A one-nil win at Coventry ensured that Scunthorpe kept a healthy five-point lead at the top of the League 1 table with Bradford up a couple of places into the second automatic promotion spot after a four-nil win at Valley Parade against Rochdale with the Bantams making the most of Bolton not being in action until Sunday.

Port Vale moved into the play-offs after a two-one win over Fleetwood at Vale Park, with Millwall’s four-nil win at the Den over Bristol Rovers not denying them a play-off place but this also continued the Lions’ improved form.

Tim Sherwood’s arrival as Director of Football at Swindon helped them to an instant impact with Charlton thrashed three-nil at the County Ground as a poor season continued whereas Southend’s upturn in form saw them win four-one at Bury.

As is stands, with the one-all draw against Walsall seeing MK Dons drop into the bottom four, they’ll be on for back-to-back relegations with the Championship relegation seeing them now struggling to stay in League 1 this season!

Shrewsbury moved off the bottom on Saturday after a two-nil win at Greenhous Meadow saw Oxford move drop towards the bottom four.

The chance to move back into the second automatic promotion place was missed by Bolton after they were beaten one-nil at Peterborough on Sunday with them dropping below Sheffield United, up to third, and down to fourth.

United’s unbeaten run in the league continued with a four-one win secured over struggling Chesterfield as the reunion of personalities on each side ended with the Blades comfortable winners at the Proact Stadium.
