OTD: December 18

18 December 2022

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on December 18...

Andy Butler headed home twice against Rushden to keep Scunthorpe seven points clear at the top of the Division Three table On This Day in 2004.

Rushden surprised the leaders by taking an early lead when on-loan Gary Mulligan drilled home from close range.

But Peter Beagrie's pinpoint accuracy from set-pieces proved valuable as Butler twice headed in corners to put the visitors ahead.

Paul Hayes then set up Steve Torpey to put the result beyond doubt with a blasted effort from distance.
