Our last win On This Day came in 2015 when we defeated Gillingham 2-1 at Glanford Park.
Gary McSheffrey's winner secured League One survival for Scunthorpe in a match held up for 27 minutes because of torrential rain.
Luke Norris volleyed in off the post to give Gillingham a second-minute lead.
Hakeeb Adelakun made it 1-1 with a shot on the turn, before McSheffrey took on Paddy Madden's pass to score.
Referee Andy Haines took the players off as the pitch became waterlogged, with Gills keeper Glenn Morris saving well from Madden after the restart.
