Sports Mole rounds up Tuesday night's action from League One and League Two, where Gillingham moved back to the top of the fourth tier.

A goalless draw helped Swindon Town climb to third spot in League One on Tuesday night, while Gillingham reclaimed top spot in League Two.

The Robins were held to a 0-0 draw by Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road, but the point proved enough to move them above Brentford on goal difference into third place, while Orient stay fifth.

Paddy Madden netted his third consecutive brace for Yeovil Town as the Glovers saw off 10-man MK Dons 2-1 at Huish Park.

Antony Kay had levelled for the visitors going into the break, but was then shown a red card for violent conduct in the second half.

The hosts move up to seventh in the table, while the Dons drop to tenth.

Elsewhere, Notts County bagged two late goals to see off struggling Portsmouth 2-0 at Fratton Park.

Jeff Hughes and Francois Zoko both scored inside the final 10 minutes of the game, before County skipper Neal Bishop was sent off for the away side.

Earlier in the evening, Preston North End's trip to Crawley Town was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the Broadfield Stadium.

In League Two, Gillingham moved back to the top of the table after a 2-0 win over fellow promotion hopefuls Northampton Town at the Priestfield Stadium.

Cody McDonald put the hosts ahead after just four minutes, before Myles Weston doubled Gills' lead with just six minutes to play, as the Cobblers slip to fourth.

Northampton's fall in the table comes courtesy of a late Jacques Maghoma equaliser, as Burton Albion moved up to third in League Two following their 1-1 draw at Oxford United.

James Constable had put the U's ahead early in the second half, but despite their failure to hold on to the advantage, Oxford stay 12th in the table.

Results in full

League One: Crawley P-P Preston, Leyton Orient 0-0 Swindon, Portsmouth 0-2 Notts County, Yeovil 2-1 MK Dons.

League Two: Oxford 1-1 Burton Albion, Gillingham 2-0 Northampton.
