LEAGUE ONE REVIEW: MATCHDAY 7

15 September 2014

After the Iron lost at Chesterfield, here’s a look a results elsewhere in Sky Bet League One.

Bristol City kept their place at the top of the division with a 3-0 win at home to Doncaster. They went in at the break with a 2-0 lead after Aaron Wilbraham continued his rich vein of form by opening the scoring, before Mark Little capitalized on Cedric Evina’s error to make it two. Summer signing Keiran Agard made it three eight minutes from time after good work from Joe Bryan.

Peterborough slipped to second after Notts County held them to a 0-0 draw at London Road.

Oldham and Gillingham were the only other teams to share the points in a goalless draw at SportsDirect.com Park.

Barnsley lost 5-3 at home to MK Dons, despite a late comeback which gave fans at Oakwell faint hope. Dons were 5-0 up on 80 minutes, with goals from Benik Afobe, Samir Carruthers, Dele Alli, Will Grigg and Ben Reeves. Conor Hourihane bagged twice in five minutes and Devante Cole scored a third for the Reds on 90 minutes. 

Coventry, who visit Glanford Park on Tuesday evening, beat Gary Johnson’s Yeovil 2-1 at the Ricoh Arena. Reda Johnson put the Sky Blues in front before Sam Foley levelled proceedings early in the second period. Simeon Jackson followed up Frank Nouble’s shot to win it for Steven Pressley’s side 22 minutes from time.

Crewe got their first win of the campaign with a 2-1 win at home to Port Vale. George Ray’s close range effort and Vadaine Oliver’s header inside 20 minutes gave Steve Davis’ side the lead before Jordan Slew brought one back on 32 minutes. Crewe held on in a goalless second half for a much needed win to get their first points on the board.

Swindon were 2-1 winners on the road at Bradford. Jonathan Obika’s double helped the Robins come back after Louis Thompson’s own goal put the Bantams in front. Obika’s goals helped Swindon inflict the loss on Bradford, their third home defeat in a row.

Walsall got a very good win at home to Preston as they ran out 3-1 winners. Romaine Sawyers put the Saddlers in front before Joe Garner levelled Simon Grayson’s side. Tom Bradshaw and Paul Downing then netted to get the three points at the Banks’s Stadium.

Sheffield United beat Rochdale 1-0 at Bramall Lane as Jamal Campbell-Ryce’s late goal proved crucial.

Russell Slade’s Leyton Orient, who we host at Glanford Park next Saturday, lost 2-0 at home to Colchester. Colchester played the second half with ten men as captain Magnus Okuonghae saw red on the stroke of half-time. Sanchez Watt and Freddie Sears scored despite being a man down to seal a hard-fought victory at Brisbane Road.

Meanwhile, Izale McLeod's strike 12 minutes from time helped Crawley defeat Fleetwood 1-0.

The next round of fixtures take place on Tuesday evening, when the Iron play Coventry.
