Ryan: Dramatic equaliser for Iron

A dramatic goal by sub Jimmy Ryan in the fourth and final minute of stoppage time earned Scunthorpe a 2-2 draw at Walsall.

Ryan hammered in a low shot after collecting a pass from the outstanding Mark Duffy as the Saddlers desperately tried to hang on.

It was no more than Alan Knill's side deserved after dominating the match from start to finish but the Iron are still looking for their first win after nine league games - their worst start in 37 years.

Walsall took the lead after 22 minutes when Adam Chambers headed in a free-kick from Richard Taundry, although it was against the run of p

Scunthorpe equalised in the 78th minute when another substitute, Garry Thompson, knocked the ball in from close range following a corner.

Then, with seven minutes left, Walsall substitute Will Grigg thought he had won the game with a stunning far-post volley from Taundry's cross but Scunthorpe had other ideas and Ryan saved them in the 94th minute.
