OTD: February 5

5 February 2018

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on February 5...

Akpo Sodje struck twice on his home debut to help Scunthorpe defeat Portsmouth and move out of the League One relegation zone On This Day in 2013.

Sodje broke the deadlock, heading in Callum Kennedy's left-wing delivery at the near post.

However, Liam Walker pulled Pompey level when he drilled a superb 30-yard free-kick into the top corner.

But Sodje finished from another Kennedy cross on 85 minutes to earn the Iron only their second home win this season.
