Scunthorpe 2-1 Rochdale

Two goals by midfielder Wayne Graves boosted Scunthorpe's promotion push as they won at home to fellow high-flyers Rochdale.

The Dale started brightly and took a 10th-minute lead when Kevin Townson squared the ball into the middle for Steve Jones to tuck it home.

But Graves hit an equaliser for Scunthorpe in the 27th minute from the edge of the area - and 11 minutes later slammed home what proved the winner.

Rochdale goalkeeper Steve Banks produced a fine full-length save to deny Steve Torpey in the second half.

At the other end Scunthorpe's Tom Evans flung himself brilliantly to his left to deny Townson - and ensure all the points for the Iron.

The day ended on a poor note for Graves, who was stretchered off.


Scunthorpe: Evans, Stanton, Jackson, McGibbon, Dawson, Graves, Sparrow, Calvo-Garcia, Beagrie, Torpey, Quailey. Subs: Dudley, Hodges, Cotterill, Bradshaw, Bennion.

Rochdale: Banks, Evans, Jobson, Griffiths, Todd, Jones, Flitcroft, McLoughlin, Doughty, Townson, Platt. Subs: Gilks, Coleman, Duffy, McCourt, Atkinson.

Referee: P Walton (Northants).
