sky BET LEAGUE ONE.

CHARLTON 1

BURY 1

KARL ROBINSON expected a bigger contribution from his Charlton substitutes.

The Addicks recovered from Jermaine Beckford's early opener, with a Josh Magennis header, but could not find a late winner.

Boss Robinson said: "We brought on players who did not do enough. We should be sitting here with a win."

Bury boss Lee Clark added: "I thought my side were superb."

FLEETWOOD 2

SOUTHEND 4

UWE ROSLER thinks the sending off of Aiden O'Neill settled the game for his Fleetwood side.

The Fleet's Amari'i Bell had cancelled out Simon Cox's opener when O'Neill was dismissed.

And goals from Stephen McLaughlin, Nile Ranger (penalty) and Jermaine McGlashan followed before Devante Cole's consolation.

Rosler said: "The red card killed us unfortunately."

BRISTOL ROVERS 3

BLACKPOOL 1

BRISTOL ROVERS boss Darrell Clarke described a hard-earned win over Blackpool as being achieved through adversity.

Clarke, who had to shuffle his defence due to injury and suspension, saw his team clinch victory, with late goals from Ryan Sweeney and Ellis Harrison after Billy Bodin had cancelled out Kyle Vassell's opener for the visitors.

"It was a win we had to fight for and, to be honest, I felt we looked a bit leggy in the closing stages," said Clarke. "We had square pegs in round holes."

Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer conceded his side were second best and said: "We began the game so well, but as the first half wore on we stopped playing.

"They played through us too easily for the first goal and the second came from the second phase after a set-piece situation which was disappointing."

OXFORD UNITED 1

WALSALL 2

JON WHITNEY saluted his Walsall striker Tyler Roberts after he scored the decisive second goal against Oxford.

Erhun Oztumer opened the scoring and Roberts made it 2-0 with a fine finish, before Ryan Ledson's penalty in reply for the U's.

Whitney said: "It was good to see Tyler score. He's talented. It's a tough shift."

Oxford boss Pep Clotet added: "We didn't do the basics right."

PLYMOUTH 0

DONCASTER 3

DARREN FERGUSON hopes to use Doncaster's win as a springboard for Tuesday's match against Shrewsbury.

Goals from Andy Butler, John Marquis and Alfie May won the match, while Plymouth lost Sonny Bradley to a red card.

Ferguson said: "It's an opportunity for us to get back-to-back wins, which would be good going into our 10th game of the term."

ROCHDALE 3

GILLINGHAM 0

ADY PENNOCK dismissed talk of quitting Gillingham.

Goals from Ian Henderson, Joe Rafferty and Matt Done won it, while the Gills played the second half with 10 men after Tom Eaves saw red.

Henderson had a spotkick saved and Rochdale boss Keith Hill said: We got the win in the end."

Pennock said: "I'm not a quitter, that is not in my genes."

ROTHERHAM 5

OLDHAM 1

JOHN SHERIDAN expects his Oldham position to come under threat.

Craig Davies cancelled out Michael Ihiekwe's opener, before goals from Kieffer Moore (two), Anthony Forde and Jerry Yates.

Sheridan said: "I'm going to blame myself for picking the wrong players. I'll accept it on the chin, it's my fault."

Rotherham manager Paul Warne said: "I'm proud of the way the lads stuck at it."

NORTHAMPTON 0

BRADFORD 1

NORTHAMPTON boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was left to rue missed chances.

Tony McMahon's free-kick consigned the former Chelsea striker to his first home defeat as Town boss.

Alex Revell and Marc Richards both missed opportunities to equalise.

"I thought there was only one team in it second half," said Hasselbaink.

"We created those two chances and they fell to the right people, to my strikers, and on any other day they score, but it was not meant to be."

Bradford boss Stuart McCall said: "The goal was fit to win any game. We maybe rode our luck."

SCUNTHORPE 2

PORTSMOUTH 0

GRAHAM ALEXANDER praised his Scunthorpe side's game management to secure back-to-back wins.

Goals from Lee Novak and Duane Holmes put the Iron in the ascendancy, before League One's meanest defence took over to ensure they remained in control.

"We showed good discipline and professionalism not to give anything silly away in what was a serious test," said Iron manager Alexander.

Pompey boss Kenny Jackett admitted it was difficult to get a foothold back in the game after the goals, saying: "Scunthorpe got their noses in front during a key period. After that it was very difficult."
