OTD: April 30

30 April 2018

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on April 30...

Scunthorpe boosted their promotion hopes with a superb win against Bristol Rovers On This Day in 2005.

Steve Torpey's glancing header after eight minutes broke the deadlock and he scored another similarly soon after.

Paul Hayes lobbed over Ryan Clarke for his 20th of the season before Disley received his second booking.

Towards the end of the match, Cleveland Taylor took advantage of Rovers' failure to clear when he looped a header into the top corner.

Promotion was secured at Shrewsbury a week later.
