Remembering past matches played by the Iron on January 31...

Former Iron players born on this day: Ian Davidson (1947), Gareth Sheldon (1980), Akpo Sodje (1981).

Tom Hopper scored twice as Scunthorpe won 4-1 at Leyton Orient On This Day in 2015. 

Liam O'Neil put the Iron ahead with a curling shot past Gary Woods, who was beaten again when he flapped at Gary McSheffrey's ball into the box.

Hopper slid in a third from close range, before substitute Darius Henderson replied with a penalty after being fouled in the box.
