Scunthorpe United boss Nigel Adkins has warned his players to keep their eye on the prize after a 1-0 home win over Yeovil Town edged the Iron closer to promotion from League One. A Nathan Jones own goal proved decisive at Glanford Park on Friday evening, with Adkins feeling his side had deserved the three points. He told the Evening Telegraph: "There are still five rounds left and we will keep jabbing away, but we might have landed a good right hook. "It's a massive win. The players were magnificent. They work so hard as a team, from the front to the back. "We kept another clean sheet and it was an entertaining game. I think the supporters got their money's worth. "There were a lot of chances and we could have scored more. We deserved to win."
