Three matches played in League One last night and the results of all three games leave the table tighter than ever, particularly at the wrong end of the table where all three relegation-threatened teams in action picked up three points apiece.
TMUOL1 (© Alan Tate) were desperate to improve on their current record of only 1 win in 9 games and to revive their faltering promotion challenge and were at home to a Gillingham side in 18th place and without an away win all season. At the end of 90 minutes the Gills had picked up 7 bookings and a red card as well as all 3 points and had moved up to 12th position on 38 points, 1 point ahead of the Glovers. The Jacks, now on 1 win in 10, were booed off the pitch by their loyal supporters. Former Glover Darren Way began the game for Swansea, but was replaced at half-time. What a waste!
Bottom club Franchise FC gave themselves reason for hope by beating under-achieving Nottingham Forest 1-0 at home, that man Izale McLeod notching his 12th goal of the season. The Dons are still bottom on 27 points, 2 behind Rotherham on 29, and are by no means cut adrift as yet. Swindon did themselves a huge favour by beating fellow strugglers Walsall 1-0, a Jamie Cureton goal the difference between the sides. The Robins leapfrogged Rotherham to go to 22nd on 31 points, Hartlepool (33 points) currently reside in the final relegation place. The Glovers (37) drop a place to 14th following Gillingham's win at the Liberty Stadium.
