United 2-0 Morecambe

Two goals from veteran striker Deon Burton gave Scunthorpe a comfortable win over Morecambe.

The 37-year-old opened the scoring when he tapped in Christian Ribeiro’s low right-wing cross at the far post.

Burton then got his fourth goal of the season as he turned on the edge of the box and drilled a left-footed shot into the bottom corner.

David Syers and Burton could have extended the lead as Morecambe failed to create any clear cut chances.

The result saw Scunthorpe stretch their unbeaten run under caretaker boss Russ Wilcox to five games.

“For me it was our best 90 minutes for lots of reasons. Every game is a pressure game, but I looked at today and thought we needed to win this game.”

“It was probably the best start we’ve had to any game this season, we just needed to score when we were on top.  They just had a little bit too much quality.”
