|Former Iron players born on this day: Geoff Couch (1953), Simon Snow (1966).|
Scunthorpe earned a first win in 10 games to ease their relegation concerns and dent Peterborough's play-off hopes in April 2015.
Top scorer Paddy Madden set the Iron on their way, scoring from close range when the ball fell kindly in the box.
The hosts deservedly made it 2-0 after the break when Theo Robinson struck.
An injury to referee Carl Berry, who had to be replaced by fourth official Ian Dudley, did not bring a change of luck for Posh, who only threatened through two Michael Bostwick shots.
