OTD: September 21

21 September 2017

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

Etienne Esajas scored the only goal as Scunthorpe overcame Plymouth Argyle for a hard-earned win at Glanford Park On This Day in 2013.

The highlight of a quiet first half came courtesy of a header from Iron's Niall Canavan which was tipped over by Luke McCormick.

Plymouth started the second half stronger, but Reuben Reid had a goal disallowed for offside.

Scunthorpe finally broke the deadlock when Esajas pounced from close range after Sam Winnall's shot was blocked.
