Scunthorpe United succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at The Valley on Tuesday evening against Charlton. A late penalty concession was converted by The Addicks, Tony Watt, which extended Scunthorpe’s winless run to eight. Iron fans have taken to Twitter to react to their disappointing defeat.

A volley in the 33rd minute by Charlton skipper Johnnie Jackson saw Charlton take an unexpected lead in the first-half. However, Scunthorpe’s Van Veen was able to peg one back half-way through the second half in the 75th minute. In the closing stages of the game, Jorge Teixeira was brought down in the box which allowed Tony Watt to step up and convert from the spot. The final result 2-1 to the Addicks, meaning Scunthorpe extend their winless run to eight.

The Iron remains in third place, three points behind second place Fleetwood Town. However, the Cod Army have a game in hand. Scunthorpe must get back to winning ways as only three points separate them from sixth place Millwall. A continue of disappointing results and the dropping of points could see the Iron drop out of the possible promotion spots altogether.

Scunthorpe United fans have taken to Twitter to make clear their feelings on the current predicament and the result on Tuesday evening.
