Shrewsbury’s League 1 season concluded with a defeat against Swindon at the County Ground on Sunday.

Thankfully survival had already been secured for Shrewsbury as the season ended with a three-nil defeat at Swindon.

Swindon took the lead on half time when Nicky Ajose scored from the penalty spot after a Zak Whitbread foul on Nathan Thompson. He added the second (and his 25th of the season) three-minutes into the second half.

The home side rounded off the win on 86-minutes through Callum Burton seeing Shrewsbury finish four-points above the relegation zone in 20th place as we retained our League 1 status following promotion last season.

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

These were the other results.

Sunday 8th May 2016
Bradford 2-0 Chesterfield
Bury 3-2 Southend
Colchester 1-2 Rochdale
Doncaster 0-0 Burton
Fleetwood 2-0 Crewe
Gillingham 1-2 Millwall
Oldham 0-2 Coventry
Peterborough 5-1 Blackpool
Port Vale 0-5 Walsall
Sheff Utd 0-2 Scunthorpe
Swindon 3-0 Shrewsbury
Wigan 1-4 Barnsley

Burton (nil-nil) drew at Doncaster to confirm automatic promotion as runners up to Champions Wigan, with this also rubber-stamping the Donny relegation into League 2.

A Walsall (five-nil) win at Port Vale wasn’t enough for them to gain automatic promotion, the Saddlers needed Burton to lose so they’ll now take a play-off place with the final spot confirmed by Barnsley (four-one) who won at Wigan, who saw their title party tainted slightly.

The Tykes finished in sixth on goal-difference ahead of Scunthorpe (two-nil) who won at Sheffield United; with the final side battling for that final place Gillingham (two-one) losing at Millwall, which made certain they missed out.

One final relegation spot needed to be filled with this taken by Blackpool (five-one) after they were beaten at Peterborough – they would have gone down even with a win due to the three-points Fleetwood (two-nil) collected against already relegated Crewe.
