Former County man Karl Hawley proved the villain for Scunthorpe after missing a host of guilt-edge chances for the Iron in the second half which ultimately cost his side dearly.

Defender Dean Leacock - back after a two-game ban - stroked in the winner in the 81st minute for County and kept them in touch with the race for the playoffs.

Kiwomya said his side responded well after their below-par performance in losing to Preston at home on Tuesday night.

He said: "I always thought that whoever got the first goal would win the game. It was a lot better than Tuesday. We were a lot more committed and knew what we wanted to do and created a lot more chances than against Preston.

"On Tuesday night we all got a lot of stick and rightly so. If you don't perform to the standards we have set ourselves we will come in for a bit of stick.

"We have to take that criticism and turn it into a positive and we did today. Playing 4-4-2 you will leave yourself a bit open and we did at times but at this stage of the season you need the wins."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
