Fleetwood’s League 1 season continued with a win against Scunthorpe at the Highbury Stadium on Saturday.

A potentially crucial three-points, in Fleetwood’s bid to avoid relegation, was collected with a two-one win against in-form Scunthorpe.

Jimmy Ryan, back from injury, set up Ash Hunter for the first with Fleetwood then two-up before the half hour mark when Bobby Grant added the second.

Scunthorpe got one back through Paddy Madden in the second half from the penalty spot but the Cod Army saw out the win, only a second of the year to boost the survival hopes.

These were the other results.

Southend v Burton 19:45

We’ll see the leaders in action on Monday but from the chasing pack only Wigan (two-one) profited with them looking a good bit for a top two finish by winning at promotion rivals Walsall.

Gillingham (two-one) suffered a surprise defeat to Oldham at Boundary Park but this win has helped boost the Latics’ own survival hopes with Fleetwood (two-one) doing likewise with a win against in-form Scunthorpe at the Highbury Stadium.

It’s looking bleak for Colchester (five-two) at the foot of the table now though isn’t it with a lead lost in a heavy defeat at Gigg Lane to Bury leaving the U’s looking a near certainty to drop into League 2 now you feel?
