Brewers flying high in League One

Burton Albion top the League One table but face their toughest test of the season to date when they take on Sheffield United on Tuesday.

Burton Albion will look to continue their excellent start to life when they host Sheffield United on Tuesday after making it three wins on the bounce at Chesterfield.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's men went to the Proact Stadium top of the table and by Saturday evening they had extended their lead to three points. Despite going a goal down to Sam Hird's header, the Brewers hit back in the second-half thanks to Stuart Beavon and a 90th-minute winner from Jerome Binnom-Williams.

Burton host Sheffield United at the Pirelli Stadium next in what could be their toughest task of the season to date.

The Blades defeated Doncaster Rovers in their first South Yorkshire derby of the season. Chris Basham gave United the lead before Cameron Stewart equalised for Rovers. Donnie's Gary MacKenzie was then sent off in the first-half just after Connor Sammon had re-established the Blades' lead. Billy Sharp put the icing on the cake for Nigel Adkins' side in the second-half to give United their first win in four league matches.

Second-placed Walsall travel to struggling Scunthorpe United after dropping two points at home to Crewe on Saturday.

Leading scorer Tom Bradshaw gave the Saddlers the lead before Crewe equalised through Ben Nugent. It is now only two wins in five matches for Dean Smith's side whilst Crewe have taken four points from a possible six on the road. The Railwaymen host Southend United, who have three wins out of their last four matches.

Gillingham lost back-to-back matches for the first time under manager Justin Edinburgh as they succumbed to two first-half goals against Barnsley.

Manchester United loanee Ben Pearson drove in from 25 yards whilst Sam Winnall was left alone in the box to tap home at the end of the first half. The Gills are back on home soil, where they have won every match so far, when they take on Fleetwood at Priestfield on Tuesday.

Blackpool's struggles continued as they lost to Shrewsbury Town at the weekend. Two goals in the last 15 minutes from Shrews striker Jean Louis Akpra-Akpro gave Mickey Mellon's side their third win in four matches. The Tangerines have only one win in their last 27 league fixtures in the Championship and League One.

Bury's fine form continued with a 2-1 win over high-flying Coventry City. Former Sky Blues striker Leon Clarke bagged two goals whilst Reda Johnson pulled one back for Tony Mowbray's men. The Shakers sit in fifth place at the moment having managed to maintain their momentum from last season.

David Flitcroft's side travel to Peterborough next looking to add to their four consecutive wins.

Bradford's sketchy start to the season took another downturn on Saturday as they lost to Peterborough United.

Lee Angol and Chris Forrester gave Graham Westley his first win as Posh boss on his debut for the club.

The Bantams travel to Colchester during the week having been dealt a huge blow with the news that summer signing Paul Anderson could be out for the rest of the season with a broken leg.
