OTD: August 10

10 August 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 10...

The Iron drew a blank with Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium on this day in 2013, following up an opening day victory against Mansfield Town.

Looking back at 2004, United beat Cheltenham Town 2-0 to give them six points out of a possible six at the start of the campaign. Scunthorpe beat Rochdale on the opening day and quickly followed the opening day success up with three points, two goals and a clean sheet at Whaddon Road.
 
Peter Beagrie's cross was only cleared as far as Richard Kell, who sent the ball back with interest to fire the Iron ahead before another mesmerising run and cross from the former Everton winger laid the ball on a plate for Andy Keogh to head home and double the visitor's advantage in the second half.

Overall playing record for August 10: Played 6, Won 2, Drawn 2, Lost 2, Scored 7, Conceded 7.
