Matt Taylor says he is pleased to get the win after his side picked up a 3-1 victory against a depleted Scunthorpe United side at SJP.

With COVID-19 cases throughout the Irons squad, they were forced to be without manager Neil Cox on the sidelines as well as their assistant manager and two senior players, and Taylor was full of praise for the opponents.

"Full credit to Scunthorpe. We made life difficult for ourselves but it was a strange type of game," he said.

"I thought they were outstanding from to finish. They've got difficulties on and off the field at the moment. They showed a real character and personality about themselves."

The game was marred by an early injury to Lewis Page midway through the first half and a second half injury to goalkeeper Lewis Ward, who was able to carry on through the pain. 

"Lewis [Ward] got through the game but it looks like a nasty ankle injury so we'll have to bring someone in for Tuesday. I was all ready and set to bring on our 15-year-old sub keeper [Harry Lee]."

"It's Lewis' [Page] hamstring. It's sods law. You rest him on Tuesday night and he picks up an injury the following match. He's had a history of it, but hopefully it's not a bad one."
