    1. Only once before have we lost after leading by three goals (since 1950). Name that match.

    2. We have only recovered once to win from a three goal deficit (since 1950). Name that match.

    Correct, M.M. Early 90s. We scored three times in the first half-hour and contrived to lose 3-4.

    Bobby was the recovery match from three down to win against Oldham away in September 1967. Can’t find a match report but I remembered the score and checked out it was correct.🤔

    No, that game was 2-2 at half time IA. You’re in the right era though and it was an away match.

    Oldham win, I was behind the goal and think I can recall a terrific winner from Barry Horstead.

    I remember hearing it come in on the BBC full time results on the radio les. Reason it sticks out in my memory is because as the announcer read out ” Oldham Athletic 3″ my elder brother started laughing but when the ” Scunthorpe United 4 ” came out my brother said ” bloody hell ” . Was funny at the time anyway.

    1st February 1964. Three down after twenty five minutes at Portsmouth, won 4-3 with Ken Hodgson netting a hat trick! Three days earlier we’d lost 7-2 at Southampton, so a rollercoaster ride for any of our fans that had made the trip to the south coast and taken in both games…

    I did consider this Duzi but the bookies would only have paid out on the draw…
