Scunthorpe United have been relegated from the npower Championship following a thumping 5-1 defeat away to promotion chasing Nottingham Forest.

Promoted in 2008/09 via the League 1 Play-Offs, they finished 20th last season but they now return to the third tier of English football having lost 28 of their 45 matches this season.

Alan Knill, their third boss this season, took over at Glanford Park at the end of March and despite a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Norwich City in his first game in charge, the Iron picked up seven points in their next four matches to move within three points of safety however back-to-back defeats have put paid to their slim hopes of staying up and they will kick-off next season in League 1.
