The Iron fell to a 3-0 defeat at relegated Wigan as the hosts recorded their first win of the campaign.

Will Grigg set the Latics on their way, before Donervon Daniels’ goal before the interval and Craig Davies’ second half strike finished the game off.

The result means the Iron have taken three points from as many games and are 15th, while Wigan climbed into the top half and 11th spot.

Elsewhere in League One, Coventry maintained their perfect start by battling to a 3-2 win at home to Crewe.

John Fleck and Adam Armstrong had twice given them the lead, only for Bradden Inman and Marcus Haber scoring to level, but Jim O’Brien netted a winner for the hosts.

Gillingham are second after a turnaround win at Bradford, with Luke Norris and a James Hanson own goal cancelling out the latter’s strike at the right end.

Goals from Andy Taylor and Sam Mantom helped Walsall maintain their unbeaten start, guiding them to a 2-1 win at Rochdale.

Calvin Andrew struck for the hosts, who drop down below their visitors and lose their unbeaten start to the season.

There was also joy on their travels for Chesterfield as they beat Shrewsbury 2-1 as summer signing Sylvain Ebanks-Blake found the net.

The striker gave the Spireites the lead, which was doubled by Sam Morsy, with Mat Sadler getting what proved to be a late consolation.

There were contrasting fortunes for the two sides involved at Bloomfield Road, as Blackpool dropped into the bottom four and Burton climbed into the top six.

Jack Redshaw gave the hosts the lead, but a brace from Abdenassar El Khayati turned the game around for the Brewers.

The game of the day came at Bury, where they were edged out 4-3, despite leading the match on two occasions.

An even first half ended 2-2, but Jamie Proctor and Antoni Sarcevic put Fleetwood in a commanding position, although Danny Rose grabbed a consolation.

Barnsley defeated Millwall 3-2 in an entertaining clash at the Den as Lewin Nyatanga netted in the last minute to grab the points.

Sheffield United made it two wins on the bounce, with Conor Sammon finding the net twice and Jose Baxter also on target in a 3-1 win at Peterborough. 

The Blades climbed above the side that beat them in the play-offs last year, as Swindon could only draw at home to Port Vale.

Fabien Robert’s strike was cancelled out by the visitor’s Uche Ikpeazu. Anton Rodgers then restored the lead, only for Sam Foley’s last minute penalty to grab Vale a point.

Meanwhile, there were 0-0 draws in the games between Doncaster and Southend, and also Colchester and Oldham.

Next up for the Iron is the visit of Millwall on Saturday, with Mark Robins’ side hoping to bounce back in front of the excellent Glanford Park crowd.
