The League 1 season continued with the latest round of matches played over the weekend.

Scunthorpe stay top with Bradford up to second as Northampton’s long unbeaten Sixfields run ended. Managerless Coventry’s win took them off the bottom, where Oldham slipped.

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other matches played.


Sat 1 Oct 2016 – League One
Wimbledon 2-0 Gillingham 15:00
Bolton 0-2 Oxford Utd 15:00
Bury 1-2 Scunthorpe 15:00
Charlton 0-1 Rochdale 15:00
Chesterfield 0-1 Bradford 15:00
Fleetwood 1-1 Sheff Utd 15:00
Northampton 2-3 Bristol Rovers 15:00
Oldham 0-2 MK Dons 15:00
Port Vale 0-2 Coventry 15:00
Shrewsbury 1-1 Swindon 15:00
Southend 1-1 Peterborough 15:00
Walsall 2-1 Millwall 15:00

The top of the table battle at Gigg Lane saw Scunthorpe’s impressive start to the season continue with this two-one win over Bury keeping the Iron top and seeing the Shaker drop out of the automatic promotion places with Bradford’s one-nil win at Chesterfield taking them up to second.

After such an impressive start a winless run continued for Bolton with them losing to two late Oxford goals in a two-nil defeat at the Macron Stadium.

The two-nil win by Wimbledon at Kingsmeadow against Gillingham saw the Dons move out of the bottom four, which is something both Charlton and Millwall have slipped closer to when many would have expected them to be nearer the top four!

Charlton’s one-nil defeat to Rochdale at the Valley and Millwall’s two-one defeat at Walsall leaves both of these London rivals outside of the relegation zone of goal-different alone and adds to the pressure Slade and Harris, respectively, are under.

It couldn’t have been left much later but Sheffield United’s 95th-minute equaliser at Fleetwood kept the Blades’ unbeaten run going when it looked certain Fleetwood would see them off at the Highbury Stadium, but this ended in a one-all draw.

Oldham’s two-nil defeat against MK Dons at Boundary Park saw them drop to the foot of the table with Coventry’s two-nil win at Port Vale, in the wake of Mowbray parting company with the Sky Blues, taking them above the Latics.
