Remembering past matches played by the Iron on November 8...
|Former Iron players born on this day: Leon Ryan (1982), Russell Penn (1985), James Alabi (1994).|
Gary Hooper scored twice to fire Scunthorpe into the second round of the FA Cup with a fine win away to Walsall On This Day in 2008.
Michael Ricketts gave the hosts the lead with a sweet side-footed finish past the helpless Joe Murphy.
Just before half-time Scunthorpe hit back with Hooper picking up Paul Hayes' pass and firing in from a tight angle.
Hooper scored again after a clever pass from Martyn Woolford, Walsall's Ishmael Demontagnac was sent off and Kevan Hurst's rasping shot sealed the win.
