Chesterfield 0-0 Rochdale
In this top of the table clash, Chesterfield and Rochdale played out a goalless draw, hauling themselves both down the League One table to 8th and 9th. Sylvan Ebanks-Blake came the closest to scoring with his header at the back post, but Dale keeper Josh Lillis was more than equal to it.

Barnsley 0-0 Bradford
Both sides forced some great saves from keepers, and both sides came agonisingly close to scoring in the ninety minutes as the match ended in a 0-0 draw. Marley Watkins came the closest to scoring late on when his effort came back off the upright.

Port Vale 3-0 Doncaster
Vale maintained their unbeaten run this season with a 3-0 win over Doncaster, giving the hosts their first win of the new campaign. Vale were awarded a penalty early on, but Sam Foley’s spot kick was saved by Thorsten Stuckmann. However, it was the same man who put the hosts ahead, heading in from six yards out. Uche Ikpeazu did well down the right before cutting inside and curling a shot into the corner to double Port Vale’s advantage. Byron Moore sealed the victory two minutes from time with a neat backheel.

Oldham 1-1 Shrewsbury
Jonathan Forte came close early on in the piece when he skilfully hit a volley on the turn that crashed against the crossbar. The visitors conceded a penalty early on in the second half when Liam Kelly converted from twelve yards to give the home side the advantage. James Collins capitalised on a defensive error before rounding the keeper to earn the visitors a point.

Scunthorpe 0-0 Milwall
Milwall haven’t won since the opening day, and this continued here. The visitors hit the bar early on before the home side had a Paddy Madden goal ruled out for offside. Scunthorpe had the chance to take all three points, but Madden couldn’t convert his penalty as the points were shared.

Crewe 3-3 Bury
Bury were involved in their second 3-3 draw in as many weeks, this time sharing the spoils at Crewe. The hosts took the lead three minutes in through Adam King. The visitors then failed to capitalise on a major defensive error before they levelled with a Danny Mayor goal. Ryan Colclough put the home side back ahead in scrappy style before Bury drew level again just before the break with a goal Tom Soares. The visitors took the lead for the first time with a goal from Danny Rose. Brad Inman then earned the home side a point with ten minutes remaining.
