Scunthorpe are now just two points behind sixth-placed Barnsley

Scunthorpe kept their League One play-off hopes alive as they made it four straight wins with a comfortable victory at mid-table Peterborough.

The visitors went in front when Posh's Ricardo Santos miscued a Jordan Clarke cross past his own goalkeeper.

Tom Hopper secured the points for the Iron with a close-range finish.

Leonardo Da Silva Lopes and Aaron Williams saw efforts saved for the hosts as the Iron climb to eighth and just two points outside the top six.
