Bristol City   2 - 0   Scunthorpe

Highlights - Bristol City 2-0 Scunthorpe

Bristol City 2-0 Scunthorpe

Goals from David Clarkson and Nicky Maynard sealed a deserved victory for Bristol City against Championship strugglers Scunthorpe at Ashton Gate.

The hosts took the lead in the 13th minute when Clarkson's inswinging cross found the net.

Maynard then struck after the interval from Martyn Woolford's corner to wrap up the points.

Ben Gordon spurned Scunthorpe's best chance of the afternoon when his strike from 12 yards went inches wide.

Keith Millen's side move 10 points clear of the Championship relegation zone, while Scunthorpe are left five points adrift of safety.

Both City and the Iron were unchanged from midweek victories over Watford and Sheffield United, respectively.

After an opening in which neither side could impose themselves on the game, City ended their four-game goal drought at Ashton Gate in fortuitous circumstances.

Clarkson's curling left-wing cross evaded everyone in the area before the ball went in off the far post for City's first home goal since the 3-0 victory over Cardiff City on New Year's Day.

The hosts continued to push forward but, despite their dominance, they failed to fashion any meaningful opportunities, although the impressive Clarkson's ferocious 25-yard strike was magnificently beaten away by Scunthorpe keeper Josh Lillis.

The Iron had taken seven points from their last available nine - including coming back from two goals down to beat Sheffield United on Tuesday - so their poor first-half showing was unlikely to have impressed manager Ian Baraclough.

His mood was not improved when Maynard doubled Bristol City's advantage four minutes after the interval.

Former Scunthorpe midfielder Woolford's bobbling corner was guided home by Maynard for his second goal in as many games.

The striker, making only his second start of the season since returning from a serious knee injury, was then put through on goal but after rounding Lillis, he could only fire over.

Abdisalam Ibrahim had Scunthorpe's first effort on target from just outside the area but the strike was comfortably caught by City goalkeeper David James.

Clarkson was denied by Lillis before Scunthorpe were, once again, almost undone by a City set-piece.

Liam Fontaine's flick-on from Woolford's corner was hacked off the line by Scunthorpe defender Gordon.

At the other end Gordon then wasted his side's best chance of the afternoon and the home side cruised home to victory.
