IN REVIEW: IRON 0-0 CHARLTON ATHLETIC

21 September 2016

Continuing our brand new web feature, we look at all the essentials from United's goalless encounter with the Addicks.


The Iron drew a blank at home for the first time since March 5 as the spoils were shared against Charlton Athletic.

Chances were at a premium for both sides, with a point-a-piece a fair reflection on proceedings, with United failing to score for the first time in 2016-17.

STALEMATE: Nothing could separate the two sides at Glanford Park on Tuesday evening as United failed to score for the first time this season.



The Iron extended their lead at the summit of League One to two points following a point against the Addicks.

In collecting the point, a run of seven successive victories at Glanford Park came to an end in the first time United have failed to score at home since March 5 when they did all but score in a goalless encounter against Gillingham.

Elsewhere, the rearranged game between Swindon and Bristol Rovers was the only other fixture in the EFL following an abandonment of the original fixture, with Swindon throwing away a one goal lead in the space of a minute. They took the lead after six minutes before Raphael Rossi Branco conceded a penalty which was converted by Matty Taylor before Rossi Branco completed a nightmare sixty seconds by putting through his own net.
