The Iron moved into second place in League One thanks to a 73rd-minute goal from substitute Steve Torpey, as they beat Millwall 1-0 in 2006.
The striker stabbed home Marcus Williams' cross after the full-back played a neat one-two with Andy Keogh.
Millwall dominated the game but failed to take any of their numerous chances and remain in the relegation zone.
Darren Byfield missed two good chances, Filipe Morais hit the side-netting and Poul Hubertz was twice denied by Scunthorpe keeper Josh Lillis.
