Glovers give Iron what four
It was a second successive away win for the impressive Glovers,
leaving struggling Scunthorpe anchored at the foot of the League
One table without a point from their opening three games.
Yeovil made the breakthrough after 37 minutes when Keanu
Marsh-Brown was left unmarked to run into the box down the left and
drill in a low shot which beat Sam Slocombe at his near post.
And the visitors took a firm grip on the game five minutes into
the second half with a move which sliced through the heart of the
home defence for striker Reuben Reid to make it 2-0 with his first
goal of the season from close range.
Scunthorpe were denied three times by good saves from ‘keeper
Marek Stech as they tried to get back into the game, keeping out
well-struck efforts from Bobby Grant, Mark Duffy and substitute
But substitute Gozie Ugwu had the final say for Yeovil, striking
twice in the closing minutes with the home side collapsing
defensively as a rain storm descended on Glanford Park. First Ugwu
tapped home from close range after Scunthorpe had lost possession
in their own box, then, in stoppage time, he rounded ‘keeper Sam
Slocombe for a fine solo effort.
