Sky Bet League 1: Matchday 19 review

24 November 2015

Gillingham moved to within a point of the Sky Blues by beating Rochdale 2-0, thanks to goals from Bradley Dack and Adedeji Oshilaja.

Also in the top six, Burton Albion moved up to third after a win 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic, while Walsall were beaten 2-1 at Swindon Town, meaning they will go into the weekend in fourth place.
