OTD: DECEMBER 21

21 December 2016

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on December 21...

Two goals from veteran striker Deon Burton gave Scunthorpe a comfortable 2-0 win over Morecambe On This Day in 2013.

The 37-year-old opened the scoring when he tapped in Christian Ribeiro's low right-wing cross at the far post.

Burton then got his fourth goal of the season as he turned on the edge of the box and drilled a left-footed shot into the bottom corner.

David Syers and Burton could have extended the lead as Morecambe failed to create any clear cut chances.

Overall playing record for December 21: Played 7, Won 2, Drawn 3, Lost 2, Scored 9, Conceded 9.
