They may be undefeated in the League so far this season, but Luton's lead was cut to a mere (!) 7 points as they were held 1-1 at Prenton Park by Tranmere Rovers. The hosts took the lead just after the half hour as Taylor fired Tranmere in to a 32th minute lead. But Luton Town are not top for a reason, and rescued a point with 14 minutes to go as they levelled through Coyne. Tranmere 3rd, Luton 1st.

Brentford maintained their 100% home record with a 6th straight win at Griffin Park, this time beating Oldham Athletic 2-0. Goals either side of half time through Ranking (45) and Tabb (47) saw Brentford leap up to 2nd in League One. The result leave Oldham winless on their travels so far this season. Brentford 2nd, Oldham 19th.

Colchester United maintained their good start to the season with a 2-1 home win over Port Vale at Layer Road. Their goals came in the first half through Danns (10 & 19), while Vale could only manage a consolation through Matthews in the 84th minute. Col U 4th, Vale 17th.

Hull City came unstuck up on the North East coast at Hartlepool United, going down 2-0 to their hosts. Hartlepool's goals came through Porter (8) and Boyd (50). Hartlepool 9th, Hull 5th.

It looks like Chesterfield are going to confound the critics after their scrape with relegation last season as they maintained a top-6 spot after a 2-2 draw with Bristol City. Nicholson fired the Spirites in to a 33rd minute lead before Murray (47) levelled and Coles (54) put the visitors in to the lead. Chesterfield secured a share of the points with 2 minutes to spare through Bailey. Chesterfield 6th, City 15th.

Huddersfield Town eased passed Walsall, who have not adjusted to life in League One this term, going down 3-1 in Yorkshire. Abbott and Mendes scored 2 in 2 (29 & 30 mins) to have the Saddlers rocking before the break. Abbott put the nail in the coffin on 68 to make it 3, before Clarke gave Walsall a consolation own goal with 17 minutes left on the clock. Town 7th, Walsall 21st.

Swindon Town will be kicking themselves after their visit to Edgeley Park. Three up (Fallon 13 & 66, McMaster 45), you'd have thought that the points were safe. But it would seem that Stockport County do not roll over and die as they came back to secure a point! Their goals came in the last 18 minutes through Beckett (72 & 80) before Barlow completed the come back on 83! County 24th, Town 8th. 

Bradford City secured the points in a Yorkshire derby against Barnsley (1-0) through a Dean Windass penalty. City 10th, Barnsley 16th.

Sheffield Wednesday continue to be thwarted at Hillsborough as they were surprisingly held 1-1 by Franchise FC. This means that they have only secured a solitary win at home so far!! The goals came through McGovern (65) and a last gasp equaliser for the Franchisees (McLeod) in the 89th minute! Wednesday 11th, Franchisees 20th.

Doncaster Rovers and Wrexham struggled to a 0-0 at Belle Vuw in front of a healthy 7567. Rovers 14th, Wrexham 13th.
