Sky Bet League One Round-Up

30 January 2017

In Sky Bet League One last weekend, we saw a new table topper in Scunthorpe United as Sheffield United were out of action.

Scunthorpe United pushed their way back up to the top of the table after a thrilling end to end 3-2 victory against Port Vale, with Josh Morris, debutant Ivan Toney and substitute Tom Hopper getting on the score sheet.

Sheffield United dropped down a place due to them not featuring all weekend. 

An upset occurred in the top three as Charlton Athletic overcame Bolton Wanderers, 2-1 on Saturday, thanks to first half goals from Patrick Bauer and Nathan Byrne at Macron Stadium. 

Fleetwood Town extended their unbeaten league streak to twelve after a last gasp strike from David Ball cancelled out Anthony Wordsworth's first half opener against Southend United. 

Fifth place Bradford City churned out another three points against bottom of the table Oldham Athletic after Rory McArdle scored the deciding goal 15 minutes from time. 

Rounding out the top six is Rochdale but their game away at AFC Wimbledon was postponed and will have to be played at a later date. 

Bristol Rovers made another positive move towards the play off spots as a goal from Billy Bodin meant they would walk away with a 1-0 win against Swindon Town. 

MK Dons caused an upset on the road as they punished ninth place Peterborough 4-0, with their goals coming from Harvey Barnes, Kieran Agard and a brace from Chuks Aneke giving Robbie Neilson his first away win as Dons' manager. 

Tenth place Millwall were busy in Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round over the weekend as they managed to upset Watford thanks to a goal from veteran Steve Morison. 

Bury managed to earn themselves a point at home against mid table Walsall thanks to an injury time equaliser by Tom Soares in their 3-3 draw. 

Oxford United did not play a game over the weekend dropping them to 14th position in the league.

Justin Edinburgh's Northampton Town breezed past Coventry City in their 3-0 win, meaning they rose to 16th position, amidst the flares and pitch invasion from the fans. 

A draw between Shrewsbury Town and Gillingham was crucial to the Shrews as they gained a position in the league, now two places above the relegation zone. 

Chesterfield, without playing, didn't move in the table as they remain in 22nd place.
