Despite notching up another win at home in midweek against Ipswich Town, the Hornet's failed to claim consecutive three-point hauls at the Vic' as Scunthorpe returned to Lincolnshire with all three.
Perhaps more worrying for the Hornet's than this defeat were the injuries suffered to talismanic forward Danny Graham, and young upstart Marvin Sordell.
The Hornet's top goalscorers were both removed in the second-half due to injury and an agonising wait ensues before the extent of the damage is revealed. Both did leave the field walking however so hopefully they will not be sidelined too long.
As expected the Hornet's went with the same starting eleven that beat Ipswich in midweek, Michael Bryan making his second career start for the club, Stephen McGinn lining up down the left hoping to add to the two goals scored in his last two.
Iron boss Baraclough brought in new signing Tony Warner between the posts to cover for injured number one, Joe Murphy whilst Michael Raynes started at centre-half having replaced the injured Rob Jones at Preston in midweek.
The visitors took the lead on 28 minutes through skipper Cliff Byrne.
After a ball from the left was flicked on a couple of times deep in the penalty area it fell to right-cum-centre-back Cliff Byrne who volleyed home superbly from the edge of the area into Scott Loach's bottom right-hand corner.
The Iron's second was an equally impressive volley, from dangerman, Martyn Woolford.
A ball in, this time from the right, was flicked across the six yard box to the former Frickley Athletic midfielder who acrobatically raised a leg high enough to bounce a volley past Loach into the opposite corner in which his skipper's had earlier nestled.
Derby County away next for the Hornet's, and once again, just the wrong time to come up against them as the Rams have just hit form.
