OTD: APRIL 20

20 April 2016

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on April 20...

A stunning late comeback by the Iron saw them earn the point they needed to ensure their Championship survival On This Day in 2010.

Reading dominated early on but the Iron hit the bar through Martyn Woolford's volley and Grant McCann's free-kick.

Alex Pearce volleyed the Royals ahead and Gylfi Sigurdsson made it 2-0 from the spot after Jobi McAnuff was fouled.

But with eight minutes left, Gary Hooper hooked home after Garry Thompson had his shot parried and Matt Sparrow's deflected shot earned the Iron a draw.

The final whistle at Glanford Park was followed by a pitch invasion by jubilant Iron fans.

Overall playing record for April 20: Played 16, Won 7, Drawn 6, Lost 3, Scored 21, Conceded 16.
