Sheffield United’s League 1 season continued with a win against Chesterfield at the Proact Stadium on Saturday.

It’ll take some effort for United to get back into the play-off race with the three-nil win at relegation threatened Chesterfield almost certainly coming too little too late.

But it was something for us to cheer if nothing else!

The lead was taken on four-minutes when loanee Alex Baptiste was able to score from close range with Chesterfield ‘keeper Tommy Lee seeing his clearance fall to Che Adams who finished into the empty net for his 11th-goal of the season to double the lead before the break.

Billy Sharp completed the win ahead of the hour to see United close the gap on the top six to eight-points, but as said this is too little too late.

Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 16th April 2016
Chesterfield 0-3 Sheff Utd
Burton 0-0 Barnsley
Colchester 1-4 Peterborough
Coventry 2-1 Millwall
Crewe 2-3 Scunthorpe
Doncaster 3-1 Wigan
Fleetwood 1-1 Oldham
Gillingham 0-2 Port Vale
Rochdale 3-0 Blackpool
Shrewsbury 1-1 Bradford
Swindon 0-1 Bury
Walsall 1-0 Southend

Burton (nil-nil) missed the chance to close in on the leaders when held by Barnsley, who are still seeking a play-off place, but the Brewers retain second place behind Wigan (three-one) who were surprisingly beaten by relegation threatened Doncaster, who gave their slim chances of staying up a boost.

The Gillingham (two-one) defeat to Port Vale leaves the Gills holding onto the final play-off spot.

Colchester (four-one) are strong favourites to join Crewe in going down with the fading chances of a miraculous escape dented by the loss at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against Peterborough.

Crewe are gone, Colchester and Doncaster likely to join them with it the final relegation spot that’s very open at the moment.

With it currently Blackpool (three-nil) holding this after the defeat at Rochdale leaving them two-points off Shrewsbury (one-one), who drew with Bradford, and Fleetwood (one-one), who drew with Oldham, with the Latics a further point on from Pools.
