Vital View - League One - 30th September 2017

Vital View - League One - 30th September 2017

The League One season continued with the latest round of games played over the weekend.

Victory at second bottom Gillingham for Blackburn was enough to take Rovers - pre-season favourites to win the title - into the top six for the first time this term.

A positive reaction was seen by Bradford as they saw off Doncaster to move up to third.

Bristol Rovers, recovering from a midweek defeat at Portsmouth, who trumped Plymouth to the League Two title last season, added to the Pilgrims' misery with a win at the Memorial Stadium to leave Argyle at the foot of the table.

Having collected a first win in three - inflicting a third defeat in four on Fleetwood - Charlton moved up to fifth a place behind Peterborough after Posh suffered a heavy home defeat against Oxford.

Meanwhile, Oldham made it successive victories - after beating Peterborough - with a win at Pompey, which was overshadowed by some ugly scenes inside and outside of Fratton Park.

Early season pacesetters Shrewsbury, four points clear, maintained their advantage over Wigan - who themselves won against Walsall - after a victory over Scunthorpe, who dropped out of the top six as a result.

Here's a round-up of the League One results.
