The Iron made it five games unbeaten, but had to settle for a point after Shrewsbury scored a late equaliser in Saturday’s 2-2 draw.

Kyle Wootton and Paddy Madden had cancelled out Sullay Kaikai’s opener, and it looked like United would claim all three points.

Deep in injury time, the hosts equalised as Jean-Louis Akpa-Akpro’s cross evaded everyone and found the bottom corner of Luke Daniels’ net.

Elsewhere in League One, Burton took another step to securing promotion to the Championship, beating Fleetwood 2-1 to pull nine clear of third.

Mark Duffy grabbed a brace either side of Wes Burns’ strike, with the visitors reduced to ten men too following Bobby Grant’s straight red.

Second placed Wigan maintained their unbeaten run, but had to settle for a 3-3 draw at bottom side Colchester, despite leading twice.

Yanic Wildschut and Ryan Colclough gave the Latics the lead, only for Alex Gilbey, Elliot Lee and George Moncur to hit back for the U’s.

The League One high fliers got their leveller in the last minute though, with Will Grigg pouncing from close range.

Gillingham ended a run of four without a win, cruising to a 3-0 win against Crewe, who find themselves in the bottom four and seven points from safety.

Goals from Dominic Samuel, Josh Wright and an own goal from Jon Guthrie secured a comfortable victory for the third placed side.

Walsall also ended their poor run as they came from a goal down to win 4-1 at Chesterfield, who were also reduced to ten men.

A James O’Connor own goal put the hosts ahead, but Tom Anderson returned the favour before Sam Mantom’s brace and Jordy Hiwula’s strike sealed the victory.

Millwall’s automatic promotion hopes took a dent as they squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Swindon.

Lee Gregory and Steve Morison got them off to a great start, but Nicky Ajose and Michael Doughty grabbed a dramatic point for Swindon.

The final place in the top six belongs to Bradford as a Jamie Proctor brace helped them to a 2-1 win over struggling Doncaster.

They climbed into the top six after Barnsley slipped to a 2-0 defeat at home to Southend, with Jack Payne and Michael Timlin on target.

At the bottom, just like Colchester and Crewe, Oldham also slipped to a defeat as they lost 3-0 to Sheffield United.

Goals from John Brayford, Ryan Flynn and Billy Sharp secured a convincing win for the Blades, who still have play-off aspirations.

Fourth bottom Blackpool also suffered defeat as Marc-Antoine Fortune grabbed the only goal for Coventry as they moved up to seventh.

Meanwhile, Port Vale came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Peterborough, with late goals from JJ Hooper and Louis Dodds securing an unlikely victory.

Rochdale beat Bury 3-0 thanks to Nathaniel Mendz-Liang’s brace and a goal from Ashley Eastham, which helped them into the top half.

Next up for the Iron is the visit of Chesterfield, with Nick Daws’ side hoping to extend their good run and push for the top six.
