Scunthorpe held in Walsall stalemate

Promotion-chasing Scunthorpe saw their winless run extended to three games as they played out a scrappy goalless draw at home to Walsall.

While neither side lacked endeavour, there was a notable absence of clear-cut chances at both ends of the field, though Scunthorpe's Luke Daniels was undoubtedly the busier of the two goalkeepers.

Twice he denied Simeon Jackson from inside the box before, in the 68th minute, he pushed a shot from Joe Edwards onto the bar after the Saddlers wing-back had caught Levi Sutton in possession.

Daniels also came to the Iron's rescue in the closing stages after the lively Erhun Oztumer opted to have a go at goal from 30 yards.

At the other end of the field, Scunthorpe struggled for ideas and a spark in the final third as they failed to score for only the fifth time this term.

Full-back Harry Toffolo had probably their best effort of the game six minutes before the break. The fact it was straight at Walsall stopper Neil Etheridge just about summed up their night.
