OTD: October 23

Just now

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on October 23...

Former Iron players born on this day: Syd Ottewell (1919), Mike Williams (1944).

Scunthorpe picked up a second league win of the week to cause an upset as Watford's fine form came to an end On This Day in 2010. 

A Michael O'Connor set-piece was only half cleared and Cliff Byrne drilled a low strike into the bottom corner.

Martyn Woolford was on hand to double the lead before the break, latching onto a poor clearance before lashing a left-footed strike into the net.

Stephen McGinn and Jordon Mutch both went close to pulling a goal back for the hosts but Scunthorpe held on.

Hornets centre-half Adrian Mariappa also had a great chance in the dying moments but saw his header clear the crossbar.

Overall playing record for October 23: Played 16, Won 10, Drawn 3, Lost 3, Scored 24, Conceded 11.
