Canaries flying ~after Iron win


The striker was sent on by manager Glenn Roeder in the 62nd minute of a well-balanced clash and it took him just 16 minutes to make a difference, when he slotted home Jon Otsemobor’s 78th-minute cross for his seventh goal of the campaign.

The Canaries rode their luck at times throughout the game, with keeper David Marshall making a string of fine saves.

The win means Norwich climb above their hosts in the table and have now gone four games without defeat.

Unfortunately for Scunthorpe and their manager Nigel Adkins, this was the latest in a succession of games where they have played well but ended up empty-handed. They have now gone 11 games without a victory and have not won at home in nine.
