Scunthorpe   3 - 0   Crystal Palace

Scunthorpe 3-0 Crystal Palace

Scunthorpe 3-0 Crystal Palace

Jonathan Forte's first-half double set Scunthorpe on their way to a comprehensive win over Crystal Palace.

Forte fired The Iron ahead from 12 yards following a cross by Cliff Byrne, and he doubled his tally with a sweet 18-yard volley into the bottom corner.

Michael O'Connor's second-half penalty, which came after a Nathaniel Clyne foul on Forte, sealed the home side's win.

Not even the presence of Edgar Davids, who was making his league debut, could inspire lacklustre Palace.

Forte's first league goals of the season effectively settled the match by half-time and O'Connor's second-half penalty ensured a first home win of the season for Nigel Adkins' men.

Palace were second best throughout, although both sides went close to scoring during a lively opening at Glanford Park.

Eagles midfielder Kieran Djilali drilled a left-footed shot wide from 12 yards after just two minutes

And four minutes later the hosts went close when midfielder Michael Collins collected possession 20 yards from goal and drilled a fierce shot which Eagles centre-back Claude Davis did well to block.

Collins then saw a decent right-footed shot from 12 yards draw a fine parried save from Julian Speroni, and after another fine Speroni stop from Chris Dagnall, Scunthorpe went ahead through Forte's calm finish.

The striker's second arrived on the stroke of half-time when he volleyed home right-footed from the edge of the box.

Jonathan Obika did have two opportunities to get Palace back into the match but he volleyed wide from 12 yards and then sent a header over the bar.

At the other end Forte could have claimed a hat-trick but Speroni showed great reactions to keep his effort out.

The third goal arrived from the penalty spot, O'Connor stepping up to fire a right-footed shot into the top left-hand corner.
