It was a Tuesday night that brought with it the 10th fixture of the League One and Two season and with it elation for some but despair for others! In League One Shrewsbury grabbed a late winner to remain unbeaten and in League Two Coventry made it 2 impressive wins on the bounce.


Doncaster Rovers 1-2 Shrewsbury Town

No one, absolutely no one would have believed that Shrewsbury would have made it to 10 games into the season and still been unbeaten, let alone won 8, drawn two yet here we are! An amazing run that continued last night despite being under pressure for much of the second half at Doncaster. Arthur Gnahoua was plucked out of the non-league by Paul Hurst after scoring 16 goals in 16 appearances for Kidderminster last season and he came up with a vital goal in the 94th minute at the Keepmoat to keep the Shrews 4 points clear at the top of League One. They had been behind when Tommy Roe gave Donnie the lead in the 35th minute but Joe Riley equalised for the Shrews just a minute later. Doncaster put the pressure on in the second half but Gnahoua grab the headlines and the winner with a smart finish.

Blackburn Rovers 2-0 Rotherham United

Rovers made light work of Rotherham at Ewood Park with a fast start against a side that struggles on the Road. Ex-Reading man Dominic Samuel hit the woodwork twice inside the first 16 minutes before Antonsson headed home on 26 minutes for the first. Harry Chapman sealed the point with just five minutes left to leave Blackburn sitting in 8th place in League One, one point ahead of Rotherham.

Oldham Athletic 3-2 Peterborough United

Richie Wellens took over caretaker charge and managed to get a victory over high flying Posh. Oldham took the lead through Eion Doyle but were pegged back by a Maddison penalty which was given away by Brian Wilson, who was red carded for his troubles. The 10 men took the lead with ten minutes left when Dan Gardner struck home from 12 yards out and then Doyle grabbed his second 5 minutes later. Peterborough piled forward and pulled one back in the 92nd minute and Oldham defended heroically to grab a vital 3 points.

Swindon Town 1-2 Coventry City

Coventry are starting to show a promise that many of their fans had been hoping for. This win and the last math against Exeter shows that they are a real force in League Two. They fell behind at The County Ground when Norris scored a delightful goal after spinning in the box to finish. Doyle equalised for the Sky blues, tapping home Jodi Jones’ cross on 32 minutes. The winner came from the popular Duckens Nazon. The on loan forward struck from range just four minutes after Dunne had been sent off for the home side after a poor challenge on Doyle.

Exeter 0-3 Notts County

The clash at the top finished with a one sided score line at St James park. Kevin Nolan’s side look really good at the moment. Alessandra gave them the lead after just two minutes with a fine lob. Exeter went close with efforts from Jake Taylor and Lee Holmes but it was County that extended their lead after the break. Jorge Grant converted first from a corner that wasn’t cleared and then he broke the offside trap with 8 minutes left to seal the win for the Magpies.

Wycombe Wanderers 3-2 Crewe Alexandra

Wycombe fought back late on to give themselves all three points at Home Park against a stuttering Crewe. Mackail-Smith gave Wanderers the lead but Chris Dagnall levelled just 3 minutes before half time. The Crewe striker then gave the away side the lead with a silky finish in the 66th minute. The Chairboys turned the game on their head when they equalised with two minutes left with as Harriman finished off a cross from Eze and then 35-year-old former Reading striker Nathan Tyson grabbed the points on time with a ferocious drive from the left flew into the net.
