Remembering past matches played by the Iron on October 26...
Scunthorpe edged to victory to end Hartlepool's five-match winning run On This Day in 2013.
The visitors looked the most likely to make the breakthrough, but were denied on several occasions by Iron goalkeeper Sam Slocombe.
He stopped Christian Burgess's acrobatic header, before reacting well to efforts from Matthew Dolan and Jonathan Franks.
But the hosts snatched all three points when Sam Winnall capitalised on a defensive slip to fire home.
