Scunthorpe’s League 1 season continued with a one-one draw with Wigan at Glanford Park on Saturday.

The New Year started with another point for Scunthorpe, this time though a Luke Williams goal had the Iron ahead with Michael Jacobs soon drawing Wigan level.

David Mirfin ensured a point when he cleared a Jason Pearce effort off the line.

You can’t look much further, when going through these results than the seven-one thrashing dished out by Chesterfield to Shrewsbury at the Proact Stadium with new boss Danny Wilson enjoying a great afternoon! Coventry were another high scoring winning side, keeping their promotion bid going with a five-nil win at struggling Crewe.

A good number of impressive three-nil wins with Gillingham, Doncaster and Walsall gaining the points by such winning margins over Bradford, Southend and Walsall, respectively.

Burton’s one-nil win over Blackpool, coupled with Walsall’s heavy (and surprise) defeat at the Banks’s Stadium saw the Brewers return to the top of the League 1 table with Gillingham’s win at Priestfield taking them up to 2nd.
