Burton’s League 1 season continued with a defeat against Shrewsbury at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday.

Damien McCrory’s first half goal had seen Burton one-up but second half goals saw Shrewsbury come from behind to win it two-one in injury-time.

Andy Mangan, as he made the most of a mistake from Brewers ‘keeper Jon McLaughlin, had Shrewsbury level with Shaun Whalley winning it for the Shrews in injury-time to see the lead at the top of the table lost as a three-match winning run ended.

These were the other results.

Saturday 23rd January 2016
Barnsley 6-1 Rochdale
Burton 1-2 Shrewsbury
Chesterfield 1-2 Millwall
Crewe 1-1 Wigan
Fleetwood 0-0 Doncaster
Gillingham 2-1 Peterborough
Oldham 0-1 Bury
Port Vale 1-1 Bradford
Scunthorpe 3-0 Colchester
Sheff Utd 1-1 Swindon
Southend 3-0 Coventry
Walsall 1-1 Blackpool

Looking at these results the stand out ones have to be the wins for Barnsley (6-1) and Southend (3-0) over Rochdale and Coventry respectively.

Southend’s own play-off bid was given a major boost with a three-nil win over a 10-man Coventry side as the Shrimpers ran out convincing winners over the Sky Blues at Roots Hall.

Without a doubt the performance of the weekend has to be the six-one win secured by Barnsley at Oakwell with the recent improvement by the Tykes continuing as they thrashed Rochdale!
