On this day in 2014, Neal Bishop's header gave the League One Iron a 1-0 win at Championship side Blackburn Rovers.
The midfielder scored the winner in the first half when he met Gary McSheffrey's corner with a glancing near-post effort. Rovers stalwart David Dunn could have scored in the first minute but prodded wide with the goal gaping.
The Iron keeper Sam Slocombe twice denied Ben Marshall with good saves.
Prior to this result, United have also tasted victory on four other occasions, stretching back as far as 1972 when the side beat Swansea thanks to an Angus Davidson strike.
Scarborough, Macclesfield Town and Oldham Athletic have all fallen victim to Scunthorpe on August 12th.
