Crystal Palace   0 - 4   Scunthorpe

Highlights: Crystal Palace 0-4 Scunthorpe

Crystal Palace 0-4 Scunthorpe

Scunthorpe grabbed their first away win of the Championship season by convincingly beating Crystal Palace.

A Danny Butterfield mistake allowed Jonathan Forte to round keeper Julian Speroni and slot the visitors ahead.

Rob Jones's flick allowed Paul Hayes to nip in at the near post and score before Sam Togwell drilled in a shot to put Scunthorpe 3-0 up.

Michael O'Connor's cool finish compounded Palace's misery along with a Freddie Sears penalty being saved.


Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock:

"I hope the lads go home tonight as embarrassed as me. We can't play like that. I can't think of a bigger embarrassment in my career.

"All you can do is apologise to the fans who I thought were terrific. I would crucify the manager if I was one of them after that."

"I don't think Scunthorpe have scored a good goal. I'm not knocking them, we absolutely put it on a plate for them. They must think they won the pools."

Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins:
"I was delighted to keep a clean sheet. It's the first time since pre-season that we have been able to work defensively as a back four. I've not had the defence that I wanted.

"It was great character from the players. We are newly promoted and have had some difficult results away from home. We lost 4-0 twice and had not managed to score.

"We changed our formation to be a bit more defensive and to give ourselves a chance going forward. With the players we have, we can score goals."
