The Iron took the lead after 25 minutes as Gary Thompson's incisive cross from the by-line found Sam Togwell who tapped home from close range.

Yeovil's troubles worsened when skipper Terry Skiverton was sent off for an off-the-ball elbowing offence in the 34th minute and they fell further behind moments before the interval.

Iron striker Gary Hooper chased a route-one ball from the back and planted it low past the left hand of keeper Josh Wagenaar right on half-time.

Scunthorpe were content to knock the ball around in the second half but the Glovers gave them a brief fright in stoppage time when Andre McCollin headed home a right-wing corner.

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...
