Two goals from veteran striker Deon Burton gave Scunthorpe a comfortable 2-0 win over Morecambe On This Day in 2013.
The 37-year-old opened the scoring when he tapped in Christian Ribeiro's low right-wing cross at the far post.
Burton then got his fourth goal of the season as he turned on the edge of the box and drilled a left-footed shot into the bottom corner.
David Syers and Burton could have extended the lead as Morecambe failed to create any clear cut chances.
