The Iron picked up an impressive victory to make it consecutive home wins with a 2-0 success to Chesterfield at Glanford Park on Tuesday evening.

Niall Canavan and Paddy Madden were both on target again as the Iron saw off the play-off chasing Spireites and moved up to 14th in the League One table.

The Iron are now just five points off the play-off places and still have games in hand over some of the teams above them.

Elsewhere in League One, Bristol City moved five points clear at the top of the table following a 2-0 success at home to Peterborough.

Aden Flint opened the scoring for the leaders in the first half, before Kieran Agard’s goal in the second half wrapped up the result for the Robins. Peterborough are in 10th and four points off the top six.

MK Dons moved into second place after they won 1-0 at Colchester, their first win in four after consecutive defeats to Bradford and Gillingham.

Dele Ali continued his impressive season, scoring the only goal as the Dons moved into the top two at the expense of Swindon Town, with Colchester remaining in the bottom four.

Sheffield United remain in the play-off places after a 2-1 win at Notts County, plus still have a few games in hand over some of the sides around them.

Jamie Murphy gave the Blades the lead, but they were pegged back by Liam Noble’s strike, only for Matty Done to continue his hot streak in front of goal to win it for the visitors.

The final spot in the top six is now occupied by Doncaster as they scored in the last minute to secure a 2-1 win at home to a resurgent Crewe side.

George Ray gave the Alex the lead, but Dean Furman and Ritchie Wellens turned the game around to fire Rovers into the play-offs and give them a third successive win.

In Wednesday’s game, Bradford were 2-0 winners at Leyton Orient, moving closer to the League One play-offs in the process.

James Hanson’s brace secured the victory and lifted the Bantams to within a point of the top six, while Orient are still in the relegation zone.

Next up for the Iron is a trip to promotion chasing Preston on Saturday, where Mark Robins’ side will be looking to build on the impressive wins against Swindon and Chesterfield.
