Remembering past matches played by the Iron on January 9...

Former and current Iron players born on this day: George Kerr (1943), Craig Davies (1986), Harry Lewis (2004).

Two goals from Garry Thompson inspired the Iron to a 4-1 Championship victory at Derby On This Day in 2010.

Gary Hooper broke the offside trap to slot home and Thompson doubled the lead with a low finish from 14 yards.

Kris Commons' deflected strike gave Derby cause for optimism and they soon had an effort cleared off the line.

But Michael O'Connor broke down the right to allow Thompson to stroke home and Jonathan Forte bundled in a fourth.
