Sky Bet League One Round-Up

15 August 2016

A look back at the weekend just gone from League One.

After round two of the Sky Bet League One 2016/17 campaign it is Gillingham and newcomers Bolton Wanderers that sit on top of the table, both with 100% records.

Bolton came from behind to beat AFC Wimbledon 2-1 away from home to end their 495-day wait for an away win and Gillingham took a comfortable 2-0 lead early in the second half, before Tom Pope pulled one back for Bury.

Below the league leaders, there are seven teams all on four points, including the three teams that fought hard for a play-off place last term; Millwall, Walsall and Bradford, as well as Scunthorpe United, Chesterfield, Port Vale and MK Dons.

Bradford City beat Peterborough United away from home by the solitary goal. MK Dons and Millwall drew after an action packed first half at Stadium: MK. Walsall were held to a goalless draw at Boundary Park. Kevin van Veen completed Scunthorpe’s comeback with a wonder goal to earn a point at Highbury, Chesterfield won comfortably against the visiting Swindon Town, and Port Vale eased to victory against the travelling Southend United.
League One new-boys Northampton Town sit 15th following two league games, after drawing against Charlton Athletic at The Valley. 

Further down the table, Oxford United lost to Bristol Rovers away at the Memorial Stadium. Billy Sharp rescued a point for Sheffield United in the latter-stages of the first half, as the Blades drew with Rochdale at Bramall Lane and Coventry City and Shrewsbury Town both picked up their first point of the season in a goalless draw at the Ricoh Arena.

AFC Wimbledon and Southend United are the only two teams left in League One without recording any points on the board as we head into the third round of games.
