Flashback: Leyton Orient

22 November 2021

As we prepare for our away fixture against Leyton Orient this weekend, we look back at our record against the O's.

IRON VICTORIOUS LAST TIME OUT HERE
Iron 2-0 Leyton Orient
Saturday, December 5, 2020

United climbed away from the League Two relegation zone continued as goals from Ryan Loft and Alfie Beestin earned them victory against Leyton Orient.

Loft got in front of his marker to meet Mason O'Malley's left-wing cross in the 28th minute and, after soaking up long spells of visiting pressure, Beestin rolled in a decisive second 12 minutes from time.

Orient could well have been in front inside seven minutes but Scunthorpe goalkeeper Mark Howard saved Danny Johnson's penalty - awarded for a harsh-looking handball - with his legs.

The Iron keeper also flicked away a curling effort from Conor Wilkinson and was grateful to see a deflected shot hit by Ousseynou Cisse strike the foot of a post.

Loft's opener settled the home side, who then sat tight and kept their shape to limit the visitors to half chances.

In the second half, Wilkinson flashed an effort across the face of goal from a tight angle and Howard pushed away substitute Ruel Sotiriou's strike from just inside the box.

Scunthorpe were given some breathing space when Beestin picked his spot into the bottom corner in the 78th minute - a goal which secured their second win of the week following a 5-2 success at Harrogate Town.



UNITED ROMP TO VICTORY IN 2015
Leyton Orient 1-4 Iron
Saturday, January 31, 2015

Tom Hopper scored twice as Scunthorpe improved their League One survival prospects and put Leyton Orient in further trouble.

Liam O'Neil put the Iron ahead with a curling shot past Gary Woods, who was beaten again when he flapped at Gary McSheffrey's ball into the box.

Hopper slid in a third from close range, before substitute Darius Henderson replied with a penalty after being fouled in the box.

But Hopper completed the win 10 minutes from time after O'Neil's sublime pass.



WEMBLEY GLORY FOR SCUNTHORPE
Leyton Orient 0-1 Iron
Saturday, May 29, 1999

The Iron celebrated promotion at Wembley in 1999 following a slender 1-0 victory over Leyton Orient in the Division Three Play-Off Final.
 
Gareth Sheldon returned to the starting line-up following the suspension of John Eyre for two yellow cards in the semi-final second leg, while Paul Harsley arrived at Wembley celebrating his 21st birthday.
 
It was the stand-in for Eyre who assisted the opening - and eventually decisive - goal, firing in a cross close to the goal line for Alex Calvo-Garcia to glance home a header in the sixth minute.
 
The Iron had chances in the first half with Chris Hope and Andy Dawson both going close but after two alterations at half time, the O's sprang to life in the second half.
 
Nevertheless, the defence and 'keeper Tommy Evans remained resolute and a clean sheet meant a first promotion in sixteen years was confirmed.
