OTD: March 5

5 March 2018

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

Joe Garner's 71st minute penalty against Swansea gave Scunthorpe United a vital win in their battle against relegation from the Championship in 2011.

Swansea had enough chances to win a fifth game on the trot, but defeat ended the promotion-chasers' four-match winning run.

Garner set up his own penalty chance, beating Ashley Williams before Alan Tate brought him down in the box.

The striker smashed home from the penalty spot to seal the win.
