Sky Bet League One Round-Up

25 October 2016

After a high scoring week in Sky Bet League One, is it still Scunthorpe United who take the top spot.

League leaders Scunthorpe managed a dominating 3-0 performance away from home against Chesterfield. The game at the Proact Stadium saw goals from Josh Morris, Kevin van Veen and Sam Mantom.

Bolton, who rose to second place on Monday, won their first game at Gigg Lane since 1929 after two Zac Clough penalties saw them triumph over Bury.

Third place, Bradford, and fourth place, Sheffield United, faced off in an exciting 3-3 draw. The score line at half time was 1-1 and four second half goals saw both sides come away with a point.

Bristol, who endured a six-goal thriller last week, performed much better on Saturday against Oldham as their on-loan duo Charlie Colkett and Jake Clarke-Salter ensured them a 2-0 victory at Boundary Park.

Wimbledon fought their way back into the top six after a solitary goal from Tom Elliott was enough to continue the Dons unbeaten streak, which is currently on eight games.

Vale, who dropped down to 7th, produced a second half comeback to earn a point at home against Oxford United. Goals from Regino Cicilia and debutant Ryan Taylor cancelled out Oxford’s first half strikes from Chey Dunkley and Daniel Crowley.

Northampton added to Shrewsbury’s problems this season as they produced a comprehensive performance away from home to win 4-2, keeping the Shrews bottom of League One on ten points.

Rochdale, who dropped to ninth, lost for the second game running as their game finished 2-0 to Coventry at the Ricoh Arena. The goal scorers for the home side were loanee Dan Agyei and Andre Wright.

After a disappointing performance, last week, Walsall wanted to make up some ground in the table against Swindon, which they managed to do. Winning the game 2-0 meaning they rose to 12thplace.

Fleetwood’s recent winning form was ended after poor discipline at the back saw them concede two first half penalties, both scored by Lee Gregory. While Fleetwood’s Ashley Hunter scored a 25-yard strike in the second half, it wasn’t enough to earn them a point at the Den.

Southend came away with a convincing victory against MK Dons at the weekend, meaning that the Dons have now dropped to 19thplace in the league, only one point above the relegation zone.

Finally, Charlton and Gillingham faced off in a mid-table clash but neither of them could capitalise, leaving them both with a point. Nicky Ajose’s last minute penalty cancelled out Bradley Dack’s first half goal.
