Scunthorpe   3 - 0   Bristol City

Scunthorpe 3-0 Bristol City

Scunthorpe 3-0 Bristol City

Gary Hooper scored a hat-trick to help dominant Scunthorpe beat Bristol City which boosted the Iron's hopes of staying in the Championship.

The 22-year-old scored his 14th league goal of the campaign when he forced the ball over the line from close range.

Ten minutes into the second half Hooper's brilliant turn and shot doubled Scunthorpe's advantage.

Hooper secured the victory and his treble when he rounded keeper Stephen Henderson and slotted in.


Scunthorpe manager Nigel Adkins:
"Excellent result, excellent performance, great credit to the players.

"They showed magnificent spirit. When the team are together, everybody achieves more. I thought we dominated.

"We're so near, yet so far (to safety). We still need points and we know what we've got to do."

Bristol City caretaker manager Keith Millen:
"If you look at our goals against record this year, that's probably what has cost us.

"We knew at 1-0 the next goal was vital, if we'd got that we could have gone on and won the game.

"If you look at their three goals they didn't have to do too much for them, which is disappointing."
