Jordy Hiwula rescues a point for Fleetwood at Scunthorpe

Jordy Hiwula capitalised on a defensive howler as Fleetwood secured a late point in a 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe.
The striker slotted home from inside the penalty area, making the most of a mistake by Iron defender Murray Wallace to maintain his side's record of having scored in every game this season.
Until that point, Lee Novak's first-half finish looked like it would prove decisive with Scunthorpe in control for long spells.
The experienced striker struck his third goal in six games in the 18th minute, cleverly hooking the ball home from a tight angle after a corner on the opposite flank had run through to him beyond the far post.
Having been limited to long-range efforts in the first-half, Fleetwood looked more of a threat after the break following the introduction of Conor McAleny, who twice forced saves out of Matt Gilks.
And though Novak saw a near-post shot flash across the face of goal, it was the Cod Army who claimed a point when Hiwula seized upon Wallace's underhit backpass to level five minutes from time.
