Match report: Leeds United v Scunthorpe United

Leeds United cruised to a 4-0 victory over struggling Scunthorpe United at Elland Road.

Simon Grayson's side took full advantage of Scunthorpe's frailty to record a first win in five Championship games.

United put the result beyond doubt with three goals inside half-an-hour.

Sanchez Watt scored the first with a shot from the edge of the box on 17 minutes, and Gradel doubled United's lead by walking the ball in moments later.

Bradley Johnson then struck with a deflected shot from outside Scunthorpe's area, and the visitors' only reply in the first half was a back-heeled effort from Michael Collins which carried over Kasper Schmeichel's crossbar.

Watt came close to scoring again when goalkeeper Joe Murphy parried his shot early in the second half and substitute Billy Paynter narrowly failed to turn home a cross from George McCartney before Davide Somma's 89th-minute effort rounded off the result.
