Luke Murphy scored the visitors' second-half winner, leaving the Iron bottom of the league table following Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Crawley.

Knill's men host Yeovil at the weekend and despite the positives, their manager feels the need to get three points.

He said: "I am bitterly disappointed that we didn't get anything out of this game but I thought we gave it a good go from start to finish.

"We have what we have as a squad and if people are going to expect miracles from us straight away, they are going to be disappointed. But we have a young team here who want to learn and we will get better, I know we will.

"But I know it is all about winning games of football and we have not done that. The sooner the players understand that the better."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
