Flashback: Northampton Town

3 September 2021

As the Iron prepare for their third away league game of the season at Northampton Town this Saturday, we take a look at our record against them and pick out three memorable fixtures at Sixfields.

THE LAST WIN AWAY
Northampton Town 0-3 Iron
Saturday, November 18, 2017

Scunthorpe extended their winning run to four league games as Duane Holmes' second-half double eased them to a 3-0 victory over Northampton.

The game had been even up until half-time but United went through the gears in the second half and scored three times, all created by the outstanding Hakeeb Adelakun, to send Northampton back into the relegation zone.

The Cobblers had weathered a strong start from the visitors to shade much of the first half with Matt Crooks and John-Joe O'Toole off target with headers.

A brilliant goal-line clearance by David Buchanan thwarted Holmes late in the opening period before Scunthorpe took control.

They flew out of the blocks in the second half and broke the deadlock after 56 minutes when Adelakun drilled in a low cross and Cameron Burgess stabbed home.

Their lead was doubled three minutes later and Adelakun again was the provider, sending through Holmes with a long ball and the quick striker coolly lobbed Matt Ingram.

Holmes repeated the trick to put the result beyond doubt after 74 minutes, this time rounding Ingram and rolling the ball into an empty net.



BRILLIANT LATE WINNER
Northampton Town 1-2 Iron
Saturday, January 14, 2017

Josh Morris grabbed the late winner as second-placed Scunthorpe beat League One strugglers Northampton at Sixfields.

The opening period came to life when Kevin Van Veen twice went close, heading wide from close range before seeing Adam Smith save his low drive from the edge of the box.

Cobblers created a couple of openings, Matt Taylor being denied by Luke Daniels who then thwarted Marc Richards.

But Scunthorpe broke the deadlock in the 21st minute when Stephen Dawson's cross was headed home by Van Veen from close range.

John-Joe O'Toole fired wide and Hoskins was denied again by Daniels. But Cobblers equalised three minutes before the interval when Alex Revell headed home Taylor's near-post cross.

After the restart, Van Veen fired wide before Cobblers got on top and Zander Diamond twice went close. From Taylor's cross, Diamond saw his header thump the upright before heading over from close range.

But Scunthorpe also had a couple of decent chances as the half progressed, Van Veen firing over before Morris hit the bar from a free-kick with Smith well beaten and Craig Davies headed over for the visitors.

Scunthorpe had the better late chances, as Harry Toffolo headed over, Smith denied Duane Holmes and when the ball ran loose Morris volleyed over. But the visitors won it in the 83rd minute when Diamond's clearing header only fell to Morris on the edge of the box and he curled into the top corner.



SIX GOAL THRILLER
Northampton Town 3-3 Iron
Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Northampton kept alive their hopes of League One survival after a thrilling draw with play-off hopefuls Scunthorpe.

The Cobblers opened the scoring through Jason Crowe but Liam Trotter levelled, heading home Grant McCann's corner.

McCann scored from the spot after Luke Guttridge fouled Martyn Woolford, who also hit the crossbar from close range.

Ikechi nodded home before Matt Sparrow restored Scunthorpe's advantage with a fine drive, only for Mark Hughes to head in a Danny Jackman corner.
