Remembering past matches played by the Iron on September 12...
Scunthorpe grabbed their first away win of the 2009-10 Championship season by convincingly beating Crystal Palace.
The result was also a convincing one as they put four goals past Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. A Danny Butterfield mistake allowed Jonathan Forte to round 'keeper Julian Speroni and slot the visitors ahead.
Rob Jones's flick allowed Paul Hayes to nip in at the near post and score before Sam Togwell drilled in a shot to put Scunthorpe 3-0 up.
Michael O'Connor's cool finish compounded Palace's misery, while Freddie Sears missed a late penalty as the hosts attempted some sort of compensation.
United also won on this day in 2006 and 2015 respectively, with the previous win on September 12 coming as Paddy Madden capitalised on a defensive lapse to give the side three points against Coventry City.
Overall playing record for September 12: Played 19, Won 6, Drawn 5, Lost 8, Scored 28, Conceded 33.
