Port Vale’s League 1 season continued with a draw against Scunthorpe at Vale Park on Saturday.

A Scunthorpe goal from Jack King was cancelled out on the stroke of half time when AJ Leitch-Smith, with his sixth-goal in seven-matches, levelled it up in a one-one draw.

Michael O’Connor almost won it for Vale but his effort hit the post.

These were the other results.

Gillingham 0-3 Burton
Oldham P-P Millwall

Sunday 13th December 2015
Sheff Utd 1-0 Coventry

Looking at these results, with some postponements seen, the stand out ones have to be the wins for Burton, Blackpool and Sheffield United.

As league leaders Burton beating promotion rivals Gillingham isn’t too surprising as such but to win three-nil having lost boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to QPR a few days earlier was a stunning reaction.

But Blackpool recording a shock one-nil win at Wigan (who rarely lose let alone at home) at the DW stadium tops that!

Many wouldn’t be surprised by Sheffield United beating Coventry as such, but given the form the Blades have been on of late (compared to the Sky Blues) this one-nil win at Bramall Lane is something of a surprise.

Vale are back in action at the weekend with a game against Walsall at the Banks’s Stadium.
