Graham Cummins will feel he could have contributed more as his Preston side played out a low quality goalless draw with Scunthorpe.

Cummins had a great opportunity to put North End in front in the first half but his close-range header was pushed away by Iron goalkeeper Sam Slocombe.

He then headed over, while Andy Barcham was denied by Thorsten Stuckmann at the other end.

Preston sit in 14th place, three points above the Iron.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Scunthorpe United manager Alan Knill told BBC Radio Humberside:

"I thought it was a draw, probably both teams will be upset that they've not won it but I didn't think either team did enough to win it.

"In the end it's a good point for us and a clean sheet.

"We've huffed and puffed and they looked dangerous from set-plays. A draw was fair enough."
