OTD: April 6

6 April 2018

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on April 6...

Jon Parkin came off the bench to give in-form Scunthorpe victory over relegation-threatened Exeter in 2012.

The visitors' Lauri Dalla Valle spurned a great chance when he headed straight at keeper Sam Slocombe from close in.

The woodwork then denied the Iron twice in quick succession when Josh Walker's strike came back off the bar before Jimmy Ryan's effort struck the post.

Scunthorpe, though, finally got the breakthrough when Jamie Reckford cut back to Parkin who fired home.

Overall playing record for April 6: Played 16, Won 6, Drawn 4, Lost 6, Scored 19, Conceded 25.
