Josh Magennis put Hull into an early lead, only for the visitors to be pegged back by Lewis Montsma's effort.

But just when Hull feared a frustrating draw, up popped Wilks with the winner from the penalty spot to seal their place in the second tier.

Peterborough's 1-0 win at Charlton, however, meant that Hull remain four points clear of Posh, who have a game in hand.

Jonson Clarke-Harris' ninth-minute goal sealed a 1-0 win at Charlton, who saw Jayden Stockley miss a penalty, and need one more point from three games to secure promotion.

Charlie Wyke's brace took his tally to 30 goals in all competitions for third-placed Sunderland, but the Black Cats could only draw 3-3 with Accrington.

Colby Bishop found the net for Stanley, before a Luke O'Nien own goal dragged the visitors back level at 2-2.

Max Power thought he had snatched back the win for the Wearsiders, only for Sean McConville to net late on and thwart the hosts.

Matt Taylor struck twice with a Joe Edwards own goal also helping out as Oxford saw off Plymouth 3-1.

Niall Ennis was on target for the Pilgrims but it was a tough day on the road for the men from Devon.

Centre-back Matthew Pennington's goal did the trick for Shrewsbury, who dented Blackpool's play-off chase with a 1-0 win on their travels.

Northampton struck twice in four minutes through Ryan Edmondson and Fraser Horsfall to pinch a 2-2 draw at Gillingham.

Vadaine Oliver and Olly Lee had the hosts in control at 2-0 heading into the last 20 minutes, only for the Cobblers to turn the tables at the death.

Joe Piggott missed a penalty as AFC Wimbledon played out a goalless draw at Ipswich.

Barrie McKay found the net as Fleetwood bagged a 1-0 win at Doncaster, while two added-time goals left Crewe and Rochdale drawing 1-1.

First Charlie Kirk thought he had snatched the win for the hosts, only for Matt Done to level for Dale in the seventh minute of second-half stoppage time.

Will Keane answered Joe Powell's early effort for Burton to hand hosts Wigan a 1-1 draw.

Will Grigg struck four goals as MK Dons thrashed Swindon 5-0, with Scott Fraser adding a penalty for good measure.

Joey Barton's Bristol Rovers were officially relegated to League Two thanks to a 1-0 loss at play-off hopefuls Portsmouth.
