Derby   3 - 2   Scunthorpe

Derby 3-2 Scunthorpe

Derby 3-2 Scunthorpe

In-form Derby County earned a record sixth successive victory at Pride Park.

Tomasz Cywka put the home side ahead, collecting Alberto Bueno's pass on the edge of the box and firing in.

Jonathan Forte showed great strength to level from 12 yards but Kris Commons restored the lead from the spot after Bueno was fouled by Michael O'Connor.

Luke Moore's 18-yard strike made it 3-1 and although Gareth Roberts saw red for a second caution and O'Connor's penalty made it 3-2, the Rams held on.

It was a slightly nervy final 15 minutes for Nigel Clough's men but they showed plenty of defensive quality to back up the free-flowing football.

Despite their man advantage, Scunthorpe barely threatened late on with substitutes Trent McClenahan and Garry Thompson both missing the target and Josh Wright shooting over from long range.

The margin of victory had looked like being greater until Roberts saw red for a second caution on 75 minutes.

Cywka's sweetly-struck opener when Bueno slid the ball inside from the right and the Pole drove a shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box put the Rams on their way.

And they almost doubled their lead after eight minutes but visiting keeper Joe Murphy tipped a long-range Commons shot around the post.

Scunthorpe almost equalised when Rob Jones' header from O'Connor's cross struck a post but Forte did make it 1-1 when he latched on to O'Connor's pass and beat Frank Fielding from 12 yards.

But the game's main talking point was the controversial penalty won by Bueno when the Spaniard did well to force his way into the area, and then appeared to go down very easily.

Scunthorpe complained, but to no avail, and Commons smashed home the spot-kick.

Luke Moore then seemed to have wrapped up all three points just before the hour mark, when he shot into the top corner after a fine pass from Cywka.

But when Roberts was sent off for bringing down Freddie Sears, O'Connor converted the penalty and the Rams were made to sweat for their win.
