OTD: March 12

12 March 2018

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on March 12...

Scunthorpe stepped up the pressure on League Two leaders Yeovil by thumping Cheltenham in 2005.

The Iron broke the deadlock through winger Matt Sparrow before Jamie Victory's shot levelled the scores.

But a second simple goal from Sparrow put the home side in charge and John Finnigan went close before Scunthorpe added two spectacular late strikes.

Richard Kell netted with a superb angled shot from 20 yards out before Cliff Byrne struck a long-range volley to complete the comprehensive rout.
