Nottingham Forest remain top of League One after a comfortable 4-0 win over Chesterfield.
Colin Calderwood's side have lived up to their pre-season billing as promotion favourites and they proved too much for The Spireites at The City Ground.
Jack Lester (35) opened the scoring for Forest before Neil Harris (45) doubled their advantage.
A Grant Holt penalty four minutes after the restart made it three and Nicky Southall (69 - pictured) wrapped up the scoring for Forest.
Tranmere Rovers are up to second after a 3-0 home win over Leyton Orient at Prenton Park.
A goal from Gavin Ward (9) and two from Chris Greenacre (12, 80) gave Ronnie Moore's side all three points for the Wirral-based club.
Brentford left it late to defeat Bradford City 2-1 at Griffin Park.
Mark Bower (14) gave The Bantams the lead, but a Kevin O'Connor equaliser (74) and winning strike by Jo-Osei Kuffour (81) meant the points went to The Bees.
Despite a difficult week in which three of their players were jailed, Bristol City moved up to eighth with a 1-0 home win over Brighton & Hove Albion.
Scott Brown's lone strike (21) was enough to give The Robins their second straight victory after Tuesday's 3-1 success over Northampton Town.
Nicky Maynard stole the show as Crewe Alexandra made it three on the bounce with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town in the noon-hour kick-off.
The Alex were in form following wins over Grimsby Town and Brighton and they secured the three points on Saturday with a fully deserved win.
Maynard bagged his first just before half time when he latched onto a loose ball before firing a right-footed shot under Matthew Glennon.
The teenager settled the contest after the break by toe-poking home from close range for his fifth league goal of the new season.
Bournemouth struck deep into injury time to defeat Oldham Athletic 3-2 at Dean Court.
The Cherries started well with a brace from James Hayter (28, 43) before Oldham pulled back level with a Andy Liddell penalty (47) and a second goal from the same player on 79 minutes.
With the match likely destined to be a draw, Marcus Browning struck three minutes into injury time to claim the points for Sean O'Driscoll's side.
Finally, Millwall and Blackpool played out a goalless draw at The Den.
