SIX GAMES PLAYED AS COVID STRIKES LEAGUE ONE

League One review from weekend 18th of December featuring - Ipswich Town, Sunderland, Wigan Athletic and Oxford United


It wasn’t quite the full fixture list League One usually has, with just six games surviving the latest COVID outbreak.

Wigan faced off against play-off hopefuls Oxford in the game of the weekend. An early two goal lead inside 32 minutes courtesy of Keane and Power put Wigan in the drivers seat before two goals either side of half-time from Oxford Williams and Taylor drew them level. McClean converted a late winner to secure all 3 points for Wigan and keep them just 2 points behind top of the table Rotherham. There were plenty of positives in this one for Wigan with Whatmough, McClean, Power, Massey and Keane all scoring over 7 from fans. It was a three way tie for man of the match, with Power, McClean and Keane all scoring 7.98’s.

Ipswich’s new boss watched on from the stands as his new side took on Sunderland at Portman Road. It was an entertaining affair and one that will have McKenna feeling positive as he takes charge of his new side in the coming weeks. James Norwood gave the Tractor Boys the lead in front of a packed out house at the Suffolk club, before Nathan Broadhead grabbed an equaliser in the second half. Both goal scorers were top of the ratings as fans gave Norwood a 7.65 and Broadhead a 7.98.

Results

Cambridge United 0-1 Rotherham United

Ipswich 1-1 Sunderland

Morecambe 0-0 Fleetwood Town

Oxford United 2-3 Wigan Athletic

Plymouth 1-0 Charlton Athletic

Shrewsbury Town 3-1 Cheltenham
