Football - Helan strike dents Iron

Jeremy Helan scored the only goal of the game as Sheffield Wednesday claimed a 1-0 win at Scunthorpe.

PA Sport Report

Helan, who signed for the Owls from Manchester City on Thursday, poked home the winner in the 41st minute after Matt Sparrow had spurned two decent chances for the Iron.

Helan brought a fine save from Sam Slocombe early in the second half while Rhys McCabe saw a fierce drive crash back off the angle of post and crossbar.

Matt Godden should have levelled late on but he fired wide with the goal gaping.
