Scunthorpe 3-0 Cheltenham

Paul Hayes
Hayes opened the scoring for Scunthorpe in the 36th minute

Scunthorpe eased to victory against already-relegated Cheltenham to move into the last League One play-off spot.

The Iron, who must avoid defeat against Tranmere on Saturday to confirm their play-off spot, went ahead when Paul Hayes netted from close-range.

Skipper Cliff Byrne drilled in to double the lead and Henri Lansbury skipped inside and drove in a third.

The game ended on a sour note when Yuri Berchiche's challenge left Lansbury with a suspected broken leg.
