Scowen snatches win for TykesJosh Scowen struck the only goal of the game as 10-man Barnsley battled for a 1-0 victory at Scunthorpe.He pounced on a bad defensive error by the home side to curl a right-foot shot past goalkeeper Luke Daniels and into the bottom corner in the 51st minute.It halted a run of seven successive away defeats for the Tykes and ensured back-to-back wins for caretaker boss Mark Burton.They achieved it despite having centre-back Jean Yves-M'Voto sent off in the 55th minute for a second bookable offence.Twice in the first half Conor Hourihane might have given the visitors the lead as they started brightly

First he lashed a free-kick just wide, then had a good effort well-saved by Daniels.It was a frustrating night for below-par Scunthorpe, who lacked a cutting edge.Their one bright spark was leading marksman Paddy Madden

Twice he went close in the first half and when he did get the ball in the net in the second, it was ruled out for offside
