Sky Bet League 1 round-up

16 August 2014

We take a look at the weekend's action in Sky Bet League 1

Bristol City already look the team to beat in Sky Bet League 1 after following up an away win at Sheffield United by coming from behind to edge out Colchester United 2-1 at Ashton Gate on Saturday.

Aaron Wilbraham added to last week's strike at Bramall Lane by bagging a brace in the second half after George Moncur had put the visitors ahead.

Peterborough United are also off to a perfect start after Kyle Vassell added a double strike to Kenny McEvoy's opener in an entertaining 3-2 home win over Milton Keynes Dons.

Chesterfield were another team to make it two straight victories in this division when edging out Rochdale 2-1 in a match where all three goals were scored from the spot, with Eoin Doyle converting two penalties for the Spireites and Ian Henderson replying deep into stoppage time for Dale.

Crawley Town are on maximum points too thanks to a 1-0 home win over Swindon Town, as Izale McLeod maintained his hot streak with another successful spot-kick after Louis Thompson was sent off for bringing down the striker.

Fleetwood Town complete the list of teams setting the pace after Jamie Proctor's strike in first-half stoppage time proved enough to claim victory at Notts County.

Preston North End sent out a message that they are a team to fear, with Joe Garner netting twice in a 4-0 romp at Scunthorpe United, but Nigel Clough has a job on his hands to lift Sheffield United after the pre-season favourites were left with no points from two games when going down 1-0 away to Coventry City due to a Bob Harris own goal.

Barnsley came from behind to prevail 2-1 at Crewe Alexandra thanks to second-half goals from Leroy Lita and Martin Cranie, while Port Vale were also away winners when Ben Williamson, Tom Pope and Carl Dickinson struck in a 3-1 success at Doncaster Rovers, who had Harry Forrester sent off.

Joe Martin and Danny Kedwell scored as Gillingham beat Yeovil Town 2-0, Leyton Orient won 3-1 at Oldham Athletic as Darius Henderson, Dave Mooney and Kevin Lisbie netted, while Walsall drew 0-0 with Bradford City.
