Remembering past matches played by the Iron on May 1...
Our last game played On This Day saw Division Three safety confirmed with a week to spare, despite a 3-2 defeat at Cambridge in 2004.
Ashley Nicholls won a race with Iron keeper Tom Evans to prod the ball home to put the U's ahead before a curling shot from Daniel Chillingworth made it 2-0.
Peter Beagrie scored directly from a corner to give Scunthorpe hope but Chillingworth nodded home after Danny Webb hit the bar to make it 3-1.
Steve Torpey replied with a tap-in for the Iron, but Cambridge held on to win. Nevertheless, there were Iron celebrations at full-time as survival was secured owing to results elsewhere.
