OTD: August 30

30 August 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 30...

The Iron won on this day in 2014 with Hakeeb Adelakun and Gary McSheffrey netting a quickfire double to earn three points for United at Glanford Park.

Adelakun went on a direct run from the halfway line, steaming his way past six players before slotting into the corner of the net before McSheffrey arrowed in a free kick from more than 35-yards out.
 
In total, Scunthorpe have won eight of their last nine games on this day and have won half of their games on August 30 in the past.
 
More recently, United picked up three points in the Checkatrade Trophy in 2016 against Category One academy side Middlesbrough. Murray Wallace and Adelakun netted the goals, while there was a senior debut for second year professional Lewis Butroid.
