Scunthorpe   0 - 2   Bristol City

Scunthorpe 0-2 Bristol City

Scunthorpe 0-2 Bristol City

Albert Adomah and David Clarkson were on target as Bristol City climbed out of the relegation zone with their first victory of the season.

Scunthorpe, whose manager Nigel Adkins has held talks with Southampton over their managerial vacancy, saw Sam Togwell and Michael O'Connor go close.

But City went ahead after a fine Brett Pitman pass found Adomah and he fired into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

Deep in added time Clarkson collected Jon Stead's pass and rifled home.

The visitors were indebted to former England keeper David James who tipped Togwell's 25-yard volley round the post, and kept out a long-range effort from Michael Collins.

Cliff Byrne saw a sweetly struck effort blocked by Robins defender Liam Fontaine, while at the other end Stead crossed for Pitman to fire straight at Joe Murphy from 12 yards, before City settled the contest.
