Last Updated: 25/08/18 6:09pm
Peterborough are two points clear at the top of the table after they extended their 100 per cent start to the season in Sky Bet League One with a 5-1 thrashing of Plymouth at Home Park.
Steve Evans' side went 2-0 up early on, with Matt Godden and Siriki Dembele scoring in the eighth and 11th minutes respectively.
Jason Cummings then netted twice soon after the break - the second effort a penalty - and after Ryan Edwards headed in at the other end in stoppage time, there was still time for Godden to add his second as Posh made it five victories from five games.
Sunderland moved up to second having come from behind to win 2-1 at AFC Wimbledon, with Lee Cattermole scoring a second-half brace. Cattermole netted in the 66th and 83rd minutes after Joe Pigott had put the home side ahead in the ninth.
Portsmouth, down a place to third, dropped points for the first time this term as they drew 0-0 at Doncaster, who had Marko Marosi sent off with seven minutes of normal time remaining.
Also on 13 points are Walsall, who won 2-1 at Rochdale. Josh Ginnelly and Zeli Ismail scored for the visitors before Callum Camps' reply. Ismail was red-carded in the 86th minute.
Joey Barton's sixth-placed Fleetwood battled out a goalless draw with Charlton at The Valley, a match that was held up in the first minute as home fans threw packets of crisps onto the pitch. Charlton supporters had planned the protest in response to Belgian owner Roland Duchatelet's latest cost-cutting measures.
Oxford registered their first points of the season as they beat Burton 3-1 at home. There was a first league win of 2018-19 for Wycombe, with the Chairboys triumphing 2-1 at Bradford. Shrewsbury remain without a victory following their 3-2 loss at Luton, in which they had led twice.
Elsewhere, managerless Blackpool were held 1-1 at home with Accrington, with Mark Hughes scoring a late equaliser for Stanley after Nathan Delfouneso had put the home side in front.
It was the same scoreline in Gillingham's home clash with Coventry, which saw the visitors lead through Jonson Clarke-Harris and Elliott List bring things level.
Saturday's other game was Southend's 1-0 win at Bristol Rovers, sealed by Tom Hopper's first-half goal.
