Football League: Broom helps sweep Plymouth to top of League One | Football League


Plymouth moved top of League One after edging past Burton. Ryan Lowe’s sit above Wycombe on goal difference following their 2-1 win at Home Park.

Conor Grant opened the scoring after 15 minutes to put the hosts in charge and Ryan Broom swept in his side’s second just before half-time. Lucas Akins pulled a goal back for the visitors but they could not find a leveller and sit 10th.

Wycombe breezed past Gillingham 2-0, having effectively sealed victory inside the opening seven minutes. Garath McCleary and Brandon Hanlan scored early, with Hanlan also hitting the post in the second half, as Gareth Ainsworth’s side made it seven straight home league wins.

Vadaine Oliver missed a first-half penalty for Gillingham, who sit two points above the bottom four. Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe are a point ahead of third-placed Wigan having played a game more.

Lee Gregory’s second-half winner gave Sheffield Wednesday a 1-0 victory over Bolton. The striker finished off Jack Hunt’s low cross at Hillsborough to leave the Owls a point adrift of the top six.

Ipswich climbed to 14th after a 2-1 win over fellow strugglers Shrewsbury. Conor Chaplin’s 23rd-minute opener put the hosts ahead only for Shaun Whalley’s fine 20-yard drive to level five minutes later.
