Striker Shefki Kuqi steered Oldham into the Johnstone's Paint Trophy quarter-finals with a 1-0 victory at Scunthorpe.

Kuqi struck the only goal of the game after 27 minutes, forcing home the rebound after a header from centre-back Nathan Clarke from a free-kick had come back off the bar.

Scunthorpe just could not find their finishing touch. Defender Shane Duffy squandered one early chance and midfielder Michael O'Connor wasted another. Striker Bobby Grant also saw a header blocked away by goalkeeper Alex Cisak.

Oldham always looked more clinical in front of goal with Chris Taylor having a good effort deflected just wide before bringing the best out of keeper Sam Johnstone with another good shot.

Scunthorpe dominated the second half only for their finishing touch to desert them again. Andy Barcham and Gary Thompson both missed great openings as too did O'Connor.

When Scunthorpe did finally get a meaningful effort on target O'Connor's thundering drive was beaten out by Cisak.
