Scunthorpe left it late before breaking stubborn 10-man Oldham's resistance and sealing a 1-0 victory On This Day in 2016.
Full-back Scott Wiseman made the decisive breakthrough in the 80th minute, his sweetly-struck shot from the edge of the box nestling in the back of the net via the inside of the post.
The story could have been much different had the Latics taken one of three good opportunities that came their way in the opening 45 minutes.
Billy McKay side-footed a great opportunity wide from seven yards when the goal was gaping and Iron keeper Luke Daniels twice thwarted Ryan Flynn after he had got in behind the defence.
