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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
