OTD: September 21

21 September 2019

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

Former and current Iron players born on this day: Barrie Ratcliffe (1941), David Verity (1949), Vince Duffy (1962), Kevin Rapley (1977), Darryn Stamp (1978), James Horsfield (1995), Ike Ugbo (1998).

Etienne Esajas scored the only goal as Scunthorpe overcame Plymouth Argyle for a hard-earned win at Glanford Park On This Day in 2013. 

The highlight of a quiet first half came courtesy of a header from Iron's Niall Canavan which was tipped over by Luke McCormick.

Plymouth started the second half stronger, but Reuben Reid had a goal disallowed for offside.

Scunthorpe finally broke the deadlock when Esajas pounced from close range after Sam Winnall's shot was blocked.
