LEAGUE ONE REVIEW: SEPTEMBER 26

28 September 2015

The Iron slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Southend on Saturday, despite Gary McSheffrey giving Mark Robins’ side the lead.

The midfielder curled home early on, but Michael Timlin levelled for the hosts and they went on to win thanks to Ben Coker’s strike.

The result sees the Iron drop into the bottom four, meanwhile Southend climb up to 12th after back-to-back victories.

Elsewhere in League One, Burton Albion remain top after a dramatic 2-1 win at Chesterfield, netting in the last minute to secure victory.

Sam Hird had put the hosts in front, only for Stuart Beavon equalised moments into the second half, before Jerome Binnom-Williams won it for Burton in injury time.

Walsall are second, although they only get a point against Crewe, who remain in the bottom despite a second game without defeat.

Striker Tom Bradshaw put the high-flyers ahead after just three minutes, but Ben Nugent grabbed an equaliser for the visitors to ensure a share of the spoils.

Gillingham still hold on to third spot, despite falling to a 2-0 defeat at Barnsley. Ben Pearson and Sam Winnall were on target for the hosts.

It was a similar story for Coventry as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Bury, who moved into fifth and a place behind the Sky Blues.

Leon Clarke netted both of the hosts’ goals and Reda Johnson’s header would prove to be just a consolation for Coventry.

Sheffield United moved into the final play-off spot with a 3-1 win against Yorkshire rivals Doncaster, leaving Rovers winless in four and in the relegation zone.

Cameron Stewart cancelled out Craig Basham’s opener, only for Connor Sammon and Billy Sharp to give the Blades a comfortable victory over ten-man Doncaster.

Millwall grabbed their first home win of the season, with a comfortable 3-1 victory over play-off chasing Rochdale.

Goals from Jimmy Abdou, Shaun Williams and Steve Morison helped the Lions on to a much needed first win at the Den.

Graham Westley picked up a win in his first game as Peterborough manager as he watched his new side come away from Bradford with a 2-0 victory.

Lee Angol and Chris Forrester scored in quick succession to give the Posh the points and help to lift them up to 14th.

Blackpool’s woes continued as they lost 2-0 at Shrewsbury, meaning they continue to be rooted to the bottom of the League One table, with Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro getting both goals.

Colchester made it three wins on the bounce though as George Moncur and Callum Harriot helped them to a 2-1 win at Swindon, who have now lost three in a row.

Meanwhile, Oldham and Wigan played out a 1-1 draw, and Port Vale came away from Fleetwood with a 2-1 victory.

Next up for the Iron is the first of back-to-back home games, starting with the visit of Walsall, with Mark Robins’ side looking to bounce back after defeat at Southend.
