Vital View - League One - 2nd September 2017

The League One season continued with the latest round of games played over the weekend.

An early kick off at Valley Parade saw things get underway with Bradford recording a victory over Bristol Rovers.

Meanwhile, from the 3pm games, Blackpool continue the positive adaptation to life back in League One very well. An impressive start to the campaign was ongoing with a win over AFC Wimbledon at Bloomfield Road to sit just outside of the play-off places.

The unbeaten starts for Scunthorpe and Shrewsbury continued with wins at Bury and Gillingham, respectively, being enough to move the Shrews up to second, behind leaders Peterborough - also yet to taste defeat - who were held at Doncaster as Posh dropped their first points of the campaign.

A seven goal thriller at Boundary Park was edged by Charlton, who moved up to third. The Addicks' 4-3 victory left Oldham second bottom and still to collect a point during the season so far.

Here's a round-up of the League One results with one game to take place.
