|Former Iron players born on this day: Doug O’Connor (1954).|
Billy Sharp snatched a last-gasp winner against Blackpool to secure Scunthorpe a well-deserved win at Glanford Park On This Day in 2006.
Sharp touched home substitute Steve Torpey's cross after a dominant second-half performance from the hosts.
Visiting goalkeeper Lee Jones pulled off two brilliant saves to deny Cliff Byrne and Andy Keogh while Sharp should have done better with an early header.
Tommy Evans was never troubled with Blackpool's only efforts coming from Rory Prendergast and Keigan Parker.
