Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway was unable to celebrate a victory against his former club Blackpool as Nouha Dicko equalised for the Seasiders in the 89th minute to seal a 2-2 draw at Selhurt Park. Aston Villa loanee Nathan Delfouneso had opened the scoring for the visitors before Owen Garvan equalised for the Eagles in the 52nd minute and Glenn Murray had handed them the lead.

Ishmael Miller sent Middlesbrough up to third place with a 76th minute strike to break Peterborough hearts in a five-goal thriller at London Road. Peterborough fought back to 2-2 from two goals down but Miller's goal was enough to condemn them to defeat.

Bristol City earned a hard-fought victory at Hillsborough as they beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2. Sam Baldock scored from the spot in each half and Albert Adomah finished off the game in the 88th minute as the visitors nicked it late on.

Hull are now up to the fourth spot after David Meyler and Robbie Brady put the Tigers two goals up against Watford before Troy Deeney scored a consolation late on. The defeat leaves the hosts still in the play-off spots in sixth place.

Millwall, meanwhile, were unable to take advantage of Watford's slip up as they lost 3-0 to Ipswich at Portman Road. The hosts were helped to victory by QPR loanee DJ Campbell who scored in each half. Daryl Murphy was the other name on the score sheet in a comfortable win for Ipswich.

In League One Sheffield United were able to glose the gap on leaders Tranmere Rovers to just one point after their 3-1 victory over Carlisle. Nick Blackman, Neil Collins and Ryan Flynn were amongst the goalscorers at Brunton Park.

Tranmere, meanwhile, were held to a 2-2 draw as they faced Portsmouth. Michael O'Halloran put the home side 2-1 up the 74th minute, but it took Pompey just a minute to equalise with Jake Jervis netting the crucial goal.

Fellow high-flyers Doncaster Rovers were also only able to manage a draw, missing out on the chance to go top with a 1-1 draw at Swindon Town. Both goals came early with Matt Ritchie opening the scoring for the hosts before a Danny Hollands own goal levelled things up.

Coventry City were able to continue their fantastic form up front with a 5-1 win over Walsall at the Ricoh Arena. Carl Baker and David McGoldrich both scored twice for the Sky Blues who romped to victory.

MK Dons maintained their momentum following their win in the FA Cup against AFC Wimbledon. Clayton Donaldson scored a late winner for Karl Robinson's side as they beat Brentford 3-2 at Griffin Park

Gillingham remain top of the league after beating Rotherham 2-1. Former Rotherham striker Deon Burton shrugged off the boos from the Millers support to help the league leaders to their first win in four games with both goals.

Chesterfield won comfortably as they beat Port Vale 2-0. Jay O'Shea scored against his former club as his side extended their winning run to four league games in a row.

There was a spectacular game at Northampton as Cheltenham won 3-2. Darryl Duffy's winner completed a memorable comeback for the Robins who came from two down to sneak victory.

Plymouth gained their first victory in seven league matches as they beat York at Home Park. Nick Chadwick powered home to seal victory for the home side late on.
