A greater gap was increased as the top when Scunthorpe went away from struggling Chesterfield with a three-nil lead that extended the lead at the top to five-points with the Spireites dropping to second-bottom.

There was plenty of entertainment between Yorkshire promotion battlers Bradford and Sheffield United, who couldn’t be separated in a six-goal thriller at Valley Parade. This three-three draw extended United’s unbeaten run, and took the Blades up to third, but meant the Bantams lost ground on leaders Scunthorpe.

Rochdale are out of the play-off places with improving Coventry winning again, the Sky Blues do remain in the bottom four but are now close to climbing out of relegation with AFC Wimbledon’s hopes of back-to-back promotions seeing them into the play-offs after a one-nil win at Peterborough.

A late goal saved Charlton from defeat at Gillingham, which might have been that for Russell Slade with the Addicks boss continuing to see the pressure on him at the club but not as much as it would have been if a one-one draw at Priestfield hadn’t been rescued.

Rivals to Charlton are of course Millwall with them recording a two-one win over Fleetwood at the Den but some consistency is now needed!

A three-nil win at MK Dons did plenty to boost Southend, who stay out of the bottom four and start to move away from it a little but Oldham’s two-nil defeat against Bristol Rovers at Boundary Park means the Latics remain very much in the bottom four.

Shrewsbury occupy the basement position still after a four-two defeat to Northampton at the Proact Stadium, it looks like it’ll be a long season for the Shrews!
