ACCRINGTON Stanley conceded two late goals to exit the Carling Cup at the first-round stage tonight.

Chris Dagnall converted a penalty with eight minutes left after Kern Miller had pushed Andy Barcham, who added a second with a curling 20-yard effort in the third minute of stoppage time.

Stanley striker Kurtis Guthrie was denied by Josh Lillis when clear through inside 20 seconds and Craig Lindfield also saw a shot saved, although Barcham headed over from eight yards for Scunthorpe.

Barcham was on as a substitute after former Stanley midfielder Jimmy Ryan was forced to limp off following a challenge from Dean Winnard.

Fellow ex-Red Bobby Grant came off the bench to appear for Scunthorpe in the second half, when Kevin McIntyre turned Mark Duffy's cross against his own bar before the Iron won it with two late goals.
