Wins for Aberdeen, Charlton and Scunthorpe

ABERDEEN secured a second successive away victory in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday by winning 3-1 at Inverness Caledonian Thistle to maintain their position in second place.

The hosts had gone in front against the run of play through Lonsana Doumbouya, but Kenny McLean's free-kick and Adam Rooney's penalty turned the game before half-time.

City's James Maddison struck the post ahead of being substituted with quarter of an hour remaining, with McLean's second of the game a minute from time completing the scoring.

A division further down, Tony Andreu played the majority of the match as Dundee United were held to a 0-0 draw away to Greenock Morton.

Andreu went closest for the visitors but they were unable to find the goal which would have extended their winning run to eight games.

Back in England, goalkeeper Declan Rudd kept a clean sheet as Charlton Athletic emerged as 2-0 victors over Port Vale at The Valley in Sky Bet League One.

Josh Magennis and Nicky Ajose netted in the first half to ensure the Addicks made it three home league wins on the trot; the result lifting them up to 14th in the process.

Scunthorpe United still lead the division, taking their season's tally to 40 points from 18 games at the weekend with a 1-0 triumph over ten-man Oldham Athletic.

The away side saw Paul Green dismissed near the midway point of the second period, with United left to wait until ten minutes from time for Scott Wiseman's smartly-taken effort to seal victory.

Defender Harry Toffolo wasn't involved for The Iron, with the Canaries Academy graduate having recently stepped up his return from injury.
