Scunthorpe United 2-5 Manchester United (Carling Cup) – Match Highlights

Carling Cup holders Manchester United did not let absent boss Sir Alex Ferguson down as they came from behind to beat gallant Scunthorpe in Wednesday night’s third-round tie at Glanford Park.

Ferguson chose to watch Champions League opponents Valencia instead, leaving Mike Phelan in charge, and there was plenty for the assistant manager to think about as Scunthorpe were rewarded for their terrific start by Josh Wright’s superb 19th-minute strike.

But it took only four minutes for Darron Gibson to level and they were ahead before half-time through Chris Smalling.

Two goals from Michael Owen and one from Park Ji-sung in the second half put the result beyond doubt but Scunthorpe got the second goal they deserved in injury time from the impressive Martyn Woolford.
