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.
Three men have been arrested by police investigating alleged racist chanting directed at Rotherham's manager during their League One match at Gillingham.
The trio - aged 24, 27 and 57 - were held on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence and freed on police bail until May 7, Kent Police said.
It is alleged some Gillingham fans chanted racist abuse at Rotherham boss Steve Evans during his side's pulsating 4-3 win over the Gills at the MEMS Priestfield Stadium on Saturday.
Gillingham's Adam Barrett will want to forget about this open goal miss against Stevenage last night as quickly as possible.
Luckily for the hapless defender, the Gills ended their League One encounter as 3-2 winners.
Glenn Walker scored the only goal of the game for Brackley Town as the Conference North side reached the second round of the FA Cup for the first time ever by upsetting Gillingham.

Peter Taylor has been confirmed as Gillingham's permanent manager until the end of the season.
Taylor took control at the Sky Bet League One club on an interim basis almost a month ago to the day following Martin Allen's sacking.
