Scunthorpe 1-0 Plymouth

Etienne Esajas scored the only goal as Scunthorpe overcame Plymouth Argyle for a hard-earned win at Glanford Park.

The highlight of a quiet first half came courtesy of a header from Iron's Niall Canavan which was tipped over by Luke McCormick.

Plymouth started the second half stronger, but Reuben Reid had a goal disallowed for offside.

Scunthorpe finally broke the deadlock when Esajas pounced from close range after Sam Winnall's shot was blocked.


Scunthorpe United manager Brian Laws told BBC Radio Humberside:

"I though in the last 10 minutes we had to slow the game down because the tempo of the game was pretty fast - it was going end to end.

"When we got the goal, it was important that the periods that we needed to get a breather we kept the ball, and I thought we kept it really well, kept it simple and kept possession.

"I was thrilled for the players, and that's two wins on the bounce now. I hope they can march on."
