Scunthorpe   3 - 1   Preston

Scunthorpe v Preston

Scunthorpe 3-1 Preston

Gary Hooper scored twice as Scunthorpe ended Preston's unbeaten start to the season with a resounding victory.

Scunthorpe keeper Joe Murphy denied Stephen Elliott before Grant McCann struck after Hooper played him in.

Hooper had a shot cleared off the line by Chris Sedgwick but bundled home from close range shortly before the break.

Michael O'Connor set Hooper clear for his second with a neat finish before Jon Parkin scored a consolation for Preston from close range.


Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins on changing a winning team:
"It's not about 11, it's about a squad. I'm sure eyebrows were raised.

"We changed the formation and Gary Hooper came back into the team and you think 'how can you leave Jonathan Forte out?'

"But we were top drawer in the first half and I really enjoyed it."

Preston boss Alan Irvine on the result and Sean St Ledger leaving:
"I'm very disappointed about both things.

"I don't think [St Ledger leaving] was an influence, we had a team out there that was capable of winning the game.

"We didn't compete as we normally do at the start of the game. We didn't deserve anything in the end. It's not the way I expect us to play."
