The Iron slipped to a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Blackpool on Saturday, with Brad Potts netting the only goal.

Despite a flurry of chances, Colin Doyle was in great form and denied Mark Robins’ side an equaliser, meaning Potts’ first half goal was the decider.

Blackpool climbed up to 22nd and find themselves now just a point off the Iron who sit in 19th place following Saturday’s defeat.

Elsewhere in League One, Jake Hessenthaler’s goal maintained Gillingham’s unbeaten start with a 1-0 win at home to Doncaster.

Coventry moved behind the Gills into second after they produced a turnaround to win 2-1 at Burton Albion, although there was controversy.

Marcus Tudgay cancelled out an Aaron Martin own goal before Romain Vincelot tapped in the winner, which Burton strongly felt was offside.

The Brewers remain in the play-offs and are joined by Walsall, although Dean Smith’s side lost their unbeaten record to Bury.

Craig Jones netted the only goal and an inspired performance from Rob Lainton ensured that Bury held on for all three points.

Rochdale also find themselves in the top six, although they had to settle for a 1-1 draw after Jamille Matte grabbed a point for Fleetwood late on.

Swindon are just outside after an impressive comeback to win 3-1 at Crewe, who slipped to the bottom of League One and are still winless.

Adam King gave them the lead though, however Tom Smith, Wes Thomas and Nicky Ajose all found the net to give the visitors the points.

The game of the day came at the Proact Stadium where Wigan scored three times in the last nine minutes to beat Chesterfield 3-2.

Dan Gardner and a Leon Barnett own goal had the hosts in control, but the latter netted at the right end to set up an interesting finale.

Craig Davies’ penalty with three minutes left looked to have salvaged a point, but Jordy Hiwula struck in injury time to give Wigan an unlikely win.

Dave Robertson became the first manager to lose his job this season after his Peterborough side fell to a 2-1 defeat at Southend.

Adam Barrett and Noel Hunt were on target for the hosts, with Marcus Maddison’s goal proving to be no more than a consolation for Posh.

Shrewsbury picked up their first victory of the campaign as they beat Barnsley 2-1 as Jordan Clark struck late on to grab a dramatic win.

Oldham lost their unbeaten start to the season as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Bradford. Reece Burke and Devante Cole netted for the visitors.

Meanwhile, the games between Sheffield United and Colchester, and Port Vale and Millwall were called off due to international call-ups.

Next up for the Iron is the visit of Coventry next Saturday, with Mark Robins’ side hoping to return to winning ways.
