Result: Notts County beaten by Scunthorpe United in EFL Cup first round

Joe Jones

Notts County have been knocked out of the EFL Cup at the first hurdle after falling to a 2-0 extra-time defeat at Scunthorpe United in Tuesday's first-round tie at Glanford Park.

The Magpies had the opening shot on target as a cross was floated over by Jon Stead and hit on the volley by Alex Rodman which Luke Daniels parried away.

Alan Smith then tried his luck with an audacious volley from about 30 yards out which wasn’t too far off target, while Kevin van Veen came close on 25 minutes for the Iron.

Both sides traded chances throughout the game but neither could break the deadlock by the full-time mark, so extra time it would be.

The hosts went on to take the lead in the 100th minute as Josh Morris's free kick into the box was knocked on by Murray Wallace and drilled home by Van Veen.

The Dutchman then sealed the win for Scunthorpe when he received the ball on the edge of the box and curled into the bottom corner to send John Sheridan's team home with a second consecutive competitive defeat of the season - with no goals scored.

disappointed to go out in such a manner as we did, notts bottled it after their first goal. proud that we completed so well, yet the talk of fighting among the players and all that pettiness is annoying.
