Flashback: Exeter City

13 January 2022

As the Iron get ready to take on Exeter City this Saturday, we take a look back at some memorable past encounters against the Grecians, and also view the full record.

PERCH WONDER GOAL LEADS IRON TO WIN
Iron 3-1 Exeter City
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019

Goals from James Perch, Jamie Ward and Alex Gilliead earned the Iron only their third victory of the campaign, with Matt Jay netting what ended up being a consolation for the Grecians.

A scrappy contest sprung into life in the 24th minute when full-back Perch picked up possession midway in the visiting half and fired into the top corner from 30 yards.

Exeter were level within three minutes - Jay finding the bottom corner from an angle - only for former Northern Ireland international Ward to finish emphatically from a knock down at the back post eight minutes before the interval.

Both sides had chances after the break, with Exeter's Ryan Bowman squandering one of the best when he struck the outside of the post after getting in behind the Iron defence.

Substitute Gilliead made the game safe for the hosts just two minutes after his introduction in the 75th minute, racing in at the back post to head home Ryan Colclough's cross.



PROMOTION SECURED DESPITE DEFEAT IN 2014
Exeter City 2-0 Iron
Saturday, April 28, 2014

Scunthorpe were promoted from League Two despite boss Russ Wilcox's record unbeaten start to a managerial career being ended by Exeter City. The Iron had been undefeated in Wilcox's previous 28 games at the helm.

Craig Woodman fired into the top corner from 25 yards for his first ever Exeter goal to give City the lead. Jimmy Keohane doubled the advantage after the break.

But, despite the loss, the Iron still gained automatic promotion after fourth-placed Fleetwood drew at home to Southend United.

Wilcox said afterwards: "We're all delighted. I don't want to touch on the game too much because that was really disappointing, but obviously the bigger picture is we've got the club back up to League One at the first attempt which is an outstanding achievement.

"There have been periods this season where I've had to make big decisions and big changes. Some players have been disappointed, but they've channelled that into playing a huge part backing up the players that are in their shirt."

EYRE SCORES WONDER GOAL IN VITAL WIN ON WAY TO PROMOTION
Iron 2-0 Exeter City
Saturday, April 3, 1999

Two second-half goals broke the resolve of Exeter City as United picked up a valuable three points on the way to promotion, bouncing back from a 5-0 loss at Plymouth Argyle in the last game.

Crafty striker John Eyre broke the deadlock with a rocket from the right side of the 18-yard box, before Richard Logan turned home from close range to secure a vital three points on Easter Saturday.
