Scunthorpe’s League 1 season continued with a defeat against Rochdale at Spotland on Saturday.

After battling back to get level Scunthorpe conceded again late on and that meant the Iron slipped to a two-one defeat at Rochdale.

Hooper had gone close before Van Veen hit the crossbar but it was Rochdale that took the lead through Bunney (67) at the midway point of the second half.

Wallace’s (76) header looked to have earned Scunthorpe a point until Vincenti (85) won it five-minutes from time!

Sun 20th September 2015
Bradford 2-2 Sheff Utd

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Colchester, Crewe and Burton.

Colchester, who hadn’t won in League 1 prior to a win at Sheffield United on Tuesday, followed up that three-two win with a two-one win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against a Gillingham side that, going into this game, hasn’t lost in the league and were top of the table!

Against a Shrewsbury side, that had started to find some form, Crewe collected all three-points in a one-nil win at Greenhous Meadow to end the Shrews’ run and also move the Alex off the bottom of League 1.

Depending on what way you look at it Burton’s win at Swindon was possibly the result of the weekend? The Brewers beating Swindon one-nil, as the did at the County Ground, was a good result in itself with this win taking last season’s League 2 Champions to the summit in League 1 for the first time in their history!
