Flashback: Crawley Town

3 March 2022

As we prepare to visit Crawley Town this weekend, we look back at our three past wins against them.

IRON VICTORIOUS EARLIER THIS SEASON
Iron 2-1 Crawley Town
Saturday, October 23rd, 2021

Scunthorpe picked up their first win in 10 games with a deserved 2-1 home success over Crawley.

There was little to choose between the teams between the two boxes but Scunthorpe were more clinical in front of goal.

Crawley started well and Iron keeper Rory Watson produced a full-length diving save to keep out Joel Lynch's header.

Scunthorpe then began to take control and they broke the deadlock in the 37th minute. A neat move started by the impressive Hayden Hackney cut Crawley open and George Francomb turned Ross Millen's low cross into his own net.

Scunthorpe added a second well-worked goal 10 minutes after the break when Myles Hippolyte's pass released Jake Scrimshaw and the Bournemouth loanee rounded keeper Glenn Morris to score his second goal of the season, and first since August.

Kwesi Appiah scored his third goal in four games from Francomb's cross with 17 minutes left to make it 2-1 but Scunthorpe hung on.



RYAN AND CANAVAN STRIKE IN IRON FIGHTBACK
Iron 2-1 Crawley Town
Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Scunthorpe earned back-to-back home wins for the first time since 2010 as they overcame Crawley Town in February 2013, backing up a win over Portsmouth the midweek prior.

After a goalless first half, the visitors went in front when former Scunthorpe favourite Matt Sparrow struck from close range.

The Iron were back on terms midway through the second period when Jimmy Ryan smashed home from close in.

Scunthorpe completed their comeback 12 minutes from time as Niall Canavan rose highest at the far post to head home.

MADDEN HITS DECISIVE GOAL IN 2015
Iron 2-1 Crawley Town
Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Paddy Madden's strike helped United overcome fellow strugglers Crawley Town as both attempted to avoid relegation from League One.

Ryan Dickson accidentally deflected Jordan Clarke's shot past his own keeper to gift Scunthorpe an early lead.

Madden's second-half close-range strike looked to have put the visitors out of sight.

Izale McLeod's scored a consolation as his side slipped to 20th in the table.
