Lions end Iron hoodoo

James Henry and Steve Morison ended Millwall's hoodoo against Scunthorpe and moved them into the top half of the npower Championship with a 3-0 win.The Iron had got the better of the Lions in their previous five meetings, including an epic 2009 League One play-off final. But the south Londoners got their own back in style thanks to Henry's first-half cracker and Morison's late double to make it an unhappy 40th birthday for Scunny manager Ian Baraclough.In the 23rd minute Henry unleashed a low drive from 25 yards which zipped past Joe Murphy and into the corner of the net for the winger's first goal in more than a year.Scunthorpe could have hit back moments later when Rob Jones met a cross from Eddie Nolan but the defender put his header wide.But the visitors rarely threatened and with nine minutes remaining Morison charged into the area, jinked past Jones and toe-poked the ball past Murphy from the tightest of angles for number two.And Morison took his tally for the season to 10 when he lashed a half-clearance back past Murphy from the edge of the box to wrap up the win.
