Scunthorpe   1 - 2   Crystal Palace

Scunthorpe 1-2 Crystal Palace

Scunthorpe 1-2 Crystal Palace

Neil Danns scored in injury time to give troubled Crystal Palace victory over 10-man Scunthorpe.

Darren Ambrose had put Palace ahead from a well-worked corner, before the Iron had Marcus Williams sent off for a professional foul on Kieran Djilali.

Scunthorpe, who had most of the early chances, looked like they had earned a point when David Mirfin headed home from a corner with six minutes left.

But Danns drove home from the edge of the area to give Palace the points.


Scunthorpe boss Nigel Adkins:
"It was disappointing to have a player sent off and we shall be looking to see if we can appeal.

"This is only the third game in 11 we have been beaten and each time it has come after we have had a man sent off.

"Having said that, we had chances early in the game that we should have taken - it should have been beyond reach for Palace by half-time."

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock on his side's third victory since the club went into administration:

"This business has drawn us all closer together, both players and supporters. These players just do not know when they are beaten.

"It was disappointing that we let Scunthorpe come back on level terms after going down to 10 men but Neil Danns has come up with a last-gasp winner and it's a terrific result for us."
