We may have lost 2-0 but promotion from League Two was clinched at Exeter City On This Day in 2014.
The Iron had been undefeated in then-manager Russ Wilcox's previous 28 games at the helm.
Craig Woodman fired into the top corner from 25 yards for his first ever Exeter goal to give City the lead.
Jimmy Keohane doubled the advantage after the break as keeper Sam Slocombe fumbled his low effort from the edge of the box and it crept over the line.
But, despite the loss, the Iron still gained automatic promotion after fourth-placed Fleetwood drew at home to Southend United.
