Scunthorpe earned a first victory under caretaker manager Russ Wilcox as John McAtee's first-half strike gave them a 1-0 win against Cheltenham in 2020.
The Iron forward gambled on a ball upfield from Levi Sutton before showing great composure to knock it around goalkeeper Owen Evans and roll home in the 17th minute.
It was one of few real chances at either end of the pitch in a game in which defences were largely on top.
