Norwich   6 - 0   Scunthorpe

Norwich v Scunthorpe highlights

Norwich 6-0 Scunthorpe

Hat-tricks from Grant Holt and Simeon Jackson heaped further woe on 10-man Championship strugglers Scunthorpe as Norwich ran out stylish winners.

Daniel Pacheco set up Holt for a close-range opener on 10 minutes.

The Norwich striker claimed a second goal from the spot after he was brought down by Paul Reid, who was dismissed for a professional foul.

Holt headed home Andrew Crofts' centre before substitute Jackson scored a late hat-trick to complete the rout.

The Canaries' resounding win maintains their grip on the second automatic promotion spot, moving them to within six points of leaders QPR and continuing the rich run of form that has seen them lose just once in 18 Championship outings since the turn of the year.

For Scunthorpe, meanwhile, who are on course for a return to League One after a ninth consecutive league defeat that equals a 38-year-old club record, it was a miserable start to life under new manager Alan Knill.

The Iron have now lost 13 of their 18 league games in 2011, failing to score in 12 of them - including the last four.

Norwich handed a debut to Pacheco, the young forward on loan from Liverpool, and were quickly rewarded when the Spaniard cut the ball back for Holt to slot home an early opener at the near post.

Wes Hoolahan threatened to double the Canaries' advantage before Holt was brought down by Reid and shown a straight red card.

The frontman stepped up to send Scunthorpe keeper Joe Murphy the wrong way from the penalty spot and claim his 50th Norwich goal.

Hoolahan rattled the woodwork on the hour as the home side maintained the pressure but it was Holt who made it three moments later, heading back across Murphy to complete his treble.

After Grant and Hoolahan had left the field to rapturous applause, Jackson came on for Pacheco and added to the home side's lead inside five minutes.

Jackson robbed defender Michael Raynes and calmly slotted home his first goal in 21 games.

Two minutes later, he added a second with a neat near-post finish after good work from Henri Lansbury.

Norwich keeper John Ruddy was finally called into action in the 89th minute as he tipped over a shot from Michael O'Connor, while there was still time for Jackson to complete his hat-trick with a clever close-range finish.
