Matt Crooks struck an injury-time winner as Scunthorpe ended a run of nine games without a victory by coming from behind to beat Rochdale in 2017.
The visitors, who have also been struggling for form of late, were the better side during the opening 45 minutes, at the end of which they led 1-0 courtesy of Ian Henderson's header four minutes before the break.
Having earlier forced a fine stop from home goalkeeper Luke Daniels from point-blank range, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing teased a cross to the far post from where Henderson nodded home.
Scunthorpe were better in the second period and Paddy Madden glanced in a header from Stephen Dawson's cross in the 55th minute to get them back on level terms.
And having breathed a sigh of relief in the closing stages when visiting substitute Peter Vincenti had a close-range finish ruled out for offside, the Iron were toasting a late winner when Crooks fired in from the edge of the box.Overall playing record for March 14: Played 15, Won 6, Drawn 6, Lost 3, Scored 21, Conceded 17.
