Bristol Rovers 7-0 Scunthorpe (the plot thickens)

Recommended Posts

In summary, Bristol Rovers needed to beat Scunthorpe by 7 goals to clinch promotion on Saturday. They won 7-0 and pipped Northampton on goals scored. Northampton have to settle for a playoff place. This is where it gets interesting. In January, Ryan Loft moved from Scunthorpe to Bristol Rovers for an undisclosed fee. Loft didn't play against Scunthorpe. He was an unused sub. It's being reported that as part of the deal, Scunthorpe would get an extra 50K if Bristol Rovers achieved promotion. Scunthorpe have been awful all season, but last Saturday they were absolutely awful. They rolled over and played dead. The circumstances around the game will certainly raise questions about why Keith Hill felt he shouldn't play his strongest side.

50K will be little consolation to the 10 years of Vanarama they are likely to serve!

That is interesting though, Scunthorpe have been so bad all season that I wasn't surprised when I first saw the result. Apparently Northampton have made a complaint so maybe it will be looked into but I can't see anything happening.
