jonathan Grounds's pass, but Parkin put away Andy Barcham's spilled effort to rescue a point.


Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson told BBC Points West:

"It feels a bit like a defeat. We've had to pick the boys up as they've put in a miraculous effort over the last month.

"Had we lost our last three games I think that would have been a bitter pill to swallow.

"I've picked them up very quickly as we knew Scunthorpe were a decent team and we probably deserved to win it.

"When it's the 94th minute it's disappointing but we've picked up 10 points from 12 and we would have ripped somebody's hand off had the offered us that."

Scunthorpe United manager Alan Knill told BBC Radio Humberside:

"I'm exhausted but mostly delighted. It looked like a loss and in the end we came away with a point.

"The players have to take great credit. We did look weary and that's only to be expected with the games we've had but you've just got to keep going and we did.

"It definitely looked like a defeat and they were keeping the ball and frustrating but we just had the chance at the end.

"We knew it was going to be difficult but we gave the ball away too easy and we couldn't get behind them."
