OTD: November 18

18 November 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on November 18...

Scunthorpe moved up to second in League One thanks to Andy Crosby's late penalty against Northampton On This Day in 2006.

Crosby scored after Cobblers defender Sean Dyche had handled in the area.

Northampton keeper Mark Bunn threatened to deny the hosts, making saves from Ian Morris and Andy Keogh, while Billy Sharp's shot was cleared off the line.

Scunthorpe continued to dominate and Cleveland Taylor crashed an angled effort against the post, before Crosby coolly converted his late opportunity.
