Burnley   0 - 2   Scunthorpe

Burnley 0-2 Scunthorpe

Burnley 0-2 Scunthorpe

Struggling Scunthorpe claimed a deserved victory over play-off chasing Burnley with goals from Martyn Woolford and Chris Dagnall.

Woolford, 25, struck in the 14th minute with a clinical left-footed finish for his seventh goal of the season.

Burnley almost equalised when Jay Rodriguez headed over Ross Wallace's cross from only six yards out.

But Woodford then set up Dagnall to claim the second with six minutes remaining, rifling in from six yards.

Burnley manager Brian Laws came under heavy fire from Burnley supporters after the game.

But it had been the home side who had started brightest, striker Rodriguez heading just wide in the third minute.

However, Scunthorpe soon gained control and forward Jonathan Forte drilled a 20-yard shot narrowly over the bar.

Two minutes later Woolford also went close from distance before Michael O'Connor had a 20-yard shot well parried by home goalkeeper Lee Grant.

But the Iron were not to be denied and they found the net in the 14th minute when Woolford swept home a fine left-footed shot from 12 yards.

Midway through the first half, Burnley sought to find an equaliser but Rodriguez headed wastefully wide from 12 yards out.

The pendulum swung back in the visitors' favour moments later as Andrew Wright saw his 25-yard shot blocked.

Forte almost doubled the lead when he struck from 12 yards but Grant made a fine parried save to avert the danger.

Scunthorpe finally sealed the points when Woolford showed intelligence to find Dagnall and he slotted home from six yards.
