Paul Tisdale takes point from Stevenage league debut after draw with Scunthorpe
Paul Tisdale claimed a point from his first league match in charge of Stevenage following a 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Scunthorpe.
The hosts made the ideal start when Luke Norris curled a superb effort in off the post from the right-hand corner of the area in the sixth minute.
The advantage was short-lived as the Iron levelled through Myles Hippolyte, who smashed home from close range after Adam Smith failed to deal with Devarn Green’s cross.
Norris came closest in what remained of the first half, driving just wide from the edge of the box, and his fellow frontman Jamie Reid was also narrowly off target after the restart.
Both goalkeepers were called into action either side of the hour mark, Smith spooning away Ross Millen’s long-range effort and Rory Watson denying Elliott List.
List fired a stoppage-time strike across the face of goal as both sides were forced to settle for a point, leaving Keith Hill’s men still in search of their first away win of the season.
