The League 1 season continued with some games played during midweek.

Sheffield United’s promotion isn’t yet secured but the moved closer to this, and winning the title, with another win – Bolton are set to finish runners up.

Coventry and Chesterfield are virtually down but who will join them?

Here’s a round-up of the League 1 action from the other games.


Tuesday 4th April 2017 – LEAGUE ONE
Charlton Athletic 0-2 Milton Keynes Dons 19:45
Rochdale 3-0 Port Vale 19:45
Shrewsbury Town 1-2 Millwall 19:45

Wednesday 5th April 2017 – LEAGUE ONE
Oxford United 1-3 Fleetwood Town 19:45
Sheffield United 2-0 Coventry City 19:45

Charlton’s relegation concerns were deepened by defeat against MK Dons. But on an emotional night at the Valley, as the club paid tribute to season ticket holder PC Keith Palmer who was killed in the recent Westminster attacks, it put things into perspective… The Addicks remain four points above the drop zone following a 2-0 victory for Karl Robinson’s former side.

Three first half Rochdale goals saw them profit from Port Vale going down to 10 men midway through the opening 45 minutes. Dale’s 3-0 win keeps their hopes alive of getting back into the top six but defeat for Vale saw them drop to within a place of the bottom four – two points ahead of Shrewsbury.

Shrewsbury’s relegation concerns deepened when Millwall inflicted a fourth straight defeat. But back-to-back wins have boosted the Lions’ play-off bid as this 2-1 win. Millwall are now level on points with sixth place Southend.

An added time goal saw Southend’s four game winning run end in defeat against Bolton. The Shrimpers remain in the play-off but on goal difference, ahead of Millwall, alone. The Trotters’ sixth win in a nine game unbeaten run saw them close to within three points of leaders Sheffield United – 10 points clear of Fleetwood in third.

Oxford’s play-off hopes all but ended following a 3-1 defeat from promotion hopefuls Fleetwood. The U’s cancelled out an earlier Cod Army opener but two late goals kept the third place side seven points off Bolton and prevented Sheffield United’s promotion being confirmed.

Championship promotion isn’t quite confirmed for Sheffield United yet despite the 2-0 win over Coventry, Fleetwood’s win prevented this. The Blades are all but promoted and moved six points clear of title rivals Bolton whereas the Sky Blues remain bottom, 13 points from safety.
