League One round-up Matchday 7

Peterborough United resurrected their season with an emphatic win over a lacklustre Oldham Athletic. Erhun Oztumer was the orchestrator from the midfielder as Soulymane Coulibaly and Lee Angol both grabbed season turning braces, the latter’s of which was on his debut for the club.erhun oztumer

A late double from Tom Bradshaw assured Walsall would stay in the top two for another two weeks. As do Gillingham after Bradley Dack struck 10 minutes from time.

Crewe are now rock bottom of the division after Aiden O’Brian inspired a performance from the Lions with his first hat-trick for the club. Much has been said about Millwall’s ongoing lack of strikers, but O’Brian’s treble surely will have silenced some critics. Colchester United remain in the drop zone, but may have been plummeted at the bottom should Charlie Raglan not steered into his own net two minutes into added time.

Three of the four sides currently occupying the play-of spots were confined to defeats this afternoon. Burton Albion were the only victors as they triumphed over 6th placed Rochdale at the Pirelli. A single goal from Paddy Madden was enough to see off the Sky Blues. And Leon Clarke scored for the second week running to complete a pulsating win for Bury over Sheffield United at Brammall Lane.

Uche Ikpeazu’s last gasp winner meant that Port Vale bulldozed their way into the top 12 following their stunning display against Wigan. The Latics came from two goals behind before the Watford loanee pounced to send Vale Park into ecstasy.

In the final two games of the day, Nathaniel Knight-Percival was the scorer as promoted sides Shrewsbury and Southend clashed at Roots Hall. The points were shared between Bradford and Fleetwood in the 1-1 draw, with both sides now needing to kick on and produce some play off form in the coming weeks.
