OTD: October 17

17 October 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on October 17...

Grant McCann's brace helped Scunthorpe to their first league win in five games with a 3-1 win over Sheffield United On This Day in 2009.

His first was a superb dipping 30-yard volley into the top corner to put the Iron ahead while Marcus Williams blazed over from McCann's pass.

Ched Evans drove a 20-yard free-kick into the bottom corner to level.

But Paul Hayes poked the home side back in front from Gary Hooper's pull-back and McCann rifled in a third after Josh Wright's effort came back off the post.

Overall playing record for October 17: Played 18, Won 9, Drawn 5, Lost 4, Scored 31, Conceded 21.
