⏪ Rewind 60 years: 1957-58: September 14th: The reigning Champions of Division Three North

14 September 2017

United had to be content with a point in a six-goal thriller at the Old Show Ground against Mansfield Town.

For the second home game in a row, United conceded two goals after being in a winning position. The only difference being on this occasion, they'd not only surrender top spot, but also surrender a point.

Scunthorpe were in a commanding 3-1 lead after coming from a goal behind, but had to be content with a point and almost ended the game with nothing but for last ditch defending and goalkeeping.
