Paddy Madden scores Scunthorpe's winner at Doncaster
Paddy Madden scored the only goal of the game to give Scunthorpe victory

Scunthorpe stretched their unbeaten away run to four games with a hard-earned win at Doncaster.

Paddy Madden gave the Iron the lead in the first half as he tapped in Luke Williams' cross from the left.

Cedric Evina and Nathan Tyson both hit the side-netting for Doncaster before the break and Evina shot just wide after the interval for the hosts.

Cameron Stewart, on loan from Ipswich, came closest to levelling the scores when he hit the crossbar in added time.

Scunthorpe United manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Humberside:

"It's a magnificent way to start the Christmas games, so I'm absolutely delighted.

"It was a great performance, great goal scored and a really good solid away performance.

"The best present you can get is three points."
