OTD: November 16

16 November 2020

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on November 16...

Former Iron players born on this day: Danny Bowen (1921), Noel Parkinson (1959), Hugh Wood (1960), Paul D Wilson (1960), Anthony Forde (1993).

The Iron won 2-0 away at Leyton Orient in 2019.

A corner by Kevin van Veen was not dealt with and the ball found its way to Alex Gilliead on the edge of the box, who steadied himself before firing home a right-footed rocket past a shell-shocked Dean Brill.

The Iron almost doubled their advantage just before the break, with Sam Ling producing a last-ditch tackle just before Abo Eisa could pull the trigger.

Orient showed lots of endeavour without having that cutting edge and Louis Dennis saw his close-range effort blocked by visiting goalkeeper Jake Eastwood midway through the second period.

Paul Hurst's men then wrapped up their first league away win of the season when Lee Novak latched onto Matthew Lund's through ball before burying past Brill to send 612 travelling fans home happy.

Overall playing record for November 16: Played 8, Won 5, Drawn 2, Lost 1, Scored 15, Conceded 7.
