Remembering past matches played by the Iron on October 17...
|Former Iron players born on this day: Paul O’Riley (1950).|
Grant McCann's brace helped Scunthorpe to their first league win in five games with a 3-1 win over Sheffield United On This Day in 2009.
His first was a superb dipping 30-yard volley into the top corner to put the Iron ahead while Marcus Williams blazed over from McCann's pass.
But Paul Hayes poked the home side back in front from Gary Hooper's pull-back and McCann rifled in a third after Josh Wright's effort came back off the post.
