LEAGUE ONE REVIEW: AUGUST 15

17 August 2015

The Iron claimed their first win of the season as they defeated Crewe 2-0 at Glanford Park on Saturday.

A brace from Paddy Madden guided Mark Robins’ side to a comfortable victory, moving United up to seventh in the table after the second round of matches.

Coventry sit at the top of League One after cruising to a comprehensive 4-0 win at Millwall, with Adam Armstrong instrumental once again.

The on-loan Newcastle striker netted either side of Ruben Lameiras’ first goal for the Sky Blues, before Jim O’Brien wrapped it up in the second half.

Rochdale are the only other club to have won twice and they enjoyed a straightforward afternoon as they won 2-0 at Blackpool.

Donall McDermott opened the scoring midway through the second half and then Ian Henderson grabbed a second to seal it late on.

Swindon came from two goals down to salvage a point at Bury, with Anton Rodgers scoring a sublime free-kick in the last ten minutes.

Tom Pope and Danny Mayor had put Bury in a commanding position, but they continue to wait for their first win back in League One.

Gillingham followed up their impressive start by getting a point at Port Vale, with Bradley Dack’s strike cancelled out by Louis Dodds.

Walsall continued their good start with a 2-0 win at newly-promoted Southend as Tom Bradshaw and Sam Mantom were both on target.

The final play-off spot in the early table is occupied by Oldham, who won 1-0 at home to Fleetwood thanks to Danny Philliskirk’s strike.

It was a better weekend for Sheffield United as they bounced back from their opening day defeat to win 2-0 at home to Chesterfield.

Young striker Che Adams netted both the goals for the Blades as they climbed off the bottom of the League One table.

Peterborough also picked up their first points of the season as Marcus Maddison inspired them to a 2-1 victory against Colchester.

The midfielder found the net twice, but Macauley Bonne had given the visitors the lead just minutes before Maddison turned the game around.

Bradford find themselves bottom despite picking up a point against Shrewsbury. Billy Clarke’s effort was cancelled out by a Tyrone Barnett strike.

Barnsley also got off the mark for the season, winning 1-0 at home to Burton as Conor Hourihane’s penalty proved to be the difference.

Sunday’s match between Wigan and Doncaster ended goalless as the Latics secured their first point since their relegation from the Championship.

That result means that every team in League One has at least one point on the board, with two sides claiming maximum points after two games.

Next up for the Iron is a trip to Wigan on Wednesday night, where Mark Robins’ side will be looking to follow up their excellent display against Crewe.

If you cannot make it to the DW Stadium, keep track of the action by tuning into the club’s official social media channels or the official website, with live updates available from kick-off.
