Milton Keynes Dons and Sheffield United continue to lead the way in League One following comfortable wins on Saturday.

Leaders MK Dons won 3-1 away at Carlisle United while the high-flying Blades made light work of newly-promoted Bury at Bramall Lane.

Charlie MacDonald and Dean Bowditch scored either side of half-time for the Dons and, while Lee Miller pulled one back for the home side, Dean Lewington made sure the visitors claimed all three points with a decisive third.

Sheff Utd stayed level with the leaders following a 4-0 home win over Bury. Chris Porter, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Matthew Lowton and Erik Tonne were all on the scoresheet for the resurgent South Yorkshire outfit.

With third-placed Charlton Athletic entertaining Sheffield Wednesday on Monday night the leading duo are now three points ahead at the summit.

Brentford have climbed into fourth position courtesy of a 1-0 win at Walsall with Clayton Donaldson netting the only goal of the game with 27 minutes on the clock.

Tranmere Rovers remain in the play-off positions despite being held to a goalless home draw with Yeovil while Huddersfield came from a goal down to claim a 1-1 away draw at 10-man Oldham. Antony Kay cancelled out Shefki Kuqi's early opener for the Latics.

Hartlepool have surged into sixth following a 2-0 success over Exeter. Early and late goals from Gary Liddle and Nathan Luscombe ensured the home side claimed all three points.

Scunthorpe goalscorer Bobby Grant went from hero to zero as he opened the scoring and was sent off in their 1-1 draw with Colchester. The Us finally made their numerical advantage count in the second half thanks to Steven Gillespie's leveller.

Leyton Orient remain bottom of the table despite picking up a point away from home following a goalless draw at newly-promoted Chesterfield.

Notts County are 11th after a 3-1 win over lowly Bournemouth at Meadow Lane. Marc Pugh cancelled out Lee Hughes' lightning quick opener, but the Magpies were not to be denied with Krystian Pearce and Cristian Montano netting late efforts.

Stevenage are into the top half of the table after getting the better of Rochdale 4-2 in a six-goal thriller. Chris Beardsley helped himself to a brace for last year's League Two play-off winners.

Wycombe's scheduled League One weekend game with Preston was postponed.
