LEAGUE ONE REVIEW: AUGUST 22

24 August 2015

The Iron secured their second consecutive home clean sheet as they drew 0-0 with Millwall on Saturday.

Despite having a host of chances, Mark Robins’ side could not find a way past the Lions’ defence so had to settle for a point.

Paddy Madden missed a penalty as well, but the draw sees the Iron move up to 14th place in the standings after four matches.

Elsewhere in League One, Walsall won the battle between two of the early high flyers, beating Coventry 2-1.

Anthony Forde and Tom Bradshaw put the hosts in a commanding position, although Jacob Murphy’s unstoppable effort did get the Sky Blues a consolation.

Coventry’s slip up gave Gillingham the chance to move top and they did thanks to a 2-0 win at home to Wigan, with the inform Bradley Dack getting both goals.

There was a third successive victory for Sheffield United as they defeated Blackpool 2-0 at Bramall Lane, moving into fourth as a result.

Goals from Billy Sharp and Marc McNulty secured a routine victory for the Blades, but the result left Blackpool at the bottom of the table.

Burton also continued their excellent start to the season, beating Peterborough 2-1 at home to move into fifth spot.

Abdenasser El Khayati continued his excellent scoring run and Stuart Beavon also netted, with Marcus Maddison getting a consolation for the visitors.

The final play-off spot is occupied by Swindon, as they battled to a 1-0 win at Southend, with Fabien Robert grabbing the only goal.

Fleetwood were the big winners of the weekend as they won 4-0 at home to Colchester who slipped into the bottom four.

Jimmy Ryan, David Ball, Jamie Proctor and Jamille Matt were all on target for the Cod Army as they scored four for the second time this week.

There was plenty of entertainment in the game between Crewe and Bury as the sides played out an enthralling 3-3 draw.

Crewe led twice and had been pegged back, and looked like they might lose as Danny Rose fired Bury ahead, only for Brad Inman to equalise late on.

Port Vale earned an impressed 3-0 home victory against Doncaster, maintaining their unbeaten start whilst giving them their first win of the campaign.

Sam Foley, Uche Ikpeazu and Byron Moore all found the net for Vale, but Doncaster’s search for a first win continues.

Oldham and Shrewsbury shared the spoils after a 1-1 draw at Boundary Park. Liam Kelly was on target for the hosts, with James Collins levelling for the visitors.

Meanwhile, there were no goals in the games between Barnsley and Bradford as well as Colchester and Rochdale.

Next up for the Iron is a trip to Colchester where Mark Robins will hope to see his side return to winning ways.
