Match Preview

Iron duo sit out City clash Scunthorpe are without Garry Thompson and Jim McNulty for the home clash with Bristol City. Winger Thompson remains sidelined after being ruled out for up to two months due to a groin injury. On-loan Brighton left-back McNulty sustained an ankle injury in the recent 2-0 defeat at QPR and was originally ruled out for three to four weeks. The injury has healed quicker than expected but this weekend looks almost certain to come too soon for the former Stockport man. The Iron have no other concerns as they bid to claim their third win from five matches. Danny Rose`s City debut has been put on hold due to an injury sustained while on international duty. The on-loan Tottenham winger, signed on Thursday, will miss the trip as he recovers from an ankle problem picked up while playing for England Under-21s. He is likely to feature against Watford on Tuesday. Striker Danny Haynes and defender Lewin Nyatanga are close to making first-team returns but are lacking match sharpness and unlikely to make the clash at Glanford Park. But, otherwise, manager Keith Millen has as close to a fully-fit squad as he has had all season. Captain Louis Carey (heel) is likely to return to the centre of defence while midfielder Cole Skuse (knee) is back in the fold having missed the 2-0 defeat at Ipswich last time out.

Match Report

Robins take flight Albert Adomah and David Clarkson breathed new life into Bristol City's campaign in what may prove to be Nigel Adkins' last game in charge of Scunthorpe. Winger Adomah struck in the 16th minute and substitute Clarkson fired home in the closing stages to wrap up a 2-0 win, the Robins' first of the season and a result that lifted them out of the relegation zone. Whether or not it was Adkins' final game at the Glanford Park helm remains to be seen as he has held talks with Southampton over the vacant managerial position at St Mary's. The Iron were unchanged from the side which beat Crystal Palace on home soil a fortnight earlier. Midfielder Cole Skuse was recalled to City's starting line-up after a knee injury and replaced Ivan Sproule on the left-hand side of midfield. Scunthorpe began the brighter and could have led inside the sixth minute when Jonathan Forte crossed dangerously and Sam Togwell connected with a superb 25-yard volley which David James tipped around a post. In the 15th minute, the Iron went close again as midfielder Michael O'Connor curled a delightful shot goalwards from 25 yards but the ball narrowly missed the target. Yet two minutes later City led when Brett Pitman collected possession and provided a fine pass to Adomah, who rifled a right-footed shot into the bottom corner from 12 yards. Scunthorpe were dealt a blow soon after when defender Rob Jones succumbed to injury and was replaced by Niall Canavan. In the 25th minute, Eddie Nolan crossed dangerously but Damion Stewart produced a fine clearance. Moments later Jon Stead hit a fine shot from 30 yards which David Mirfin did well to block. Yet the Iron continued to probe and were almost rewarded in the 33rd minute when Collins had a fine long-range effort saved by James. Two minutes later, Pitman fired wide when he should have done better. Stead then had another effort blocked by Mirfin and Marvin Elliott headed a cross from Nicky Hunt straight at home goalkeeper Joe Murphy. Four minutes after the restart, Chris Dagnall mishit a long-range shot and team-mate Josh Wright fired over from 25 yards. In the 54th minute, Sproule replaced Adomah and Collins then had an effort saved by James. Three minutes later, Wright crossed dangerously and Cliff Byrne connected sweetly only for his effort to be blocked by Liam Fontaine. In the 62nd minute, Stead crossed for Pitman to fire straight at Murphy from 12 yards. Chances continued to come and go but Scunthorpe could not find a way through as City held firm. They claimed their second goal in the fifth minute of added time when he collected a pass from Stead and rifled home from 12 yards.
