Scunthorpe   1 - 3   West Brom

Scunthorpe v West Brom

Scunthorpe 1-3 West Brom

Graham Dorrans bagged a brace as West Brom maintained their promotion charge with victory over nine-man Scunthorpe.

The Scot opened the scoring when he volleyed home from 12 yards, only for Rob Jones to equalise with a rebound.

Andrew Wright then saw red for a second yellow card, though, and after Jones had felled Dorrans, the midfielder scored from the spot for 2-1.

Grant McCann was later sent off for foul language and Gianni Zuiverloon sealed matters with third late on.

It could even have been four for the Baggies had Dorrans not seen a second penalty saved by Iron keeper Joe Murphy.

606: DEBATE

That was given after David Mirfin had brought down Luke Moore - an incident that led to McCann's dismissal as he showed his disgust to the referee.

An incident packed game also saw a Moore header ruled out for offside, but Baggies boss Roberto di Matteo will be happy enough with three points that keeps his side in the automatic promotion places above Nottingham Forest.

He will also be aware things could have been different had Scunthorpe not shot themselves in the foot with two needless sendings off.

The first, in particular, came at a time when the home team were resurgent, and it was not until Zuiverloon slid home from Chris Brunt's pass that West Brom looked confident of securing a win they just about deserved.


Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins:
"I know the referee does not have access to technology when he is making his decisions.

"But I have looked at both penalties on the DVD, the first was a good challenge and with the second both players made contact with the ball at the same time.

"We also had a player sent off on Boxing Day at Middlesbrough and these decisions are very disappointing.

"I will be going in to see the referee because he has sent one of my players off for using foul and abusive language.

"But I will be wanting to talk to him about the manner in which he has spoken to some of my players during the game."

West Brom manager manager Roberto di Matteo:
That's six points out of six from the two Christmas games and just what we wanted to keep up the pressure at the top of the table.

"I thought we were in control for most of this game. We might have been more than one goal in front by the interval and it was disappointing to see Scunthorpe come back on level terms from a set-piece situation.

"As far as the two penalties are concerned, I did not really get a good view of the first decision but the second looked a clear penalty to me.

"My players had to be careful to keep their discipline because the home crowd were trying to influence the decisions of the referee."
