Scunthorpe 2-0 Crewe
Crewe are still searching for their first win of the season after losing out to Scunthorpe at Glanford Park. Tom Hopper raced down the right and delivered a perfect cross for Paddy Madden, who rose well to score his first of the game. Sean McAllister nearly added a second, but his effort struck the crossbar. It was Madden who would seal the deal in the second half as he nicked a brace with a nice finish across goal. The away side had chances to level at 1-0, but couldn’t take them as they fell to defeat.

Sheffield United 2-0 Chesterfield
The Blades bounced back well after their 4-1 thumping at Gillingham on the opening day with a win here against Chesterfield. Sheffield United took the lead after three minutes when Che Adams latched onto an initial save by keeper Tommy Lee from Conor Sammon’s shot. The home side secured the three points when Che Adams scored his second of the game when a cool finish from twelve yards.

Barnsley 1-0 Burton
It was a win for The Tykes on the afternoon as Burton suffered their first defeat of the season in League One under the management of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. The home side were awarded a penalty in the second half after a rather drab first half. Conor Hourihane stepped up to hand Barnsley their first points of the season.

Peterborough 2-1 Colchester
Colchester took the lead in an encounter where all the goals occurred in the space of four minutes. The visitors took the lead when Gavin Massey raced down the right wing and crossed the ball to Macauley Bonne who converted from close range on the half-hour mark. The comeback began just a minute later when Marcus Maddison scored a spectacular goal from out wide on the half-volley to draw Peterborough level. Maddison then put the hosts in front three minutes later when his strike found the corner from just outside the box, and that gave Peterborough the win.

Bradford 1-1 Shrewsbury
Both of these sides lost on the opening day of the season, so a point each was much needed for both. The Bantams went ahead when Billy Clarke laid the ball off to Steve Davies and he gave it back to Clarke, who finished off the move a cool finish into the roof of the net. Shrewsbury hit back just after the break, and it was a soft goal as Tyrone Barnett’s shot hit a defender and bounced back of him and into the back of the net.

Wigan 0-0 Doncaster
Doncaster played out a goalless draw with Wigan, and the visitors had a good chance to score in the final minutes of the game, but Gary MacKenzie saw his header cleared off the line as the match finished goalless. Both sides will be disappointed with the start in League One and will want to pick up points quickly if they are to challenge for promotion at the end of the season.
