OTD: August 4

4 August 2022

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on August 4...

Former Iron players born on this day: Edward Lockwood (1925), David Agnew (1939), Mike Lester (1954), Tom Collins (2002).

Andy Dales netted a late winner as Scunthorpe came from behind to beat Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena in 2018.

Jordy Hiwula twice went close inside the first 30 minutes as the home side started strongly. But Lee Novak headed against the post two minutes later for Scunthorpe, before Charlie Goode had a header cleared off the line by Dujon Sterling.

It had looked like the Sky Blues would enjoy a dream start to life back in League One when Tony Andreu gave the hosts a 52nd-minute lead with a brilliant free-kick from 25 yards.

But the Iron showed their steel to level through Stephen Humphrys in the 68th minute, a composed debut goal from substitute Duane Holmes' pass.

And the comeback was complete when Dales smashed home on his debut after Holmes showed good strength to hold off his man.

Overall playing record for August 4: Played 1, Won 1, Drawn 0, Lost 0, Scored 2, Conceded 1. 

The Iron's full record for August 4 is as follows:
2018 LG 1 Coventry 1-2 Iron Humphrys, Dales
