OTD: October 15

15 October 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on October 15...

Billy Sharp bagged a brace as Scunthorpe twice came from a goal down to draw against 10-man Rotherham On This Day in 2005.

Scunthorpe fell behind early on when Andy Butler headed past his own goalkeeper before Sharp levelled.

Midfielder Paul McLaren drove home to restore Rotherham's lead but Rotherham had to battle for the final half hour with only 10 men.

McLaren was dismissed for lashing out at Peter Beagrie and Sharp equalised almost immediately to snatch a point.
