OTD: October 18

18 October 2017

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

A last-minute strike by Matthew Sparrow gave Scunthorpe victory at Cheltenham and kept them top of League One On This Day in 2008.

The midfielder fired in from 18 yards to deny Cheltenham, who had dominated much of the match.

Gary Hooper collected Grant McCann's through-ball to slot Scunthorpe ahead against the run of play.

The hosts drew level through substitute Paul Connor's glancing header and they had chances to increase their advantage before Sparrow secured the points.
