OTD: February 8

8 February 2021

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on February 8...

Former Iron players born on this day: Martin Bakes (1937), Mike Danzey (1971).

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.

Overall playing record for February 8: Played 10, Won 3, Drawn 2, Lost 5, Scored 11, Conceded 16.
