Chesterfield 0-3 Scunthorpe United – League 1


Paddy McFadden scored twice as Scunthorpe United defeated ten-man Chesterfield 3-0 at the Proact Stadium.

The division’s top scorer opened the scoring from the spot just shy of the hour mark after Dan Jones had fouled ex-Spireite Gary McSheffrey.

The defender was shown a straight-red card for the tackle and this proved to be the turning point in what had previously been a very even contest.

McSheffrey doubled the lead against his former club with a superb first time strike before Madden put the icing on the Iron’s cake, making it 3-0 twelve minutes from time.
