Scunthorpe’s League 1 season continued with a heavy defeat against Blackpool at Bloomfield Road on Saturday.

Not only were Scunthorpe beaten they were thrashed as Blackpool moved out of the relegation zone with the Iron losing five-nil!

Tom Aldred headed Blackpool ahead after only two-minutes with a Brad Potts brace seeing them three-up in half and hour. David Norris made it four in the second half with Danny Philliskirk rounding off the win in the final 10-minutes.

These were the other results.

Saturday 16th January 2016
Blackpool 5-0 Scunthorpe
Bradford 1-0 Oldham
Bury 2-3 Walsall
Colchester 1-2 Sheff Utd
Coventry 0-2 Burton
Doncaster 2-2 Gillingham
Peterborough 0-0 Southend
Rochdale P-P Fleetwood
Shrewsbury 0-3 Barnsley
Swindon 4-3 Crewe
Wigan 3-1 Chesterfield

Sunday 17th January 2016
Millwall 3-1 Port Vale

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Blackpool (no denying that), Burton and Barnsley against Scunthorpe, Coventry and Shrewsbury respectively.

A promotion battle between Burton and Coventry saw the Brewers ensure top spot was secured with a two-nil win at the Ricoh Arena to deny the Sky Blues the chance of, potentially, going top!

The recent resurgent of Barnsley continued with a win over relegation rivals Shrewsbury with the three-nil win at Greenhous Meadow for the Tykes helping to ease their fears but makes relegation a more realistic prospect for the Shrews.
