|Former Iron players born on this day: Ted Gleadall (1931), Bruce Collard (1953), Joe Murphy (1981).|
Following a positive start to the campaign, a derby-day victory over Lincoln City was just what the doctor ordered on this day in 2004.
It was a day for headed goals for the Iron, as United were pegged back from 2-0 up to then net a dramatic late winner at Glanford Park.
Richard Kell headed home a Peter Beagrie cross before another centre from the veteran allowed Butler to double Scunthorpe's advantage.
Lee Ridley fouled Simon Yeo and Gary Taylor-Fletcher's twice-taken penalty hauled Lincoln back into the match before Ben Futcher equalised.
Futcher's goal came with a minute of normal time left but Butler headed home Beagrie's corner for the winner.
