Sheff Utd 0-2 Scunthorpe- Match Report

Last updated : 08 May 2016

Iron blunt Blades but miss out on play-off place

Scunthorpe's 2-0 win at Sheffield United was not enough to see them secure a Sky Bet League One play-off spot, following Barnsley's victory over Wigan.

The home side made the early running with David Edgar having a header touched wide by keeper Luke Daniels and Chris Basham seeing his shot blocked.

After Scunthorpe's Luke Williams had a long-range shot easily saved by George Long, the hosts continued to press with Alex Baptise's effort blocked and Billy Sharp putting a low shot only just wide following a one-two with Che Adams.

But it was Scunthorpe who opened the scoring when Hakeeb Adelakun slipped the ball through to Paddy Madden, whose shot was parried by Long and Tom Hopper followed up to fire into the net in the 39th minute.

Adelakun then had a long-range shot saved by Long in the closing stages of the half.

Sharp had a low shot from distance saved by Daniels before, in the 64th minute, Madden added a second with a deflected 20-yard effort.
