OTD: October 4

4 October 2017

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on October 4...

Leyton Orient came from behind to draw 2-2 with Scunthorpe On This Day in 2008.

United went ahead when Izzy Iriekpen swept in after Orient failed to clear Grant McCann's corner and Paul Hayes headed a second for the visitors.

Joe Murphy was sent off for a foul on JJ Melligan in the penalty area and although Boyd's penalty was saved he scored the rebound.

And skipper Purches earned a point with a cool finish after 68 minutes.

In 2016, Oliver Lancashire netted an own goal early on in a 2-0 Checkatrade Trophy victory over Shrewsbury Town.

Jonathon Margetts would head home the Iron's second in the second half on his debut to seal the victory.
