Chesterfield’s League 1 season continued with a defeat against Swindon at the County Ground on Saturday.

A late Swindon goal saw Chesterfield beaten one-nil, leaving the Spireites still in the relegation battle.

Swindon ‘keeper Jake Kean prevented Jay O’Shea and Lee Novak from making the breakthrough with Gary Little needing to clear and effort off he line from Nathan Thompson with the Robins’ Michael Doughty hitting the post before Yaser Kasim won it on 77-minutes.

The Spireites, four-points off the relegation zone, ended with 10-men when Charlie Raglan was sent off two-minutes from time.

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 23rd April 2016
Sheff Utd 0-0 Barnsley
Bradford 4-0 Walsall
Bury 1-3 Millwall
Colchester 0-3 Burton
Doncaster 2-0 Coventry
Fleetwood 0-0 Blackpool
Gillingham 2-3 Shrewsbury
Oldham 1-0 Crewe
Peterborough 0-2 Scunthorpe
Port Vale 4-1 Rochdale
Swindon 1-0 Chesterfield
Wigan 4-1 Southend

Barnsley’s (nil-nil) draw at Sheffield United saw them move into the final play-offs place ahead of Gillingham (three-two) following a defeat against Shrewsbury, who went into this match in serious relegation trouble.

These two (Barnsley and Gillingham) will now be the sides battling for that final spot.

Wigan (four-one) virtually confirmed a return to the Championship with them still leading the way but Burton (three-nil) continue to push them for the League 1 title after beating Colchester, with this defeat for the U’s confirming their relegation.

A heavy Walsall (four-nil) defeat at Bradford means the Saddlers now look as though they’ll have to join the Bantams in the play-offs, Burton can still be caught though for them to finish second.

Blackpool’s (nil-nil) failure to beat relegation rivals Fleetwood, taking into account their poor goal-difference means they’ll find it tough to escape the bottom four, which is something Doncaster (two-nil) have renewed hopes of managing after the win at the Keepmoat Stadium against Coventry.

It’s set to be one from three of Fleetwood, Blackpool and Doncaster that drop into the basement league.
