Sky Bet League One Round-Up

5 September 2016

After round six of the Sky Bet League One 2016/17 campaign it is newcomers Bolton Wanderers that sit on top of the table.

Bolton came from behind to earn a draw at home to Southend United, who had took the lead in the opening minutes of the game and now sit in the relegation zone following the draw.


Below the league leaders, in second place are Bradford as they were unable to capitalise on Bolton dropping points, as they themselves drew at home to Millwall 1-1.


The Lions are currently a point behind Stuart McCall’s side, level with Fleetwood Town, who condemned Coventry City to their third defeat of the season and they currently occupy one of the relegation places.


Four sides below are level on ten points, Scunthorpe United who didn’t play this weekend, Peterborough United moved up with a 2-2 draw against Swindon who dropped down to 12th, Port Vale suffered a 4-1 defeat at Bury, with the hosts moving into 9th and Gillingham lost to Sheffield United, giving The Blades back to back wins.


Elsewhere, Northampton Town got their first win of the season on Sunday with a 3-2 win against MK Dons, as they moved up above their opponents and sit behind Charlton Athletic, who didn’t play this weekend.


Chesterfield suffered a third straight defeat against AFC Wimbledon, with the visitors moving out of the relegation places.


The Spireites are joined on seven points alongside Shrewsbury Town, who came from behind to beat Oldham away from home 3-2 and Oxford United as they beat bottom of the table Rochdale 1-0.


The other two sides left in the league were Walsall and Bristol Rovers, but they didn’t play this weekend.
