Sam Winnall's second half strike, which took a huge deflection on its way into the back of the net, secured a smash-and-grab victory over Graham Alexander's men, who suffered a second consecutive defeat.

Iron boss Laws was delighted to see a return to winning ways after their 4-0 weekend capitulation at the hands of Exeter.

"We could have felt sorry for ourselves after Saturday's performance but we didn't," said Laws.

"It's all about bouncing back and playing with honesty.

"It was a tough game but I think tactically we got it right.

"After the break we controlled the game for larger periods. We started to pass it nicely and that brought us a chance for us to get a shot on goal.

"It took a big deflection on the way but it gave us something to hold on to."
