Scunthorpe went into the weekend as the leaders and they were able to extend that lead at the top after a two-one win at Glanford Park against MK Dons, who see their own struggles continue.

After a first loss of the season (when Oxford became the first side to beat Stuart McCall in the league since he returned to Bradford in the summer) saw the Bantams beaten one-nil at the Kassam Stadium.

Despite having recently gone on an extended run without a win, finding some form recently has seen Bolton up to third after a two-nil win over Oldham. That derby win meant the Latics remain in the bottom four.

Two sides that are less than impressed (to say the least) with the way the clubs are being run met at the Valley with Charlton collecting a much needed three-points to ease some pressure on Russell Slade. This three-nil win, with the match stopped momentarily when hundreds of plastic pigs were thrown onto the pitch, meant Coventry stayed rock bottom.

Millwall were another side in need of a win but the trip to Northampton wouldn’t have been a welcomed one, however after going away with a three-one win at Sixfields it was a fine afternoon for the Lions in the end.

A wonderful run by Rochdale, which has taken them from a relegation spot to the brink of an automatic promotion spot, was continued with Dale beating promotion rivals Bury. A two-nil win at Spotland took Rochdale up to fourth.

Having extended the unbeaten league run (with most of these won) Sheffield United’s own charge towards an automatic promotion place continued with a four-nil win over Port Vale at Bramall Lane moving United into the play-off places and just a few points from the top two.

Walsall edged out struggling Shrewsbury by the odd goal in five, when they won three-two at the Banks’s Stadium.
