Fleetwood Town 2-2 Scunthorpe United

Fleetwood twice relinquished a lead to draw with fellow League One mid-table team Scunthorpe United.

Jamie Proctor had given the home side an early lead, powering in a header from Nick Haughton's free-kick.

But Gary McSheffrey converted Isaiah Osborne's well-timed pass to level moments before the break.

Josh Morris curled in from the edge of the area to put the hosts back in front, only for George Evans' shot to deflect in for the equaliser.

Scunthorpe United manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Humberside:

"We're disappointed because we played really well. They were really difficult conditions and we were more than a match for them.

Robins on Fleetwood v Scunthorpe

"We went a goal down again giving them a real soft goal. Having said that it wasn't a free-kick in the first place. Then they put the ball under the crossbar and the blustery conditions moved the ball around and they end up getting a really good start to the game.

"We deserved to get back into it. We really looked like we were going to get back into it. I'm pleased with our lads, they've done well. I'm disappointed not to get the three points but I've got to take the point."
