OTD: August 11

11 August 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 11...

The Iron started life in the Championship with a 1-1 draw at Charlton in 2007.

Despite creating a host of chances and applying almost pressure, it took the Addicks 62 minutes to score. Marcus Bent slotted in from six yards after Yassin Moutaouakil's cross had broken to him via a deflection.

But Scunthorpe centre-back Izzy Iriekpen headed in on his debut to earn his side a share of the points for Nigel Adkins' side with a bullet header from a corner.

Since that result, the Iron have hosted two League Cup encounters in 2009 and 2015 respectively.

In 2009, Matt Sparrow and Paul Hayes both netted in a 2-1 victory over Chesterfield while in 2015, United bowed out on penalties after drawing 1-1 in normal time.

Overall playing record for August 11: Played 5, Won 1, Drawn 2, Lost 2, Scored 4, Conceded 5.
