Sky Bet League 1 round-up

27 September 2014

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

Leaders Bristol City overcame a second-half Milton Keynes Dons fightback to win 3-2 on Saturday and maintain their five-point lead at the top of Sky Bet League 1.

A seventh win in 10 league games seemed assured when Kieran Agard had netted twice in the first half but goals from Dean Bowditch and Benik Afobe levelled things up after 73 minutes.

But the Dons - who slip from second to fourth - were level for less than two minutes as Wade Elliott's second goal of the season ensured all three points for the Robins.

Peterborough United moved up to second with a first win in four games. Conor Washington popped up with the decisive goal on the stroke of half time in the 1-0 win against Fleetwood Town.

Sheffield United recovered from falling behind in the 83rd minute to secure a 2-1 win over Gillingham, with Jamie Murphy scoring the winner seven minutes into stoppage time.

Leyton Orient began life without Russell Slade by squandering the lead twice in a 3-2 defeat to Rochdale, who had Ashley Eastham sent off.

Jobi McAnuff and Romain Vincelot both put the O's ahead, but Matt Done and Peter Vincenti replied on each occasion before Done popped up again to net the winner as Chris Dagnall's first-half penalty miss proved costly.

Oldham Athletic also came from behind twice to record a 3-2 victory over Scunthorpe United. The Latics are now unbeaten in six games after Danny Philliskirk scored twice in the second half.

Coventry City suffered their first defeat since returning to the Ricoh Arena as Tom Clarke and Joe Garner scored in the space of five second-half minutes to earn Preston North End a 2-0 away win.

Barnsley have now gone five games without a win as Swindon Town made it 10 goals in three outings with a 3-0 win at Oakwell.

Marvin Elliott scored his first goals for Crawley Town, netting twice to earn the Reds a 2-0 win at home to Yeovil Town.

Colchester United scored three quickfire goals to consign Crewe Alexandra to a seventh defeat of the season. Freddie Sears, Rhys Healey and Sanchez Watt all netted in the opening 22 minutes of the second period to secure a 3-0 win.

Bradford City and Port Vale shared a 1-1 draw, as did Chesterfield and Notts County, while Walsall recorded a 3-0 win over Doncaster Rovers.
