Sheffield United moved to the top of The Championship with another last-gasp win.
Sheffield Utd moved to the top of The Coca Cola Championship after a second consecutive last-gasp league win at Bramall Lane.
David Unsworth was The Blades' hero, after he cooly slotted home a 90th minute penalty to secure a 2-1 victory over Coventry.
The game exploded into life in three first half minutes, with James Scowcroft opening the scoring for the visitors after latching onto a slide rule pass from on-loan Manchester City an Willo Flood. However, moments later Steve Kabba made up for the absence of the injured Danny Webber, powering a shot past Steve Bywater.
Unsworth's late strike sealed a tough day for The Sky Blues, who had Matt Heath sent off for receiving two yellow cards.
Luton continued their impressive start to life in The Championship with a solid 2-0 win at Leicester.
Ahmet Brkovic sent Luton on their way to a third victory of the season on the verge of half time, spectacularly converting Kevin Nicholls' nod back from a corner with an overhead kick.
Nicholls then wrapped up the points in injury time, converting a penalty after a foul by Patrick McCarthy.
The Hatters were joined in the play-off places by Leeds who took all three points away from a tough encounter at Elland Road. Rob Hulse was responsible for the game's crucial moment, arriving at the perfect moment to lash the ball past Rob Green after good work down the flank from Fraser Richardson.
Ipswich and Southampton also fill the play-off positions ahead of the early evening game between Watford and Reading.
Harry Redknapp's men cruised to a 2-0 victory against Crewe, after Djamel Belmadi took advantage of some poor Crewe defending, running past several players before dispatching the ball into the top corner of the net. Captain Nigel Quashie then smashed the ball into the net following a good advantage by the referee.
Ipswich suffered a scare before recording a 2-1 win at bottom side Millwall. Darren Currie made Town's early pressure pay when he broke the offside trap to lift the ball over Millwall's Andy Marshall.
However, the tide seemed to turn in the second half after Ben May score a cracking equaliser against the run of play. Richard Naylor was then sent off for a professional foul, but Joe Royle's men rallied and Sam Parkin restored Town's lead, heading home after superb work by man of the match Currie.
There was controversy at Turf Moor as Derby stole a 2-2 draw midway through a mammoth eleven minutes of stoppage time against Burnley.
Inigo Idiakez gave The Rams the lead after half an hour, dispatching a beautiful 30-yard free Kick past Danny Coyne, who had no chance at all in the Burnley goal.
Just seconds after the restart, Ade Akinbiyi levelled matters after playing a sharp one-two before sliding the ball under the advancing Lee Camp's body. Gifton Noel-Williams then put the home side in front, rising highest at the far post to head home.
However, celebrations were soon tempered after Wayne Thomas was sent off just 60 seconds later for an off-the-ball incident. A fiery encounter tested the tempers of players and managers alike, and Derby manager Phil Brown was sent off for dissent.
The Rams then grabbed a point deep into injury time, with Grzegorz Rasiak equalising much to the home side's despair.
Last minute goals seemed to be the order of the day as Wolves also sneaked away with a last-minute 2-2 draw at Ninian Park. A Cameron Jerome brace got the home side off to the perfect start, but a Leon Clarke strike 15 minutes from time set up a tense finale.
And with the clock ticking down, Joleon Lescott grabbed Wolves a share of the spoils in the last minute, after reacting quickest in a goalmouth melee.
There were no such troubles for Crystal Palace, who were once again thankful for the instinctive goalscoring talents of Andrew Johnson as they won 2-0 against Stoke.
The England international proved to be the difference, first driving the ball past Steve Simonsen and then grabbing a second late on after nice work from Clinton Morrison.
Elsewhere, Hull took all three points at Plymouth after a glorious Stuart Elliot lob, whilst Preston and Brighton cancelled each other out at Deepdale
