Remembering past matches played by the Iron on November 21...

Former and current players born on this day: Willie Ferry (1966), Matthew Lund (1990), Ryan Yates (1997).

Scunthorpe leapfrogged Bradford City into third place in League One after coming from behind to beat their top-six rivals in 2017.

It was Bradford's fifth home league defeat of the season and their third in a row at Valley Parade.

Bradford dominated the first half and there were several narrow escapes for the visitors' defence before Paul Taylor gave them a deserved lead in the 44th minute with a superb 25-yard shot, Taylor giving keeper Matt Gilks no chance to save with a fierce shot into the far corner after striker Charlie Wyke had laid the ball into his path.

However, in-form Scunthorpe, who have now won five of their last six league matches, equalised a minute later when Cameron Burgess took advantage of some hesitant Bradford defending to head home the equaliser from Hakeeb Adelakun's free kick on the edge of the penalty area.

Bradford continued to dominate in the second half, but it was Scunthorpe who went ahead after 68 minutes with what proved to be the winner.

Adelakun's 20-yard free kick eluded home keeper, substitute Rouven Sattelmaier, who had replaced the injured Colin Doyle at half-time.
