OTD: October 21

21 October 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on October 21...

The Iron won 4-1 at Carlisle On This Day in 2014.

The craft of veteran midfielder Peter Beagrie and the probing of classy Steve MacLean gave the Carlisle defence a torrid time.

The surprise was that Scunthorpe went in just one goal ahead at the interval - a 23rd-minute strike by Steve Torpey after the chance was set-up by Terry Barwick and MacLean.

Ian Kilford and Wayne Graves had chances to add to the visitors' advantage and Carlisle keeper Peter Keen beat away MacLean's effort after good work by Torpey.

MacLean scored Scunthorpe's second in the 51st minute after taking Beagrie's pass in his stride and cutting inside past two weak challenges to cleverly beat Keen for his ninth goal of the season.

Scunthorpe went further ahead after 64 minutes with a superb solo effort by defender Kevin Sharp.

His angled volley from 25 yards left Keen grasping at thin air as it flew in at the far post.

Beagrie - denied a spectacular free-kick goal by Keen's diving stop - got his reward in the 83rd minute, netting from the penalty spot after on-loan debutant Shaun Smith had fouled Graves in the area.

The home side grabbed some small consolation in the 87th minute when substitute Craig Farrell profited from an error by Sam Russell.

The visiting keeper flapped at a Smith corner and the ball dropped to the Carlisle striker who side-footed home from 12 yards.
