OTD: April 28

28 April 2018

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on April 28...

Scunthorpe eased to victory against already-relegated Cheltenham to move into the last League One play-off spot On This Day in 2009.

The Iron went ahead when Paul Hayes netted from close-range.

Skipper Cliff Byrne drilled in to double the lead and Henri Lansbury skipped inside and drove in a third.

The game ended on a sour note when Yuri Berchiche's challenge left Lansbury with a bad injury.
