Nolan gives Hurst a high five at the top

Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! -

SHREWS­BURY pulled five points clear at the top of League One with a 2-1 win at Old­ham.

The in-form Ste­fan Payne slid in to open the scor­ing be­fore Craig Davies equalised and then sent Eoin Doyle through to hit the post.

Jon Nolan’s well-taken goal sealed the points for Paul Hurst’s men be­fore Doyle was sent-off in stop­page time.

Sec­ond-placed Peterborough were con­tro­ver­sially held to a 1-1 draw against Wal­sall.

The Posh trailed 1-0 to Erhun Oz­tumer’s first-half goal and while they drew level through Gwion Ed­wards’ mishit scis­sor­kick, they were left seething af­ter a Ju­nior Mo­rias goal was dis­al­lowed for off­side.

Black­pool were quickly into their stride against Ox­ford, Kyle Vas­sell (above) open­ing the scor­ing from 25 yards in the sixth minute and Cal­lum Cooke also on tar­get from long range 10 min­utes later. De­spite James Henry’s late con­so­la­tion, Vas­sell struck again to make it 3-1.

Ro­main Vincelot headed the only goal mid­way through the first half for Brad­ford against a Rother­ham team who had Joe Mat­tock sent-off in stop­page time.

Nick Pow­ell scored but then went off in­jured be­fore half-time in Wi­gan’s 3-0 win over Bris­tol Rovers.

Brett Pit­man was on tar­get twice as Portsmouth en­joyed a largely com­fort­able af­ter­noon, beat­ing Fleet­wood 4-1. Gilling­ham moved out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone with their first win of the sea­son, 1-0 over Charl­ton as Tom Eaves turned in Max Eh­mer’s low cross. MK Dons came out on top in a pul­sat­ing five-goal home en­counter with Rochdale, helped by two goals form Gboly Ariy­ibi.

Southend scored twice in the first five min­utes of the sec­ond half to draw

2-2 with Northamp­ton. The Cob­blers had led through Leon Bar­nett’s ef­fort and Matt Crooks’

20-yard curler but Jason Demetriou and An­thony Wordsworth lev­elled mat­ters.

Kwesi Ap­piah’s solo goal was enough for AFC Wim­ble­don to win 1-0 at Black­burn while Bury and Ply­mouth drew 0-0.
