Gary Hooper gave the Iron a dream start after just five minutes before a Paul Hayes penalty handed them a comfortable and deserved 2-0 lead at the break.

Matt Sparrow made it three just after the restart before Millwall rallied in impressive fashion to set up a nervy finish with goals from Neil Harris and Tony Craig.

The Iron started the encounter in determined fashion and Hooper put them in front early on, collecting a pin-point throughball from Hayes before firing neatly past David Forde from the edge of the penalty area.

Hayes netted a crucial second from the penalty spot after 16 minutes following Zak Whitbread's handball before Sparrow made it 3-0 from 12 yards after 51 minutes.

Half-time substitute Harris half-volleyed home to bring the Lions back into contention shortly after, before Craig prodded a goalmouth scramble into the net in the 69th minute to give Millwall hope, but Scunthorpe held on for the three points.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
