Coventry top the pile at the end of Week Two in League One after they thrashed Millwall at The Den as Rochdale also maintain a 100% record. We bring you, the review of the weekend’s League One fixtures at The Sports Lowdown.

Millwall 0-4 Coventry
Coventry moved to the top of the table with a convincing win over Millwall. Lions striker Lee Gregory had an early penalty saved before Coventry took the lead through Adam Armstrong who lobbed the keeper spectacularly to give the visitors an early advantage. Ruben Lameiras doubled their advantage with a neat finish at the near post. Then Armstrong scored his second of the game, cheekily chipping the keeper in a 1v1 situation. Coventry’s successful afternoon was rounded off by Jim O’Brien to complete move top of the pile in League One.

Blackpool 0-2 Rochdale
The first half of the game saw both sides have chances, and both keepers were busy, working hard to keep the scores goalless going into the break. Rochdale’s breakthrough came when Donal McDermott latched onto a ball over the top and drilled the ball past the keeper. Their second came late on when Ian Henderson capitalised on a defensive error to hand Rochdale their second win of the campaign.

Port Vale 1-1 Gillingham
Two first-half goals ensured that the points were shared in this encounter at Vale Park. The visitors were awarded an in-direct free-kick for a backpass in the 17th minute, and Bradley Dack took full advantage and give the Gills the lead. Port Vale levelled when Louis Dodds finished from just outside the box in the 35th minute. The match ended that way in a 1-1 draw.

Bury 2-2 Swindon
It was a point each at Gigg Lane after Swindon earned a point late on. Tom Pope rose well in the fourth minute to give the hosts the lead. Their lead could have been doubled in the first half, but Leon Clarke hit the post with his penalty. But their second came just after the break when the ball came out to Danny Mayor, who curled his shot into the far corner. Swindon hit back twenty minutes later Fabien Robert before Anton Rodgers secured a point for the visitors with a spectacular free-kick with seven minutes to go.

Southend 0-2 Walsall
Walsall maintained their unbeaten record with a win over new-boys Southend. Tom Bradshaw gave the away side an early lead with a cool finish eight minutes in. Walsall then cemented their winning position thanks to a goal from Sam Mantom that secured the three points.

Oldham 1-0 Fleetwood
Home side Oldham picked up all three points on the day despite Fleetwood having countless chances at Boundary Park. Oldham moved up to fourth spot with the win, and the victory came courtesy of a goal from Danny Philliskirk, scoring his second goal of the season. A good win for Oldham, but Fleetwood will be disappointed not to come away with anything from the game.
