We take a look at all the essentials from our 3-0 away victory at Chesterfield at the weekend.

In what was a dominant and productive performance, the Iron responded to midweek defeat with an emphatic 3-0 away win over the Spireites.

Even with what was a one-sided, yet goalless first half, it was Josh Morris who broke the deadlock shortly after half time as his in-swinging free kick evaded everyone en route to the net. 

Kevin van Veen got the second on the hour as he was fed through by Duane Holmes following a striding run from his own penalty area. The Dutchman advanced to then fire between the 'keeper's legs. 

Sam Mantom was off the bench to receive a brilliant ball from van Veen to lot home his first goal for the club and round off a resounding victory for United.

LUCKY THIRTEEN: Josh Morris runs to the travelling supporters after opening the scoring at the weekend.

A six-goal thriller was played out at Valley Parade in the Yorkshire Derby between Bradford City and Sheffield United, where the sides battled out a 3-3 draw. 

Billy Sharp twice gave the Blades the lead but the second-placed Bantams fought back and eventually went in front themselves. 

But Chris Basham converted from a Jon Fleck corner to ensure the visitors claimed a point, and Chris Wilder's men moved up to third in the standings as a result. 

Table-topping Scunthorpe won 3-0 away at lowly Chesterfield, with the EFL's leading scorer Josh Morris getting his 13th goal of the season as the Iron notched a second-half treble. 

Bristol Rovers and AFC Wimbledon are fifth and sixth respectively as both picked up triumphs on the road, at Oldham Athletic and Peterborough United. 

Elsewhere, Port Vale found themselves down by two goals at the break, but strikes from Regino Cecilia and debutant Ryan Taylor earned the Valiants a draw against Oxford United, although they still dropped to seventh. 

At the other end of the table, it's now two victories in a week for Coventry City - the Sky Blues defeated Rochdale 2-0 at the Ricoh Arena to climb up to 21st. 

Managerless Shrewsbury Town remain bottom of the division after they suffered a 4-2 reverse at the hands of Northampton Town.
