Peterborough United closed the gap on Leyton Orient at the top of League One to one point with a 2-0 home win over Preston North End.
Tyrone Barnett put the hosts ahead after nine minutes and Grant McCann's goal 20 minutes later gave Darren Ferguson's side their fourth successive win as they made up two points on leaders Orient, who drew 1-1 away at Oldham Athletic.
Charlie McDonald put the home side in front nine minutes before the break, but substitute Shaun Batt preserved Orient's unbeaten league record with an equaliser in the 66th minute.
Wolverhampton Wanderers also moved to within one point of Russell Slade's Orient side after a comfortable 3-0 success at Colchester United.
Leigh Griffiths gave Kenny Jackett's side the advantage from the penalty spot in the 20th minute, before doubling his tally three minutes after the break.
Kevin Doyle made the game safe seven minutes later as Wolves claimed their third successive league win.
Four points behind Wolves in fourth are Bradford City, who won 2-0 away at Walsall.
Kyel Reid opened the scoring just before half-time, with James Hanson adding a second two minutes after the break as Bradford extended their unbeaten league run to seven matches.
Rotherham United moved into the play-off spots after Mark Bradley's 14th-minute strike handed them a 1-0 win at Brentford, a result that allowed them to leapfrog MK Dons, who went down 3-2 at Gillingham.
The visitors got off to a nightmare start, Danny Kedwell opening the scoring from the spot in the 11th minute before Tom Flanagan was shown a straight red card for a foul inside the box two minutes later, and again Kedwell made no mistake.
Remarkably, Patrick Bamford then drew the 10 men back level with goals in the 26th and 30th minutes, but the points went to the home side as Danny Hollands bagged the winner just before the hour to give Gillingham their second win of the season.
A Dany N'Guessan penalty in the 29th minute saw Swindon Town climb to 11th with a 1-0 win over Tranmere Rovers, who fell to the foot of the table.
Above Tranmere on goal difference only are Stevenage, who went down 1-0 at home to Coventry City, Leon Clarke's 33rd-minute strike proving the difference.
In 21st place are Crewe Alexandra, who dropped into the relegation zone after being thumped 4-0 at Notts County.
Callum McGregor put the hosts in control with goals in the 33rd and 41st minutes, before strikes from Danny Haynes and Marcus Haber in the 66th and 83rd minutes lifted County out of the bottom four.
Bristol City were denied their first league win of the season as Lee Hughes' last-minute equaliser rescued a point for Port Vale in a 1-1 draw.
Scott Wagstaff had given Sean O'Driscoll's side the lead 10 minutes after the break, but Hughes' goal leaves City just outside the relegation zone on goal difference.
Elsewhere, there was also late drama as Shrewsbury Town drew 2-2 at home with Carlisle United.
Tom Bradshaw put the hosts ahead five minutes before the break, only to see David Amoo find an equaliser with three minutes remaining.
Sean O'Hanlon looked to have given Carlisle all three points with a strike in the 90th minute, but Paul Parry replied instantly for Shrewsbury to ensure the points were shared.
