OTD: August 23

23 August 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 23...

United registered three points on this day in 2008 when a Paul Hayes penalty just before half time sealed all three points at home to Peterborough United. 

It was a clattering challenge on Marcus Williams as he drove forward which won the spot kick, with Hayes nonchalantly dispatching the kick. 
 
Three years before a debut goal from Richie Ryan and a further strike from Richard Hinds sealed progression to round two of the League Cup against Tranmere Rovers, while Paddy Madden netted against his former club in a 1-1 draw against Yeovil Town in 2014.
 
Overall playing record for August 23: Played 19, Won 4, Drawn 6, Lost 9, Scored 22, Conceded 29.
