Scunthorpe were 2-1 winners away at Hartlepool On This Day in 2012.
The Iron went ahead when Garry Thompson burst forward and his clipped cross was turned in by the advancing Sam Togwell.
Scunthorpe doubled their lead as they counter-attacked from a Hartlepool throw-in as Thompson raced 50 yards and shot past goalkeeper Scott Flinders.
Pools pulled a goal back with seven minutes left through Andy Monkhouse's 25-yard shot but it was not enough.
