A one-nil defeat, against an out of form Sheffield United side, was suffered by Port Vale at the weekend.

We’ll see the leaders in action on Monday but from the chasing pack only Wigan (two-one) profited with them looking a good bit for a top two finish by winning at promotion rivals Walsall.

Gillingham (two-one) suffered a surprise defeat to Oldham at Boundary Park but this win has helped boost the Latics’ own survival hopes with Fleetwood (two-one) doing likewise with a win against in-form Scunthorpe at the Highbury Stadium.

It’s looking bleak for Colchester (five-two) at the foot of the table now though isn’t it with a lead lost in a heavy defeat at Gigg Lane to Bury leaving the U’s looking a near certainty to drop into League 2 now you feel?
