Scunthorpe United extended their lead at the top of the table with an emphatic 3-0 home win over Millwall at Glanford Park. Goodwin scored the first 5 minutes after the break with Crosby converting a penalty 3 minutes later. The points were wrapped up by Beckford in the 79th minute. Scunthorpe United 1st, Millwall 19th.

Oldham Athletic travelled to Northampton Town for a Sunday fixture, coming away with a 3-2 away win - their 6th of the season. Wellens got Latics off to a flyer in the 2nd minute, but saw Kirk level in the 24th minute. The lead was restored by Warne in the 44th minute. Porter extended the lead in the 58th minute with Robertson pulling one back in the 88th. It wasn't enough to salvage a point for the home side. Northampton Town 16th, Oldham Athletic 2nd.

Bradford City were condemned to their 5th home defeat of the season as Yeovil Town impressed at Valley Parade. A brace from Davies in the 5th and 67th minutes was enough to claim all 3-points. Bradford City 14th, Yeovil Town 5th.

Doncaster Rovers edged Rotherham United at the Keepmoat Stadium in a 3-2 home win, their 6th of the season. However, Partridge put the visitors ahead in the 10th minute, but saw Heffernan level 2 minutes later. Lee fired the home side ahead in the 47th minute, which was added to by a second goal from Heffernan in the 59th minute. Woods pulled back a second for the Millers, but it wasn't enough. Doncaster Rovers 8th, Rotherham United 23rd.

Gillingham dented the hopes of Tranmere Rovers in their play-off bid as the Kent side ran out 2-0 winners at Priestfield. An own goal from McCready in the 22nd minute got the Gills off, which was added to by a goal of their own in 29th minute from Crofts. Gillingham 12th, Tranmere Rovers 9th.

Crewe Alexandra were taken to the cleaners at home against Leyton Orient at Gresty Road in a 0-4 drubbing! The east London side didn't net their first goal until the stroke of half time when Chambers netted in the 45th minute. After the break goals from Corden (51st min), Ibehre (67th min) and Tudor (83rd min) more than made sure that the points were heading back down the M6! Crewe Alexandra 17th, Leyton Orient 20th.
