Jonathan Forte's first-half double set Scunthorpe on their way to a comprehensive win over Crystal Palace on this day in 2010.
Forte fired the Iron ahead from 12 yards following a cross by Cliff Byrne, and he doubled his tally with a sweet 18-yard volley into the bottom corner.
Michael O'Connor's second-half penalty, which came after a Nathaniel Clyne foul on Forte, sealed the home side's win.
Jack Gregory was the hat-trick hero for the Iron back in 1954 as he netted a treble in a five-goal thriller against York City. United took the points winning 3-2.
