Past meetings

The Blues have only met Scunthorpe twice in their history, winning on both occasions. The ties came in a Leagu Cup clash over two legs in the 1997/98 season under Howard Kendall. EFC won the first match at Scunthorpe 1-0 thanks to a goal from midfielder Gareth Farrelly.

In the second leg at home, Everton were comfortable victors as Graham Stuart, John Oster and Danny Cadamarteri backed up a Nick Barmby double for a 5-0 win on the night and a 6-0 aggregate triumph.
