Caretaker boss Andy Dawson gave incoming Scunthorpe manager Mark Robins a welcome boost as the Iron romped to a 3-0 victory at Gillingham in League One.

Russ Wilcox paid the price for a poor run of results earlier this week, but United responded to the news that Robins will take over on Monday with a resounding success.

Aided by the dismissal of Doug Loft, Scunthorpe ended a run of four straight defeats with goals from Paddy Madden, Neal Bishop and Gary McSheffrey, the latter deep in stoppage time.

Scunthorpe have sacked manager Russ Wilcox following a poor run of results.

The Sky Bet League One side have lost six of their last seven matches in all competitions, culminating in a 2-1 home defeat to Notts County in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.

Wilcox, who took over last December following a spell as caretaker boss, led the Iron to promotion last season having finished runners-up to Chesterfield in League Two.
