The Iron three times took the lead and were twice pegged back before eventually taking all three points against Derby County in the Championship at Glanford Park on this day in 2009.
Martyn Woolford broke clear of the Rams' rearguard to fired home what would prove to be the winner after Gary Hooper had put United 1-0 and 2-1 up respectively.
Hooper's close-range finish opened the scoring before Paul Green burst onto Stephen Pearson's pass to equalise.
Paul Hayes played in Hooper to put the Iron in back front, but a foul on Green saw Kris Commons slot home the penalty.
Woolford netted a late winner though and United emerged victorious.
