Scunthorpe’s League 1 season continued with a three-one win against Colchester at Glanford Park on Saturday.

Three-goals in eight second half minutes saw Scunthorpe, following the sacking of Mark Robins, to victory with Tom Hopper opening the scoring on the hour. Two-minutes later Paddy Madden made it two with Madden making sure of the points on 68-minutes.

These were the other results.

Saturday 23rd January 2016
Barnsley 6-1 Rochdale
Burton 1-2 Shrewsbury
Chesterfield 1-2 Millwall
Crewe 1-1 Wigan
Fleetwood 0-0 Doncaster
Gillingham 2-1 Peterborough
Oldham 0-1 Bury
Port Vale 1-1 Bradford
Scunthorpe 3-0 Colchester
Sheff Utd 1-1 Swindon
Southend 3-0 Coventry
Walsall 1-1 Blackpool

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Barnsley (6-1), Shrewsbury (2-1) and Southend (3-0) over Rochdale, Burton and Coventry respectively.

The league leaders, replaced by Gillingham, saw a three-match winning run ended with Burton beaten two-one at the Pirelli Stadium as Shrewsbury came from behind to win in injury-time to dent the Brewers’ title hopes but boost the Shrews’ survival hopes.

Southend’s own play-off bid was given a major boost with a three-nil win over a 10-man Coventry side as the Shrimpers ran out convincing winners over the Sky Blues at Roots Hall.

Without a doubt the performance of the weekend has to be the six-one win secured by Barnsley at Oakwell with the recent improvement by the Tykes continuing as they thrashed Rochdale!
