OTD: December 7

7 December 2019

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on December 7...

Former Iron players born on this day: John Mulholland (1928), Nigel Cassidy (1945).

Two goals in the dying minutes helped League Two leaders Scunthorpe extend their unbeaten run to nine matches On This Day in 2004. 

Richard Hodgson's 35th-minute strike looked as though it would be enough to give struggling Cambridge a shock win.

But the U's were reduced to 10 men on 72 minutes as Warren Goodhind was sent off, then saw Steve Torpey poke home a close-range equaliser on 87 minutes.

And in stoppage time substitute Cleveland Taylor hammered home from inside the box.

Overall playing record for December 7: Played 6, Won 1, Drawn 3, Lost 2, Scored 6, Conceded 9. 

The Iron's full record for December 7 is as follows:
2014 FAC R2 Iron 1-1 Worcester Madden
2004 LG 2 Cambridge 1-2 Iron Torpey, Taylor
