Last updated : 22 January 2011 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

AFC Bournemouth gave new boss, Lee Bradbury, his first win in charge as the Cherries recorded their 10th home win of the season (the first club to do so in League One this season) as Feeney netted the only goal of the game in the 62nd minute to dent Brighton & Hove Albion. AFC Bournemouth 2nd, Brighton & Hove Albion 1st.

With Huddersfield Town (3rd) being held at home to Colchester United (10th) in a 0-0 draw, it presented an opportunity for others to take advantage. AFC Bournemouth managed that, but South Coast Club came a cropper against lowly Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park as the hosts boosted their chances of League One survival. Welsh opened the scoring for Rovers in the 13th minute, with Jennings sealing the win on the hour mark. Tranmere Rovers 19th, South Coast Club 4th.

Peterborough United gave returning boss, Darren Ferguson a great home coming with a 4-0 romp over Hartlepool United at London Road. Mackail-Smith opened the scoring in the 62nd minute, which marked the start of a frantic few minutes as Rowe netted in the 64th minute and Tomlin added a 3rd 4 minutes later as Pool collapsed. The home faithful had to wait a further 22 minutes before Wesolowski added a 4th in the 90th minute. Peterborough United 5th, Hartlepool United 14th.

Franchise FC left it very late to claim the points at Victoria Road against 10-man Dagenham & Redbridge. Carrington scored the winner in the 93rd minute. Dagenham & Redbridge 23rd, Franchise FC 6th.

Charlton Athletic got back to winning ways at The Valley with a 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle. Wagstaff and Eccleston netted the goals to clinch 3-points with strikes in the 55th and 90th minutes respectively. Charlton Athletic 7th, Plymouth Argyle 15th.

Oldham Athletic recorded their 6th home win of the season with a 2-1 victory over Brentford at Boundary Park. Tounkara gave the Latics the lead in the 40th minute, with Morais doubling the advantage in the 70th minute. Simpson pulled one back for the Bees in the 82nd minute, but wasn't enough to salvage a point. Oldham Athletic 8th, Brentford 16th.

Rochdale compounded Yeovil Town's relegation worries as the Jones scored the only goal of the game in the 17th minute, which ensured that the points were heading back up to greater Manchester. Yeovil Town 22nd, Rochdale 9th.

Carlisle United are to within touching distance of the play-off places (5 points adrift) as they claimed a 1-0 win over Notts County at Meadow Lane. Zoko scored the only goal of the game in the 55th minute. Notts County 18th, Carlisle United 11th.

Leyton Orient thumped play-off chasing Sheffield Wednesday with a resounding 4-0 win at Brisbane Road. After a goal-less first half, a Chorley penalty in the 51st minute got the O's off the mark, which was followed with strikes from Kane (57th min), Revell (79th min) and M'Poku (84th min). Leyton Orient 17th, Sheffield Wednesday 12th.

Are Walsall doomed to relegation, even at this stage of the season? The Saddlers are (effectively) 10-points adrift of safety following a 2-1 defeat against Exeter City at St James Park. Duffy gave the Grecians the lead in the 4th minute, with Nardiello extending the advantage in the 77th minute. A Gray consolation with 5 minutes to go was as about as it got for the travelling support. Exeter City 13th, Walsall 24th.

A west country relegation 6-pointer was played out at The Memorial Stadium as Bristol Rovers recorded a 3-1 win over out-of-sorts Swindon Town. Hoskins gave the Pirates the lead in the 7th minute, with Kuffour pouncing for the 2nd in the 48th minute. McGovern gave the Robins a 66th minute life line, but that was whipped away when Hughes made it 3-1 in the 74th minute. Bristol Rovers 21st, Swindon Town 20th.
