Luke Williams (right) celebrates his fifth goal of the season

Scunthorpe moved within four points of a League One play-off spot following victory over Bury at Glanford Park.

Luke Williams broke the deadlock for the Iron from the edge of the box before Danny Mayor's long-range strike went just wide for Bury.

Kyle Wootton doubled the home side's advantage at the far post after good work from Paddy Madden, before Tom Pope's header halved the deficit.

Bury's Kelvin Etuhu was sent off in stoppage time after a second booking.

Scunthorpe have won three games in a row and lie 10th in the table.
