The Iron suffered a disappointing defeat on Saturday, losing 2-0 to in-form play-off chasers Bradford City at Glanford Park.

Tony McMahon gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot, with Greg Leigh doubling their lead after the break.

The result keeps Bradford just outside the play-off places, while the Iron have dropped into the bottom half and 14th spot.

Elsewhere in League One, Coventry moved to the top of the table as Jacob Murphy inspired them to victory over Gillingham.

The on loan Norwich winger netted a hat-trick and Ben Turner also scored as they won 4-1 to leapfrog the Gills and go top.

Walsall are close behind the top two, but only drew with Sheffield United. Tom Bradshaw’s goal was cancelled out by Jose Baxter.

League One’s inform team continued their surge up the table, with Wigan making it 11 games undefeated after a 1-0 win over Shrewsbury.

Alex Revell grabbed the only goal for the Latics, moving them into fourth, while Shrewsbury dropped to 20th.

A Jerome Binnom-Williams own goal was all that separated the other two sides in the play-offs, with Bury beating Burton 1-0.

At the bottom, Crewe remain at the foot of the table as they suffered a disappointing 5-1 defeat at home to Peterborough.

Jermaine Anderson’s brace as well as goals from Jon Taylor, Conor Washington and Lee Angol helped the Posh to back-to-back wins.

Blackpool suffered a fourth defeat in a row as Adam Thompson netted the only goal for Southend in a 1-0 home win.

It was also a disappointing day for Swindon as they lost 5-1 to Fleetwood, who leapfrogged them in the process.

Adam El-Abd’s own goal made it 1-0 at half-time, before Fleetwood added further damage to the score in the second half.

Barnsley got an important win though as they beat Oldham 2-1, ensuring manager Lee Johnson’s return to his old club was a happy one.

Conor Hourihane gave them the lead, only for Mark Yeates’ equaliser, but Kevin Long netted with only a minute left to give Barnsley the win.

Meanwhile, Millwall continued their excellent run with an impressive 4-1 win at home to Colchester extending their run to six matches.

Shane Ferguson found the net twice, with Lee Gregory and Byron Webster grabbing the other goals to take the Lions 8th.

Port Vale and Chesterfield played out an entertaining game, with the hosts edging a five goal encounter to win 3-2.

Sam Kelly, Ajay Leitch-Smith and Louis Dodds were on target for the hosts, while Lee Novak and Rai Simons scored for Chesterfield.

Also, two goals in the last ten minutes from Ian Henderson were enough to give Rochdale all three points at Doncaster.

Next up for the Iron is a trip to play-off contenders Bury on Tuesday, with Mark Robins’ side hoping to bounce back after defeat on Saturday.
