Knill stunned by Iron victory
Scunthorpe manager Alan Knill described his side's victory over Derby in the Capital One Cup first round as "the most remarkable match I have ever seen".
The Iron overturned a 3-0 half-time deficit and went on to beat their Championship opponents 7-6 in a penalty shoot-out at Pride Park. Knill, whose team struck twice in injury time to draw level at 5-5 at the end of 90 minutes, said: "I can't think I've ever seen anything like that. That has to be the most remarkable match I have ever seen. "I can't get my head around it. To be honest, it was a horrible game from start to finish and I already feel as though I've been through half a season's worth of emotion. "We didn't get a tackle in for 45 minutes but when you are in trouble the only thing to do is go forward and have a go. That's what we did and by the end of normal time I felt we were well on top. "I was confident about our first five penalty takers but wondered how it would go when we got down to the next lot - the ones who were hiding and didn't want to do it. In the event they all looked full of confidence and did the business."
