Remembering past matches played by the Iron on December 31...
|Former Iron players born on this day: Tom Evans (1976).|
Jimmy Ryan's stoppage time leveller for Scunthorpe denied bottom side Chesterfield victory On This Day in 2011.
The Iron took the lead when Niall Canavan headed home Michael O'Connor's corner for his first of the season.
Scott Bowden rifled in a fine equaliser for the Spireites before a bad error by home keeper Sam Johnstone left Craig Westcarr to slot into an open net.
The visitors looked set to end three months without a win but Ryan's 25 yarder left them crestfallen.
