Bury’s League 1 season continued with a defeat against Scunthorpe at Glanford Park on Tuesday.

A two-one defeat was suffered by Bury against an in-form Scunthorpe side that would fancy a play-off place if the season went on for another two or three-matches longer.

Luke Williams put Scunthorpe into the lead on 19-minutes before Kyle Wootton added to this early in the second half leaving Bury with it all to do.

Tom Pope headed Bury back into the game just past the hour but the Shakers couldn’t find and equaliser with Kelvin Etuhu sent off in injury-time for his second bookable offence.



Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played in midweek….

These were the other results.

Tuesday 19th April 2016
Barnsley 1-0 Peterborough
Burton 1-1 Wigan
Chesterfield 1-1 Doncaster
Coventry 1-0 Bradford
Crewe 1-1 Colchester
Millwall 1-0 Fleetwood
Rochdale 1-1 Gillingham
Scunthorpe 2-1 Bury
Shrewsbury 1-2 Sheff Utd
Southend 0-1 Oldham
Walsall 1-1 Swindon

A top of the table battle between Burton and Wigan (one-one) at the Pirelli Stadium saw both retain the automatic promotion places, the Latics leading the way with Walsall (one-one) missing the chance to close in on them when they drew at the Banks’s Stadium against Swindon.

This automatic promotion battle could go all the way!

A play-off battle is also likely to go to the wire but Millwall (one-nil) are almost assured of a place following a one-nil win over relegation threatened Fleetwood.

Bradford (one-nil) dropped points when beaten at Coventry with Gillingham (one-one) just about clinging on to the final place at the moment but Barnsley (one-nil) are right on their coattails after the Oakwell win against Peterborough.

Oldham’s (one-nil) win at Southend leaves them looking good for survival now but Shrewsbury (two-one) are still very much in trouble with that Sheffield United win keeping alive faint, albeit unlikely, hopes the Blades have of a play-off place.

Colchester’s (one-one) draw at already relegated Crewe leaves the U’s almost confirmed as joining them in going down with Chesterfield (one-one) keeping themselves away from trouble whereas leaving Doncaster on the brink.
