|Former Iron players born on this day: John Mulholland (1928), Nigel Cassidy (1945).|
Two goals in the dying minutes helped League Two leaders Scunthorpe extend their unbeaten run to nine matches On This Day in 2004.
Richard Hodgson's 35th-minute strike looked as though it would be enough to give struggling Cambridge a shock win.
But the U's were reduced to 10 men on 72 minutes as Warren Goodhind was sent off, then saw Steve Torpey poke home a close-range equaliser on 87 minutes.
And in stoppage time substitute Cleveland Taylor hammered home from inside the box.
