Knill: Sometimes you have to credit the opposition

Scunthorpe had their chances in the first half, and went into the break one-up, but eventually suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Tranmere on Tuesday night.

Alan Knill, as he told BBC Radio Humberside, praised his sides first half showing but also felt he had to offer credit to Tranmere too: 'We were excellent in the first half and pretty poor in the second. We're saying the same things, two set-pieces have really changed the game around and sometimes you have to give the opposition credit, they played better in the second half.

'It's the set-plays that cost us and it was on Saturday. All you do is ask someone to put their head in before the opposition and at the moment we're not doing that. Until you do that you're never going to keep a clean sheet.

'We went from back to front quicker than what we usually do or we try to and in the end you give the ball back to the opposition and they've got some good players.'
