OTD: August 14

14 August 2022

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 14...

Former Iron players born on this day: Mark Atkins (1968).

United were involved in a thrilling League Cup first round encounter back in 2012, with ten goals shared before a dramatic penalty shoot-out.

Headers from Richard Keogh and Jake Buxton put the Rams two up, before Theo Robinson steered home another to make it 3-0 to hosts.

Andy Barcham replied but Buxton headed in again before Mike Grella netted, and Robinson's penalty was then saved before Bobby Grant made it 4-3.

Nathan Tyson made it 5-3 to seemingly put the tie beyond the Iron but Connor Jennings and Grant levelled in stoppage time to send the encounter to extra time and then penalties.

Jennings scored in the shoot-out and Tom Naylor hit the bar in the decisive kicks to put Scunthorpe through to round two.
