Vital View - League One - Saturday 21st October 2017

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

Plymouth recorded only their second win of the season at AFC Wimbledon but it didn't move them off the bottom of the table.

A first win in three for Blackburn came when they beat Portsmouth - now beaten in the last two - at Ewood Park to move back into a play off place.

Wigan are clear of the chasing pack - but still two points behind leaders Shrewsbury who themselves beat Fleetwood - in second after a win at Blackpool as third placed Bradford were beaten by Charlton, moving up to fourth as a result.

A much needed Northampton win came at Gillingham as the Cobblers moved above the Gills and third bottom.

Meanwhile, goal filled games at MK Dons and Oxford saw 4-4 and 3-3 draws against Oldham and Rotherham, respectively.

Here's a round-up of the League One results.

Fine, for a temporary option

Such is his ability Jackett decided to switch Clarke to the problematic left back spot against Blackpool - this isn't a permanent solution for the former Ipswich man though.
