Manager's thoughts after the 2-1 win away to Scunthorpe
Paul Hurst’s men came from behind to beat Scunthorpe United away from home at a snowy and cold Glanford Park. Goals from Jon Nolan and Stefan Payne gave Town all three points and towns fifth consecutive win on the road.
Hurst was pleased how his side battled back from a goal behind to get the win, he said: “This feels like a big win, I'm really pleased with the players.
“Second half, I thought we had more of a threat, first half we had some of the ball but didn’t carry enough threat.
“They got in a couple of times, but second half I thought we were well in the ascendancy.
“I know their home form hasn’t been what they’d like, but to still come here and win, coming from a goal behind and the challenge of the conditions, for both teams. It was an excellent day for us.”
Hurst was also pleased at how his side dealt with the tough conditions and praised the fans for their support: “I asked before the game what the chances of it being abandoned are, what happens if we get to a certain time and all that.
“I think at half time there was some concern, but thankfully we finished it just in time. It was getting heavier and the pitch was getting really covered and thankfully we got it finished.
“I’m really pleased for the supporters, they’ve risked travelling and hopefully they all get back safe and sound, another good weekend for us.”
Hurst was also very pleased with Jon Nolan’s equaliser: “I didn’t say anything to Jon but he was due a goal, certainly a bit of quality when he played it into Carlton.
“He followed his pass and a good bit of skill from Carlton and an excellent finish, it was a goal which would grace any game.”
