Remembering past matches played by the Iron on March 16...

Former Iron players born on this day: Ivan Toney (1996).

Scunthorpe scored an injury-time equaliser to claim a home point against Oldham Athletic in 2021.

Alfie McCalmont's goal early in the second half looked to have secured the win for the visitors, but Iron substitute Jordan Hallam levelled in the third minute of stoppage time.

Scunthorpe dominated the opening 45 minutes as Devarn Green, Alex Gilliead and Junior Brown all forced decent saves out of visiting goalkeeper Laurie Walker.

The Iron also asked the most questions after the break, although they had not had time to get back into their stride when on-loan Leeds youngster McCalmont fired in his sixth goal of the campaign through a crowded penalty area after the hosts could only half clear a corner.

Jordan Clarke almost caught out Walker with a fizzing drive from just outside the centre circle and the Oldham stopper stood firm to later block away a powerful strike from Kevin Van Veen.

Green also came close to equalising in the 73rd minute when his effort from the edge of the box crashed against the crossbar.

Yet just when it looked like Scunthorpe's chance of a point had gone, Brown swung a ball into the box from out on the left and Hallam slid in to fire home for a share of the spoils.
