OTD: April 14

Just now

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on April 14 in the past...

Former Iron players born on this day: John Watson (1974), Grant McCann (1980).

On This Day in 2007, Billy Sharp scored twice as United secured promotion from League One with a victory over Huddersfield Town.

The striker had an early half volley tipped over by Town keeper Matt Glennon in a nervy opening 45 minutes.

But Sharp prodded in his 27th league goal of the season when Glennon parried Kevan Hurst's shot into his path.

Iron fans were spared a nail-biting climax to the game when Joe Skarz handled in the box and Sharp converted.

Overall playing record for April 14: Played 18, Won 10, Drawn 3, Lost 5, Scored 22, Conceded 16
