Flashback: Oldham Athletic

3 February 2022

As we get ready to host Oldham Athletic on Saturday, we look back at three memorable past encounters and our full record versus the Latics.

IRON VICTORIOUS JUST OVER A MONTH AGO
Oldham Athletic 1-3 Iron
Sunday, December 26th, 2021

Substitute Ryan Loft scored twice as his side came from behind to defeat League Two relegation rivals Oldham.

Loft came on at half-time with his side trailing and went on to play a pivotal role in the Iron's first away win of the season and Keith Hill's first since taking over.

Scunthorpe created the first chance in the battle of the league's bottom two when Harry Bunn drove inches off target from 12 yards.

Oldham then struck when Harry Vaughan teed up Benny Couto, and he smashed home an angled strike into the far corner from 18 yards.

An even contest in the opening half then saw Bunn force Oldham goalkeeper Jayson Leutwiler into a smart save.

Just past the half-hour mark Couto fired in a low drive which forced a terrific save from Rory Watson.

Scunthorpe levelled shortly after the restart when replacement Loft volleyed home Myles Hippolyte's looping cross from 12 yards.

Minutes later Loft drove a powerful shot against the crossbar as the visitors looked to go ahead.

Loft played in Hippolyte to make it 2-1 in the 74th minute, then three minutes later the Iron hero drilled home to wrap up the points as he met Hayden Hackney's through-ball.



VAN VEEN NETS MEMORABLE GOAL IN 2015
Oldham Athletic 2-4 Iron
Saturday, October 10th, 2015

The Iron earned their first away win of the 2015-16 season as Oldham suffered their first loss under manager David Dunn.

Gary McSheffrey had already hit the post before he poked home Paddy Madden's cross but Liam Kelly soon levelled from close range.

Dominic Poleon restored the visitors' lead before Tommy Rowe's deflected effort made it 2-2 before half-time.

Madden's close-range finish after a blocked header and substitute Kevin van Veen's superb solo effort wrapped up the win.



IRON AND LATICS PLAY TOP OF THE TABLE CRACKER IN 2007
Iron 1-1 Oldham Athletic
Saturday, January 13th, 2007

Oldham's Gary McDonald snatched an equaliser four minutes injury time to cruelly deny nine-man Scunthorpe.

The Iron went ahead against their fellow League One promotion contenders after 54 minutes when Ian Morris' cross was headed into his own net by Oldham's Sean Gregan.

They then had Cliff Byrne sent off after 61 minutes for a foul on Chris Taylor, and Cleveland Taylor went three minutes later for a second yellow card.

Ref Darren Deadman also showed nine yellow cards before McDonald scrambled home the leveller.
