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

First, second and third remain as they were however Scunthorpe’s draw saw Bradford close in with Bury lose more ground after a defeat. Without a match Coventry dropped to bottom again.

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

Leaders Scunthorpe had to settle for a point against Northampton (who remain in a play-off place) in a one-all draw at Glanford Park with this enough to keep the Iron top.

But Bradford’s two-nil win over Shrewsbury took the Bantams to within a point of the League 1 leaders to consolidate second place whereas the Shrews dropped down to second-bottom with only Coventry (who didn’t play) below them.

Having lost the opening match to kick-off the weekend Bury missed the chance to keep in touch with the top two with Peterborough’s three-one win moving Posh to within touching distance of a play-off place.

A poor run of form was arrested by Bolton with a one-nil win at Swindon putting the Trotters up to fourth with the Robins remaining above the relegation zone on goal-difference following this defeat at the County Ground.

Southend though remain in the bottom four and dropped to 22nd, below Oldham who won two-one at Gillingham, after a three-nil defeat at Rochdale with this win enough to move Dale into a play-off place.

Wimbledon moved further away from trouble with an impressive three-one win at Oxford on Sunday with MK Dons’ disappointing start to life back in League 1 continuing with a home defeat against Port Vale, that one-nil win for Vale taking them into the play-offs and up to fourth.
