Millwall’s League 1 season continued with a draw against Colchester at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday.

A nil-nil draw at Colchester saw Millwall drop points, and slip to sixth in the table, but the Lions are still four-points ahead of seventh placed Barnsley in the final play-off place.

Lee Gregory had a chance, which he couldn’t take when well placed before Millwall ‘keeper Jordan Archer was forced into a good save from Elliot Lee.

Gregory and Chris Taylor both had further chances with Blackburn loanee Taylor seeing his effort defected onto the post late on as the Lions had to settle for a point against a side set to drop out of League 1 whereas we’re looking to get out of it by going up!

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 2nd April 2016
Blackpool 2-0 Southend
Bradford 1-0 Scunthorpe
Burton 1-1 Bury
Chesterfield 4-2 Port Vale
Colchester 0-0 Millwall
Gillingham 0-0 Coventry
Peterborough 3-0 Crewe
Rochdale 2-2 Doncaster
Sheff Utd 2-0 Walsall
Shrewsbury 1-5 Wigan
Swindon 1-1 Fleetwood

Wigan (five-one) with a crushing win at Shrewsbury will now, having extended their unbeaten run too, be hot favourites to go on and win the title ahead of Burton (one-one) after the Brewers dropped more points in a draw with Bury at the Pirelli Stadium.

They remain the top two and ‘the ones to catch’ though.

A finish in the play-off places was strengthened by Bradford (one-nil) with a win over Scunthorpe with this now looking as though this will be what Walsall (two-nil) will have to accept following defeat at Sheffield United with Gillingham (nil-nil) doing likewise with them held at home by Coventry.

Colchester’s (nil-nil) survival hopes weren’t helped too much by this draw at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against Millwall, who also look a good bet for the play-offs now.

Staying up though is something Blackpool (two-nil) increased hopes of achieving with a Bloomfield Road win over Southend, who will now almost certainly fail to get into the top six with Crewe’s (three-nil) own survival hopes all but over after the defeat at Peterborough.
