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

Connor Jennings.

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.
