Billy Sharp and Andy Keogh led from the front to give Scunthorpe victory at Carlisle On This Day in 2006.
Keogh had fired an early warning to Carlisle in the first minute with a raking 25-yard effort that goalkeeper Kieren Westwood just managed to save.
Sharp opened the scoring in the 52nd minute after he took a touch before guiding a shot past Westwood to claim a remarkable 17th goal of the season.
In added time Keogh produced a brilliant individual effort as his 40-yard lob found the back of the net.
