Weekly Sky Bet League One Round Up

25 April 2016

Port Vale made it three wins on the bounce with an emphatic 4-1 victory over Rochdale. Here we take a look at the weekend’s other results in Sky Bet League One.

A 2-0 home loss to Scunthorpe United was the final nail in the coffin for Graham Westley as he was sacked by Peterborough United.

The Iron took the lead through a Ricardo Santos own goal before Tom Hopper wrapped up the points, and sealed Westley’s fate, with a close range finish.

The result leaves Scunthorpe just a couple of points off the play-off places with the Valiants heading to Glanford Park this weekend.

Wigan consolidated their lead at the top of the table with a resounding 4-1 win over Southend.

Chris McCann gave the Latics the lead before a Will Grigg brace ensured the points would remain in Lancashire.

The result leaves Gary Caldwell’s side nine points clear of third placed Millwall and fourth-placed Walsall, although the Saddlers have a game in hand.

Colchester were resigned to relegation after they were thumped 3-0 at home to Burton Albion.

Lucas Akins bagged a hat-trick after the U’s had been reduced to ten men following the sending off of Joe Edwards on just 17 minutes.

Doncaster, meanwhile, made sure they would fight another day with a 2-0 win over Coventry City at the Keepmoat.

Tommy Rowe and Andy Williams got the goals to put Donny on 45 points, three behind Fleetwood, with two games to go.

Shrewsbury Town took a huge stride towards League One safety with a shocking 3-2 win at play-off hopefuls Gillingham.

Sullay Kaikai, Andy Mangan and Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro gave the Shrews the lead three separate times as they claimed a valuable win in Kent.

Elsewhere Sheffield United and Barnsley finished goalless, Millwall won at Bury, Fleetwood and Blackpool drew, Bradford thumped Walsall 4-0, Oldham beat Crewe by the odd goal and Swindon were winners over Chesterfield.
