The Iron made it three wins on the bounce and kept their play-off hopes alive with a 2-1 win over Bury.

Goals from Luke Williams and Kyle Wootton helped United to victory, while Tom Pope scored for Bury who finished with ten men after Kelvin Etuhu’s red card.

That means the Iron trail the top six by only four points with just three games left to play, ensuring a tense end to the season.

Elsewhere in League One, Wigan are still top after they drew 1-1 with second place Burton, despite taking an early lead.

Michael Jacobs scored after eight minutes, but Tom Naylor levelled for the Brewers to give them a point although they are now six without a win.

Walsall could not take advantage though as they required a Kieran Morris goal to earn them a 1-1 draw with Swindon, who led through Michael Doughty.

Millwall moved up to fourth, with Steve Morison netting the only goal against a Fleetwood side not yet safe from the relegation zone.

Fifth placed Bradford slipped to a first defeat in six matches as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Coventry, who still hold a slim chance of making the top six.

Andy Rose grabbed the only goal of the game in the second half, with Bradford ending with ten men following Steven Davies’ red card.

Gillingham hold the final play-off spot, but had to settle for a 1-1 draw with a Rochdale side that are just four points outside the top six.

Callum Camps gave Dale the lead, only for Gills defender John Egan to level the score and prevent them dropping out of the play-offs.

Barnsley are just outside and maintained the pressure on those above them with a late winner from George Williams in their 1-0 win versus Peterborough.

Another side in the chasing pack are Sheffield United, who kept up their play-off pursuit with a 2-1 win at relegation threatened Shrewsbury.

Abu Agogo had cancelled Blades striker Billy Sharp’s, but Che Adams won the match midway through the second half to keep their hopes alive.

At the bottom, Colchester look likely to join Crewe in League Two next season after the two sides drew 1-1.

Colchester had led through George Moncur, but Callum Saunders’ late penalty looks likely to condemn them to relegation.

Doncaster are five points adrift of safety as they drew 1-1 at Chesterfield. Gboly Ariyibi cancelled out Rovers’ opener from Tommy Rowe.

Meanwhile, Oldham look to have secured their League One status as Curtis Main netted the only goal in their 1-0 win at Southend.

Next up for the Iron is a trip to Peterborough, where a win would keep Graham Alexander’s side’s play-off ambitions alive.
