OTD: March 11

11 March 2020

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on March 11...

Former Iron players and manager born on this day: Terry Anderson (1944), Terry Cooper (1950), Nigel Adkins (1965), Bjarni Larsson (1976).

On this day fact: Club stalwart Lee Turnbull made his debut for the Iron in a 3-2 home win over Bury in 1995. He'd play 52 times in all competitions, scoring seven goals, before going on to work for the club as head of community and then head of recruitment over the course of the next 25 years.

Scunthorpe boosted their Championship survival hopes with a slender victory at home against play-off-chasing Plymouth Argyle in 2008.

Ian Morris scored the winning goal 10 minutes after half-time, playing a neat one-two with Geoff Horsfield and seeing his shot deflected in off a defender.

Jim Goodwin forced an early save from keeper Luke McCormick as the Iron pressed, before Jamie Mackie was twice denied as Plymouth surged forward.

Argyle's hopes ended when McCormick was dismissed for deliberate handball.
