Danny Cadamarteri salvaged a vital point for Huddersfield in their npower League One promotion clash with Bournemouth.

Bournemouth struck first at Dean Court through Michael Symes in the 75th minute, and appeared poised to go level on points at the top of the table with Brighton.

However, Cadamarteri made it two goals in three league games since his free transfer move from Dundee United three weeks ago with an equaliser at the death to keep Huddersfield three points behind second-placed Bournemouth with a game in hand.

Peterborough came from behind at London Road to defeat Tranmere 2-1 and move up to fourth place. But after Grant McCann had initially cancelled out John Welsh's 24th-minute opener early in the second half, it took an own goal from Enoch Showunmi to give Posh all three points.

In-form Daniel Powell made it five goals in his last 10 matches to lift MK Dons into the top six, with the 19-year-old scoring on the stroke of half-time to give the visitors a 1-0 win at Hartlepool.

Charlton were the day's big losers, dropping out of the play-off places on the back of a surprise 3-1 defeat to Exeter at The Valley. Exeter's goals came in a 20-minute second-half spell, starting in the 64th minute via Liam Sercombe before John O'Flynn and a penalty from Ryan Harley added to the misery of the home side, who grabbed a late consolation through Bradley Wright-Phillips.

Bristol Rovers moved off the foot of the table with a 1-0 home win over play-off chasing Oldham courtesy of on-loan Rene Howe's 73rd-minute winner. Rovers are now three points from safety and two points above new bottom club Dagenham & Redbridge, albeit having played three games more.

Directly above Rovers, Swindon and Walsall both missed the chance to move out of the bottom four as the former lost 1-0 at home to Carlisle and the latter suffered a 2-0 defeat at Colchester.

At the County Ground, midfielder James Berrett scored his fifth goal in his last nine league games to move Carlisle to within seven points of the play-off places.

Colchester are four points shy of a top-six spot after they defeated the Saddlers with goals from David Perkins and a David Mooney penalty.
