We take a look at all the essentials from our 1-0 home victory against Oldham Athletic at the weekend.

The Iron won their fourth league game in a row courtesy of a second half volley from Scott Wiseman.

The visitors ought to have been in the ascendancy at the interval, but United came out fighting in the second half and were twice denied by the linesman in quick succession at the start of the second period. First Kevin van Veen's effort was deemed not to have crossed the line despite replays and images from the game showing the ball rebound back into play off the stanchion. Moments later it was Tom Hopper who was denied as he got the slightest of touches on Josh Morris' inswinging free-kick only for an offside flag to be raised.

Wiseman, who hit the underside of the bar after a mazey run only minutes before, controlled a half-cleared corner and volleyed an effort in off the post to give Scunthorpe all three points.

Sheffield United moved into second place with a 2-1 win at home to Shrewsbury Town. It's now 13 unbeaten for the Blades and 16 points from the last 18 available. 

Bolton Wanderers are tied with Chris Wilder's side on 24 points after the Trotters picked up a 2-0 win at home to Millwall to move above Bradford City, who lost 3-0 at Southend United. 

Life after David Flitcroft didn't start well for Bury as they fell to a 5-1 mauling at the hands of AFC Wimbledon, making it eight straight defeats for the Shakers. 

The other managerless sides in the division fared better. Charlton won 2-0 at home to Port Vale in their first game without Russell Slade, and MK Dons collected a point at Bristol Rovers. 

Oxford United and Gillingham took steps away from the bottom three with victories. The U's were impressive 4-1 winners at home to Coventry City and the Gills were 2-1 victors away at Walsall.
