Just the three matches in League One this evening.
Scunthorpe United travelled to Vale Park and came away with their fifth away win in the league this season. The Iron took an early lead on ten minutes, and when Vale's Jason Talbot was shown a straight red card for a two footed challenge on Richard Hinds three minutes later it might have been game over. Brian Laws was so incensed at the tackle he conducted a one man pitch invasion, and another red card was issued as the Scunthorpe manager went to the stands for his trouble. However the home side fought back, more legitimately, and equalised on 17 minutes through Jeff Smith as Scunny keeper and an outfielder left the ball to each other and a free kick from wide curled straight in. A second half strike by Cleveland Taylor from 20 yards settled the destination of all three points. Not good news for the Glovers, the victory moving Scunthorpe on to 44 points and from 16th up to 12th. Port Vale remain on 46 points in 11th.
AFC Bournemouth started the evening in 15th on 41 points. Visitors Barnsley could have gone second with a win, but had to be satisfied with a draw which moved them up from 5th to 3rd. The Tykes should have been out of sight by half-time, such was their dominance, but only managed a single goal from Steven McPhail on 20 minutes. The Cherries fought back in the second period to share the spoils when Adam Griffiths headed in a corner in the 70th minute. Bournemouth move up one place.
At Earth Stadium (Belle Vue) Doncaster Rovers and Brentford fought out a 0-0. The visitors stay in 6th, Donny up one to 9th.
