OTD: January 1

1 January 2019

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on January 1...

Former Iron players born on this day: Danny Wilson (1960), Kevin Jobling (1968), Alex Calvo Garcia (1972), Jamie McCombe (1983), Shane Duffy (1992).

Defender Charlie Goode smashed home a late winner as promotion-chasing Scunthorpe edged to victory over bottom side Bury to make a winning start to 2018.

The goal came four minutes from time, on the back of a goalmouth scramble, which ended the Shakers' stubborn resistance.

A point would have done little to help the visitors' survival aspirations, but they were unlucky not to hold on for a morale-boosting draw having frustrated their hosts for long spells of a largely-forgettable clash.

The Shakers created arguably the best two chances of the first half, with Neil Danns bringing a smart stop out of goalkeeper Matthew Gilks before Craig Jones headed over the bar from a corner.

Duane Holmes almost provided Scunthorpe with a rare spark in the 56th minute, when - after going on a jinking run which had begun in his own half - he was denied by Leo Fasan's diving save.

And just when it looked like Bury had battled out an away point, Goode hammered the ball home from inside a packed penalty area to secure the points.

Overall playing record for January 1: Played 25, Won 10, Drawn 8, Lost 7, Scored 34, Conceded 33.
