Scunthorpe’s League 1 season continued with another defeat against Southend at Roots Hall on Saturday.

The pressure, which he was already under, was cranked up on Robins with Scunthorpe suffered another defeat at Southend came from behind to beat the Iron two-one.

It was a great start for Scunthorpe when McSheffrey (8) curled us into an early lead but Southend were level by half time when Timlin (36) scored.

Scunthorpe were denied another goal by the post, when top goalscorer Madden struck the frame of the goal, with Coker (75) winning it for Southend late on seeing the Iron drop into the relegation zone in 21st.

These were the match highlights.

The other results this weekend were as follows:-

Saturday 26th September 2015
Barnsley 2-0 Gillingham
Bradford 0-2 Peterborough
Bury 2-1 Coventry
Chesterfield 1-2 Burton
Fleetwood 1-2 Port Vale
Millwall 3-1 Rochdale
Oldham 1-1 Wigan
Sheff Utd 3-1 Doncaster
Shrewsbury 2-0 Blackpool
Southend 2-1 Scunthorpe
Swindon 1-2 Colchester
Walsall 1-1 Crewe

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Peterborough and Colchester, a few others make you sit up and take interest – even these two weren’t overly surprising as such – but there weren’t really any major surprises as such really?

Graham Westley, who will be under pressure to do a job as his appointment appears to have been made to a ‘mixed response’ at Peterborough, started with a win for Posh! A two-nil win at Bradford saw the home sides unbeaten run ended and not only got Westley off to a winning start but also kept an unbeaten run that Posh had been on going!

I’m not sure we should be ‘surprised’ by another Colchester win really! This win at Swindon makes it three in a row after wins at Sheffield United and the win at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against previously unbeaten Gillingham last weekend. This time the U’s saw off the Robins two-one to continue the unbeaten run, which extends to four-matches now.
