Well, well, well. Wanderers win on the opening day. No goals conceded. Zero. Zip. Nada. All in all, a solid albeit somewhat fortunate, 1-0 victory against a decent side at this level in Sheffield United, who always seem to be in and around the play-offs in previous seasons. Let's have a look at how m everyone else got on in their curtain raisers this weekend.
Fellow relegated sides MK Dons and Charlton had mixed fortunes in their first games of the season: the Dons won 1-0 away at Shrewsbury, whereas Charlton fell 2-0 away to Bury in something of a shock at Gigg Lane, Neil Danns getting himself on the scoresheet with a penalty in the first half.
Newly promoted Oxford drew 1-1 at home to Chesterfield, and AFC Wimbledon were defeated 3-1 by many punters' favourites for the title this year, Walsall. Reigning League Two champions Northampton drew 1-1 at home to Fleetwood.
Elsewhere for our North West teams, Oldham were hammered by Millwall 3-0 at the New Den in Stephen Robinson's first game in charge in a game that banished a few demons from last season's play-off final for The Lions. Rochdale, meanwhile, were beaten 3-2 at home by Hayden White and Peterborough.
Elsewhere, life after Phil Parkinson began with a goalless draw for Bradford at home to Port Vale, Scunthorpe convincingly defeated Bristol Rovers 3-1 at home, despite the away side leading for almost an hour at Glanford Park. Phil Brown and Southend were beaten 3-1 at home to Gillingham, and last season's league favourites Coventry were shocked by Swindon, losing 1-0 at the County Ground.
This week's League One winners: has to be Scunthorpe this week, for coming from behind to win 3-1 with late goals. Bury and Millwall also deserve a mention for their convincing home wins.
This week's League One losers: Rochdale. Led twice in the game, but lost out to an 89th minute winner. A sickener to start the new season.
