OTD: November 3

3 November 2018

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on November 3...

Former Iron players born on this day: Mick Wadsworth (1950), Rob Jones (1979).

Steve Torpey grabbed two goals in nine minutes as Scunthorpe overpowered Leyton Orient 4-1 On This Day in 2001. 

Torpey opened the scoring in the 11th-minute when he struck home a rebound off a defender.

He doubled his side's lead soon after when he rammed home a Peter Beagrie cross.

Steve Watts and Andy Harris both missed good chances for the O's before the break.

They were made to pay when they fell further behind to a fine individual effort by Lee Hodges.

Orient's Scott Houghton saw Tommy Evans save his 68th-minute penalty but Scott Minton followed up to notch a consolation goal.

Beagrie netted the Iron's fourth in the last minute when he fired home from 30 yards.
