Scunthorpe secured a deserved win over Wycombe thanks to first half goals from Paul Hayes and Andy Crosby in 2004.
The Iron went ahead in the 27th minute when Paul Hayes struck a fierce angled drive from the left edge of the box.
And Andy Crosby slotted the second from the spot after Stuart Nethercott was penalised for a push on Hayes.
The home side had chances to seal the win before the break while Wycombe's best opening saw Roger Johnson denied by keeper Paul Musselwhite.
In 2016, the Iron claimed a point as Josh Morris netted from a free-kick before United were pegged back after the Cobblers were reduced to ten men.
