Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 31...
Sam Winnall netted for the Iron on this day in 2013, but Scunthorpe couldn't hang on for all three points at Glanford Park.
The striker put United ahead inside two minutes, while Justin Edinburgh's side went close to levelling early in the second half when Lee Minshull's header was tipped away by Iron keeper Sam Slocombe.
Newport deservedly levelled when defender Hughes hammered the ball home from a corner.
