League One Round-Up (19-August-2017)

<div style='background-color: #005abb;'><a href='' title='news'>headlines</a></div>

What were the latest results in the Sky Bet EFL League One and how has it affected the table?

The weekend started with eight teams still unbeaten after two matches of the season with six of those having a 100% record so far. After the latest set of matches, there are now six teams yet to suffer defeat and four with three wins out of three.

Doncaster Rovers and Scunthorpe United have five points each and sit in 8th and 9th places respectively. Rovers shared the points with a three-all draw at home to Blackpool despite going ahead three times! Scunny earned a close-fought one-nil win against an Oxford United side who were sitting top of League One going into the weekend.

Wigan Athletic jumped two places to the top spot with a two-nil win over basement side Oldham Athletic while Peterborough United remained in second place despite winning two-one against a strong Rotherham United side.

Fleetwood Town are in third place as they once again kept a clean sheet and are the only side in League One who have yet to concede a League goal this season! Their latest victory was a two-nil win over AFC Wimbledon who are now third from bottom.

The other team with a 100% winning record is the surprise package of the season so far, Shrewsbury Town. They had a ding-dong battle with Rochdale but came out on top of a five-goal thriller.

With Bradford City losing one-nil to a previously pointless Blackburn Rovers and dropping out of the top six, Charlton Athletic moved into sixth place after the beat Northampton Town four-one.

That defeat to the Addicks saw the Cobblers drop to 23rd place. They are only held off the bottom spot by alphabetical order. Oldham have an identical record as the Cobblers with both sides having scored just one goal so far with six goals against.

There are three teams with just one point from the opening three matches. Gillingham, without a goal to their name in the League, are just outside the relegation places with a goal difference of -2 which is one better than Rochdale and AFC Wimbledon.

The following are the first set of results in League One:

Bury2 - 3Bristol Rovers
Charlton Athletic4 - 1Northampton Town

Peterborough United2 - 1Rotherham United
Portsmouth1 - 1Walsall
Scunthorpe United1 - 0Oxford United
Shrewsbury Town3 - 2Rochdale
Southend United1 - 1Plymouth Argyle

If it hadn`t been for the poor officials who missed the ball going over the goal line by a couple of feet, Posh would be top of League One. The table at this point in the season is relatively meaningless but it is much happier readin with Posh in the top two rather than languishing in mid-table.
