OTD: September 24

23 September 2021

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on September 24...

Former and current Iron players born on this day: Jack Gregory (1926), Billy Whiteside (1935), Harry Davis (1991), Reon Potts (2000).

Two goals from Damien Mozika earned Scunthorpe United their first league win of the season at home to Yeovil in 2011. 

Kieran Agard hit the post for the visitors before midfield man Mozika put Scunthorpe ahead on the stroke of half time, firing home from close range.

Yeovil quickly levelled in first-half injury time with Paul Wotton's penalty following Paul Reid's trip on Agard.

But Mozika's powerful finish from 18 yards eight minutes into the second half restored the hosts' lead.

Oliver Norwood hit the bar for the Iron, whose keeper Sam Johnstone then denied Steve MacLean a late equaliser.

In 2016, the Iron came from behind to lead 2-1 against eventual Champions Sheffield United, but conceded a late penalty to draw 2-2.

The Blades were reduced to ten men in the second half, with Josh Morris restoring parity with a powerful strike before Duane Holmes struck from range to put Scunthorpe in the ascendancy.

Referee Darren Deadman then penalised David Mirfin for a high foot in the box as Billy Sharp smashed home the spot kick for a 2-2 draw.
