Steady: Scunthorpe 1-1 City

It's a long way to Scunthorpe on a dull, wet and cold day, and not much to look at when you get there (I went once) - so I'm glad I didn't go.

City and the inevitable travelling faithful did though, but were behind after 11 minutes.

Scunnie seemed to have the better of the opening period, and City came out with more intent after the break. Eventually, City were rewarded when a Peter Whittingham shot deflected past the keeper, but we don't care, we'll take anything.

After conceding a load of late goals recently, things must have been tense in the last few minutes, and Scunthorpe had shouts for a late penalty turned down.

So a battling point gained, rather than two lost, but City must start picking up the pace again if they're to be serious play off/promotion contenders come the end of the season.
