Sheffield Wednesday shocked

A Denis Adeniran own goal gave Morecambe a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday to knock Darren Moore’s side off the top of League One.

The Shrimps had the crossbar and Jokull Andresson to thank for their success; Jack Hunt’s first-half looping effort rattled the woodwork before a string of saves from Andresson denied Wednesday their best start to a season for 31 years.


Sunderland go top of the table; Lang sinks Pompey; Ipswich concede in added time to remain without a win

Sunderland top the League One table after beating Wycombe Wanderers 3-1 at the Stadium of Light.

A brace for Ross Stewart and an Elliot Embleton stunner had the Black Cats three up before David Wheeler’s deflected effort in injury time – no more than consolation for Wycombe, who slip to sixth.

Wigan ended Portsmouth’s unbeaten run with a 1-0 victory courtesy of a Callum Lang strike 12 minutes from time.

Tom Pearce’s ball from the left wasn’t cleared, allowing Lang to fire home – the first player to do so against Portsmouth this season.

MK Dons continued their good form with a 2-0 win over Accrington Stanley.

Mo Eisa scored his third goal of the season after a twisting run into the box. Stanley were punished for poor finishing five minutes from the end, when Matt O’Reilly slid the ball home to make certain of the points.

Cambridge maintained their solid start with a 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers.

A neat first-half move resulted in Shilow Tracey sweeping the ball home from the edge of the box to give United the lead. For all Bolton’s pressing, a deflected effort from Josh Sheehan bouncing off the post was as good as it got.

Plymouth and Fleetwood played out a 1-1 draw at Home Park.

Ryan Hardie dispatched a left-foot effort across Alex Cairns to give Argyle the lead before Callum Camps stretched brilliantly to get on the end of a cross from the left to equalize before half time.

Jordan Garrick almost won it three minutes from time but his curling strike cannoned off the crossbar.

Ipswich Town blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 against AFC Wimbledon. A Joe Piggott penalty and Wes Burns’ thunderbolt gave Town what looked to be a comfortable victory.

But a header from Ben Heneghan gave the visitors hope before Jack Rudoni scrambled a 95th-minute equaliser to leave Paul Cook’s winless side in the bottom four.

Rotherham took bragging rights in the South Yorkshire derby with a 2-0 win over Doncaster Rovers.

Michael Smith bagged only his second goal in 15 matches to give Rotherham the lead, before doubling his tally with a well-taken volley after the visitors failed to clear their lines.

Mikael Miller was sent off late on but United were able to hold on for the win.

Cheltenham Town took a surprise lead at Burton; Callum Wright firing low into the corner after a long ball wasn’t properly cleared. But Albion came back strongly; Lucas Akins on the end of a searching cross from the right to make it 1-1.

Scott Flinders produced a fingertip save late on to ensure a point apiece.

A James Henry hat-trick gave free-scoring Oxford United a 3-1 victory over Lincoln City.

Two strikes from 20 yards and a second-half penalty was enough to give Oxford their seventh straight home League win and while Anthony Scully pulled a goal back with a penalty late on, it was too little, far too late.

Crewe suffered their fifth straight defeat without scoring at Charlton Athletic, who ran out comfortable 2-0 winners.

Quick goals from Diallang Jaiyesimi and Jayden Stockley gave Charlton complete control early on. Crewe had chances but Callum McFadzean and Chris Porter were both denied by fantastic saves by Craig McGilivray.

Shrewbury produced a brilliant comeback to overcome Gillingham 2-1 in a game which saw three red cards shown after a melee late on.

Jack Turner had given the Gills the lead but 17 year-old Tom Watson replied with a stunning overhead kick into the top corner. Sam Cosgrove swept home the winner 20 minutes from time.
