WATCH: MCGEEHAN'S EQUALISER
SCUNTHORPE 2-2 ROTHERHAM
A late, dramatic equaliser from Cameron McGeehan secures a hard-fought draw against Rotherham and we have another play-off semi-final finely-poised for the second leg! Stay tuned for a full report, highlights and reaction!
90+7: CORNER! Scunthorpe have a corner in the final minute of added time, but as the ball comes back out, Wallace strikes a low shot wide.
90+6: SUB! And another sub for the visitors as Forde replaces man-of-the-match Williams.
90+4: SUB! Late change for the hosts as Ivan Toney makes way for Tom Hopper. Just a few minutes for the Iron to hold on.
90+2: A quick update - we're into SEVEN minutes of added time here at Glanford Park!
GOAL! SCUNTHORPE 2-2 ROTHERHAM (McGeehan, 89)
What drama! Twice Scunthorpe have climbed off the canvas and they are firmly back in this one! Holmes' long-throw is flicked on by Toney and after a scramble, Cameron McGeehan pokes an effort goalwards that is taken beyond Rodak by Ihiekwe, it seems!
SCUNTHORPE 1-2 ROTHERHAM
86: WIDE! Williams has grown into this game and almost has a goal to cap his performance, but arrows a left-footed effort narrowly wide of the mark.
87: FREE-KICK! Ojo is correctly denied a penalty after a challenge by Vaulks, but Scunthorpe do have a free-kick around 30 yards out on the left here...
85: CROSS! Morris steals a march on the edge of the area and slides a cross in, but McGeehan is just a yard or so too far back to capitalise!
84: Wallace holds his ground and is lucky to not concede possession at the hands of Newell inside the area - the latter netted what could prove to be the winner and he has got a taste for goals.
82: Smith pings a hopeful ball from the right flank to the left, but it's far too pacy for Emmanuel to pick up and drive forward with. We're into the final 10 minutes of this one...
75: SUB! Hakeeb Adelakun's afternoon is over as he's replaced by Cameron McGeehan. His influence waned as the game went on, though he was pivotal in the creation of Scunthorpe's equaliser.
74: You just feel, at this moment in time, that the pendulum is swinging in Rotherham's favour. Scunthorpe are eight games unbeaten, though. Can they prevent that streak ending this afternoon?
71: SUB! Semi Ajayi is about to enter the fray in place of Richie Towell. It looks as though he's going to be taking up a berth in defensive midfield.
WATCH: NEWELL RESTORES LEAD
How about that for drama then?!
67: SHOT! Almost deja vu here! Holmes breaks free and aims an effort at Rodak's far post. The keeper makes the save, but though the ball trickles across goal, Toney's momentum carries him too far and the forward can't meet it!
GOAL! SCUNTHORPE 1-2 ROTHERHAM (Newell, 64)
What about that for a first touch of the game then! Emmanuel shows incredible power to muscle his way into the area and deliver a cross to the far post where Joe Newell slams home past the sub keeper Watson!
SCUNTHORPE 1-1 ROTHERHAM
63: SUB! Taylor's afternoon is also over as he's replaced by Newell. He looked in pain after that collision with Gilks and neither has come off well in the end.
62: SUB! Gilks looks in pain again here after a collision with his centre-backs and will be coming off now, to be replaced by Watson between the sticks. Huge smile from the youngster as he enters the fray!
61: Williams makes headway down the left in numerous occasions here. He's looked like a real livewire at times this afternoon, but the final ball has been lacking.
58: Very bizarrre injury sustained by Scunthorpe stopper Gilks as he almost does a 360-degree flip in trying to throw the ball out of his area. It looks like he's done his knee but will he be good to continue?
55: FREE-KICK! Williams drives forward but is felled by the powerful arm of Clarke. Dangerous spot for a set-piece, this. Taylor swings the ball in but it's straight down the throat of Gilks.
YELLOW! More action as the Iron counter after that chance and Taylor is the next person to have his name taken following a tussle with Holmes.
53: CHANCES! McArdle heads a cross into the hands of Rodak, moments after Toney had held off his marker to allow Ojo to strike an effort at goal.
51: YELLOW! Palmer inadvertantly handles the ball as he tries to bring the ball under control, but he's booked anyway.
48: Scrappy opening to this half. You'd feel that this period may have a slightly cagier feel, with both sides having had 45 minutes to work out what their opponents are all about.
SECOND HALF! SCUNTHORPE 1-1 ROTHERHAM
After a fairly open first half, we're back underway at Glanford Park!

So the two sides head into the break level after an explosive spell that saw Jon Taylor slide the opener for Rotherham and Michael Ihiekwe put the ball into his own net inside just 76 seconds. It's been a relatively open encounter with both sides looking threatening at times so it's finely poised for a big second half.
Stay tuned because we'll bring you the remainder of the game in under 15 minutes' time!
45+3: Yates goes down under a pull from Palmer and conplains to the referee that he's been fouled four times this half. No punishments handed out, however.
45+1: We'll have TWO added minutes at the end of this first half.
43: Slight stoppage here after a bottle is thrown at Jon Taylor as he goes to take a Rotherham corner. Very hostile atmosphere behind the hosts' goal at times this half...
38: YELLOW! Wallace is the first player in the book as he takes one for the team to hold back Towell as the Brighton loanee attempts to counter.
39: FREE-KICK! Williams is chopped to the ground by Adelakun on the right flank. Lucky, really, because his first touch was poor.
35: McArdle panics in possession and Smith picks up the loose ball before surging forward from around 25 yards out. All of a sudden Rotherham win a corner and look dangerous again...
SHOT! Another shot from Vaulks from range, but the midfielder can't make a meaningful connection and Gilks claims.
32: CORNER! Yates manages to spin his marker as he picks up Ojo's pass into the box and wins a corner as a result. Adelakun delivers the set-piece but there's another push somewhere in the area and the referee halts play.
31: Adelakun coolly swings a lofted free-kick into the area as the Iron look to continue their stellar response to going behind, but an offside flag is raised in the process.
29: So after that drama, everything seems to have settled down in the last few minutes. But there's some frustration for Smith as he tussles with McArdle as he tries to latch onto a long ball out of the Rotherham defence.
WATCH: IHIEKWE'S OWN-GOAL
The play-off drama has begun...
WATCH: TAYLOR'S OPENER
23: CHANCE! Scunthorpe want more! They are raining down attacks on the Rotherham back four at the moment and Adelakun has just crossed another ball from the left looking for Toney, but thankfully for the visitors, the frontman can't bring the delivery under his control.
GOAL! SCUNTHORPE 1-1 ROTHERHAM (Ihiekwe OG, 18)
Within seconds, the Iron are level! It comes from a lovely flowing more from the hosts, but Michael Ihiekwe should do better in this case. Duane Holmes cuts in off the right as he has done numerous times already today, dinks goalwards, but Ihiekwe gets his feet in a muddle and puts the ball into his own net!
GOAL! SCUNTHORPE 0-1 ROTHERHAM (Taylor, 17)
They've looked good in the opening stages and it's advantage Rotherham! Richie Towell sends a lovely aerial ball over the top, Jon Taylor holds off his marker and slides the opening goal!
SCUNTHORPE 0-0 ROTHERHAM
14: Williams and Mattock link up well on the left hand side, but as the latter tries to pick up target man Smith on the edge of the 18-yard box, defenders Wallace and McArdle combine well to take the ball away from him.
BLOCK! Vaulks pulls the trigger on the edge of the area but Yates puts in a crunching block to divert the ball away.
10: Really good atmosphere here at Glanford Park, but will the on-field action match it?
8: SHOT! Rodak makes a simple save as Holmes sidefoots at the stopper after cutting in from the right hand side.
7: CORNER! Scunthorpe make their first real foray forward and earn a corner for their toils after Clarke surging run is ended by Williams. Townsend picks the deep delivery up at the far post, cuts inside and takes aim, but Towell stands strong to block.
