Scunthorpe   1 - 4   Leeds United

Scunthorpe 1-4 Leeds

Scunthorpe 1-4 Leeds

Leeds captain Jonny Howson scored a 15-minute hat-trick to help his side claim a commanding victory at Scunthorpe.

The visitors took the lead when Max Gradel drilled a low finish across Tony Warner after a neat ball from Howson.

Scunthorpe hit back as Cliff Byrne rose highest at the back post to bury a header beyond Kapser Schmeichel.

But Leeds rallied after the break and Howson crashed home a Paul Conolly cross, nodded in after a Gradel centre and then slotted a fourth.

One of just three starting survivors from Leeds last visit to Glanford Park in August 2008, Howson scored with his right foot, his left foot and his head as Simon Grayson's men returned to form after a run of one win in five.

Grayson made three changes to the side that were thrashed 4-0 by Cardiff on Monday, and it paid dividends as Scunthorpe were dispatched, meaning their wait to beat Leeds will go into a 50th year.

606: DEBATE
forever a white

Cardiff's first goal in that win came after a collision between Schmeichel and Alex Bruce, and the duo almost shipped another goal in identical circumstances after two minutes, only for debutant O'Brien to clear off the line from Chris Dagnall.

Leeds made the most of their let-off and took the lead after eight minutes through Gradel's first of the season, but Scunthorpe managed to build enough pressure to equalise.

Good work from loanee Freddie Sears earned them a corner and from O'Connor's ball in, Byrne swooped to beat Schmeichel. Despite Leeds' protests, the goal stood.

Warner, a former Leeds keeper, tipped an Amdy Faye header away moments before half-time and, after the break, Leeds' Neil Kilkenny drove over the bar.

The visitors' pressure eventually told when Connolly's cross made its way through the area to the back post, where Howson was waiting to convert his third of the season.

At the other end, Schmeichel had to tip a Sears drive over the bar, but Leeds were in total command by this point and Howson underlined that with his second, a back-post header after a Gradel cross.

The points were secured when Luciano Becchio played Howson through on goal and he coolly completed a maiden career treble.
