Sky Bet League 1: Boxing Day review

26 December 2015

Walsall went top of Sky Bet League 1 on Boxing Day after securing a 1-0 victory away at Millwall.

The Saddlers rose to the summit after previous leaders, Burton Albion, had their match with Bradford City postponed.

Gillingham also kept their end of the bargain to remain third - coming from behind to beat Swindon Town 3-1 - and Coventry City and Peterborough also prevailed, against Port Vale and Chesterfield.

With Wigan Athletic's game also falling victim to the weather, Southend United went level on points with them after beating Colchester United 2-0.

Elsewhere, Scunthorpe United triumphed 1-0 at Doncaster Rovers and Shrewsbury Town shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw with Fleetwood Town.
