Scunthorpe   0 - 0   Derby

Scunthorpe v Derby

Scunthorpe 0-0 Derby

Struggling Scunthorpe closed the gap on Sheffield United to only one point ahead of their meeting on Tuesday after holding Derby to a goalless draw.

Lee Miller's shot and Michael Nelson's header drew good saves from visiting keeper Stephen Bywater early on.

The first decent chance by the visitors fell to Jamie Ward but he shot wide.

Derby's Paul Green had a goal ruled out for offside early in the second half and Scunthorpe's Abdisalam Ibrahim suffered a similar fate near the end.

The home side will have had their hopes raised by their surprise midweek win over high-flying Nottingham Forest but a poor playing service did little to encourage either side to produce fluent football.

After their early chances, Scunthorpe thought their luck might be in when Andy Hughes went down under a challenge from Gareth Roberts but their penalty claims were waved away by referee Scott Mathieson.

Derby came into the match on a run of six league games without a win and their lack of confidence was clear for all to see - debutant Ward should have done better when he put his first-half chance wide.

Less than two minutes after the restart, the Rams thought their luck had changed, only for Green's celebrations to be curtailed by an offside flag.

But this near miss inspired the visitors to be more adventurous, with Republic of Ireland midfielder Green trying his luck from distance.

Mark Duffy went close for the home side and Derby's on-loan debutant Daniel Ayala found himself in the firing line when he blocked a stinging Michael Collins effort.

Six minutes from time Iron substitute Ibrahim had the home fans on their feet but, like Green earlier, his effort was flagged offside and it was no surprise when the game finished goalless.
