League One Round-Up

29 January 2017

With the Spireites not in action we take a look at how the other teams in League One fared on Saturday afternoon.

Our next opponents Oldham Athletic, suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to promotion chasing Bradford City.


Romain Vincelot opened the scoring for the Bantams in the 14th minute when he headed in Josh Cullen’s corner, Brian Wilson then levelled matters in the second half, before Rory McArdle secured the victory 14 minutes from time.


There were goals galore at Gigg Lane, as Bury and Walsall played out a thrilling 3-3 draw. James Vaughan continued his impressive run of form, notching the Shakers opening goal in the 22nd minute, while Reece Brown added a second shortly before the interval.


But the Saddlers produced an impressive comeback, with three goals in eight second half minutes. Erhun Otzumer pulled one back in the 71st minute before a Jason McCarthy brace looked to have given the visitors an unlikely win, that was until Tom Soares scored a 94th minute equaliser.


A Keshi Anderson hat-trick was enough for Northampton Town to pile more misery onto bottom club Coventry City, while Billy Boden’s first half effort was enough for Bristol Rovers to see off Swindon Town at the Memorial Ground.


MK Dons moved up to 15th in the table thanks to an impressive 4-0 victory away at Peterborough United. Robbie Nielsen’s men went ahead in the 59th minute through Harvey Barnes, with further goals from Kieran Agard and two from Chuks Aneke completing the rout.


Elsewhere Gillingham and Shrewsbury shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Priestfield Stadium, while Port Vale took the lead twice away at Scunthorpe United, before eventually falling to a 3-2 defeat thanks to Tom Hopper’s 71st minute winner – a result that sent the Iron to the top of the League One table.


In the other matches Charlton Athletic moved up to 11th place after a 2-1 win away at Bolton Wanderers, while Fleetwood Town remain in the playoff places despite drawing 1-1 at home with Southend United.


The weekend's results leave the Spireites in 22nd place, three points behind Swindon in 20th position with a game in hand.
