Scunthorpe are League One leaders by three points after their 3-2 win over Millwall (3rd). Leeds are second after a comfortable 3-0 win over Walsall, who slip into mid-table after four winless games. Leicester's goalless draw with Northampton sees them drop to fourth, with MK Dons' 3-1 win over Cheltenham - where goalkeeper Willy Gueret was sent off after the Robins' goal - and Peterboro's 4-0 demolition of Huddersfield putting the two promoted sides into the play-off zone.
Down the bottom Crewe's loss to Tranmere last night sees them remain bottom, with Leyton Orient's goalless draw with Yeovil helping neither side at the wrong end. Brighton slip further down the table after Kevin Kyle gave Hartlepool a 1-0 win, and Colchester's 5-0 whipping of sorry Carlisle puts the Cumbrians only three points off the dropzone. Swindon beat Oldham 2-0 to move clear of the bottom four. In the other match Bristol Rovers beat Southend 4-2 with Rickie Lambert scoring all four Pirates goals.
In League Two Wycombe remain top after a late Chris Zebroski goal was enough to win at Accrington in front of 1,217. Shrewsbury slip to fifth after a 1-1 draw at second placed Brentford, while Exeter move into the top three with a 1-0 win at Barnet. At the bottom Rotherham's win at Macclesfield saw them move up above the first non-deduction club after Grimsby's loss last night.
