Evans admits the influence of City teammate Frank Lampard has rubbed off on him.
"I'm delighted to score first goal for Scunthorpe and now I've opened my account it is definitely something I can build on," he told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
"I will be looking to try and score more and getting in those positions will help me do that.
"I was just one of those things. I watched Frank Lampard as a youngster and when the ball is laid across to you, you just think to shoot."
