The Iron lost their four game winning run as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Fleetwood on Saturday.

First half goals from Ashley Hunter and Bobby Grant helped the hosts to victory, although Paddy Madden’s penalty did set up a tense finale.

Elsewhere in League One, leaders Burton missed the chance to extend their lead at the top as they lost to play-off chasing Southend on Monday.

Goals from Anthony Wordsworth, Tyrone Barnett and David Mooney gave the Essex side a 3-1 lead, with Stuart Beavon getting Burton’s consolation.

Wigan beat fellow promotion rivals Walsall 2-1 to move into the second automatic promotion spot, with Yanic Wildschut’s last minute strike winning it.

Conor McAleny had given Wigan the lead, but Sam Mantom levelled and it appeared to stay that way until Wildschut pounced.

The Latics also climbed above Gillingham, who suffered a 2-1 defeat at relegation threatened Oldham – their fourth game undefeated.

Gillingham took the lead through Doug Loft, but goals from Curtis Main and Jonathan Forte completed the host’s turnaround.

Millwall continued their good form with their sixth win in eight, beating Peterborough 3-0 at the Den to move fifth.

Steve Morison netted twice, with Lee Gregory grabbing the other to move above Coventry who were not in action at the weekend.

At the bottom, Colchester’s winless run continued despite taking a 2-0 lead at Bury, but they went on to lose 5-2.

Chris Porter and George Moncur put the U’s in command, but Tom Eastman’s red card changed the game and the hosts rallied to victory.

Goals from Ryan Lowe, Craig Jones and an Andrew Tutte hat-trick completed an impressive turnaround to give Bury a second consecutive victory.

Crewe suffered defeat to relegation rivals Chesterfield, who pulled themselves a point clear of the bottom four with a 3-1 win.

Strikes from Sylvain Ebanks-Blake and Lee Novak got them off to a great start, with Connor Dimaio sealing it in the second half following Zoumana Bakayogo’s consolation.

Blackpool are now just a point above the relegation zone as they suffered a late blow against Swindon to lose 3-2.

Tom Aldred and Danny Philliskirk looked to have earned them a point, but Nicky Ajose completed his hat-trick late on to win it for the hosts.

Meanwhile, Ashley Fletcher’s goal was enough to help Barnsley to a derby win against Doncaster, who have lost four in a row.

Joe Bunney netted a brace as Rochdale twice led at Bradford, only to draw 2-2 thanks to Rory McArdle and Steven Davies goals.

Sheffield United also won, with Billy Sharp netting the only goal for the play-off hopefuls against Port Vale.

Next up for the Iron is the visit of Oldham to Glanford Park, with United hoping to bounce back with three points against the League One strugglers.
