VIDEO: Newcastle go four points clear after beating Scunthorpe

Newcastle 3 – Scunthorpe 0 (Championship, March 17, 2010) The Magpies went in front with 10 minutes gone when Andy Carroll met Danny Guthrie’s corner with a thumping header to claim his 13th goal of the season. Wayne Routledge’s defence splitting pass put Peter Lovenkrands in on goal and the Dane finished superbly to make it 2-0 in the 22nd. Newcastle killed the match 10 minutes into the second half when Coloccini picked up possession deep inside his own half and fed Guthrie, whose ball over the top allowed Carroll to race away and chip a delicate shot over the advancing Murphy.
