Scunthorpe   2 - 1   Plymouth

Scunthorpe United v Plymouth Argyle

Scunthorpe 2-1 Plymouth

A deflected Martyn Woolford shot saw Scunthorpe clinch three valuable points against fellow strugglers Plymouth to move out of the relegation zone.

Jamie Mackie put the visitors ahead against the run of play with a tap-in after a surging run by Yannick Bolasie.

Garry Thompson soon levelled with a sweeping shot after Paul Hayes had chased the ball down on the right.

And Woolford clinched it in the second-half when his shot from the right was deflected beyond David Stockdale.


Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins:

"This was a victory we badly needed and I think we thoroughly deserved.

"There has always been total belief in our dressing room that we can succeed this season.

"There was a nervousness out there which I am sure there will be from now until the end of the season.

"But our home form has been good all season and this is where we can achieve what we expect to achieve this season."

Plymouth manager Paul Mariner told BBC Radio Devon:

"I thought we played well. The first thirty minutes, I thought we came out firing.

"We stressed that Scunthorpe are bright when the ball goes dead and we had to be alive. It was a very poor goal."
