OTD: February 22

22 February 2021

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on February 22...

Former Iron manager born on this day: John Duncan (1949).

David Syers scored the first hat-trick of his career as promotion-chasing Scunthorpe thrashed Portsmouth in February 2014.

Midfielder Syers struck early with a deflected shot and Gary McSheffrey's superb backheel set up Sam Winnall for his 17th of the season.

Paddy Madden set up Syers for his second and then tapped in his first for the club just after the break.

Syers wrapped things up from Hakeeb Adelakun's pass before debutant Michael Drennan headed a Pompey consolation.
