Vital View - League One - 17th October 2017

Vital View - League One - 17th October 2017

The League One season continued with the latest round of games played during midweek.

Draws were a very common theme on Tuesday evening with no fewer than eight of the games tied.

Blackburn-Plymouth, Bradford-Oldham, Gillingham-Wigan - who lost the leadership as a result, MK Dons-Walsall, Oxford-Charlton, Scunthorpe-Fleetwood and Southend-Peterborough all ended 1-1 whereas Rochdale-Northampton drew 2-2.

AFC Wimbledon's win - a second in a row - over Rotherham ended the visitors' three game winning run and also took the Dons out of the bottom four.

The Doncaster hoodoo over Portsmouth continued as a Keepmoat win prevented Pompey from moving into a potential play off place and also ended the away sides' winning run, which stood at two.

Meanwhile, Shrewsbury's first win in three - the previous two were drawn - came against Bristol Rovers, which took the Shrews back to the top of League One.

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