Brentford 2-1 Gillingham

With Leyton Orient not in action, Jonathan Douglas and a penalty from Marcello Trotta sent Brentford back to the top of Sky Bet League One.

Cody McDonald was also on target from the spot for Peter Taylor’s side who stay 14th with 32 points, while Mark Warburton’s Bees are on 59 – two clear of Orient at the top.

Oldham Athletic 5-4 Peterborough United

Genseric Kusunga scored the winner four minutes into added-time, as Oldham edged out 10-man Peterborough in a thriller at Boundary Park.

Goals from Britt Assombalonga, Tommy Rowe and Lee Tomlin put the visitors three up, before Gary Harkins and David Worrall reduced the deficit to just a single goal.

Nicky Ajose restored the two-goal lead for Darren Ferguson’s men, before James Wesolowski halved the gap once again.

Harkins levelled from the spot after Tomlin was sent off for a deliberate handball, then Kusunga netted a dramatic winner for the Latics.

They remain 16th with 30 points, while Posh drop to seventh on goal difference with 45.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 Bristol City

New signing Nouha Dicko scored twice on his debut as Wolves kept pressure on the top two at Molineux.

Bakary Sako was also on target for Kenny Jackett’s men, while Sam Baldock scored a penalty for City.

Wolves remain third with 55 points, while Steve Cotterill’s side stay 23rd on 24.

Notts County 1-5 Walsall

Febian Brandy scored a first-half hat-trick as Walsall were the emphatic winners of the day at Meadow Lane.

Andy Butler and Craig Westcarr completed the victory for Dean Smith’s side, while Callum McGregor scored a consolation for Shaun Derry’s men.

The Saddlers are now in the play-off positions on goal difference with 45 points, but the Magpies drop to 18th on 27.

Rotherham United 2-2 Crawley Town

Kieran Agard equalised six minutes into stoppage-time to rescue a point for Rotherham at the New York Stadium.

Agard had earlier cancelled out Matt Tubb’s effort, before Josh Simpson restored Crawley’s lead.

He then salvaged a point for Steve Evans’ men to send them above Walsall and into fifth on goal difference, while John Gregory’s side stay 15th with 31 points.

Tranmere Rovers 1-0 Crewe Alexandra

Everton loanee Matthew Pennington scored the only goal of the game at Prenton Park, to lift Ronnie Moore’s side above their opponents and into 17th place.

They have 28 points – just one more than Steve Davis’ men who slip to 20th.

Swindon Town 3-1 Shrewsbury Town

Late goals form Nile Ranger and Michael Smith lifted Swindon up to eighth at the County Ground.

Smith’s earlier effort had been cancelled out by Paul Parry for caretaker Michael Jackson’s men, who slide into 22nd place with 26 points – 14 less than Mark Cooper’s side.
