Sheffield United have moved to the top of League One while Swindon Town and Doncaster Rovers missed the chance to win this afternoon.

United recorded an impressive 1-0 scoreline at Bournemouth thanks to a Jamie Murphy goal but despite late rallies, Swindon and Doncaster were held 1-1 at home to Preston North End and Yeovil Town respectively.

Tranmere Rovers got their title bid back on track with a comfortable 5-1 win at Colchester United but elsewhere Brentford missed the chance to stay in the playoff places, drawing 0-0 at home to Walsall.

Coventry City also fell away from the chasing pack somewhat after their match against Crewe Alexandra finished 2-1 to the away side, in what was the second meeting between the pair in four days.

Elsewhere Shrewsbury Town came from a goal down to beat Stevenage 2-1 and Hartlepool United won at Scunthorpe United by the same score.

Bottom club Portsmouth lost 1-0 at Oldham Athletic thanks to Jose Baxter's strike, while Crawley Town leapfrogged Leyton Orient after beating them by a single goal.

The remaining game in League One finished 1-1 between Milton Keynes Dons and Carlisle United.
