Remembering past matches played by the Iron on October 17...
|Former Iron players born on this day: Paul O’Riley (1950).|
Grant McCann's brace helped Scunthorpe to their first league win in five games with a 3-1 win over Sheffield United On This Day in 2009.
His first was a superb dipping 30-yard volley into the top corner to put the Iron ahead while Marcus Williams blazed over from McCann's pass.
Ched Evans drove a 20-yard free-kick into the bottom corner to level.
But Paul Hayes poked the home side back in front from Gary Hooper's pull-back and McCann rifled in a third after Josh Wright's effort came back off the post.
