Krystian Pearce and Cristian Montano scored in the last 12 minutes to hand Notts County a 3-1 win over Bournemouth.
County had led since a Jeff Hughes goal in the first minute, but Marc Pugh's 71st-minute equaliser threatened to earn the Cherries at least a point.
Substitute Steven Gillespie scored a 74th-minute equaliser as Colchester claimed a 1-1 draw at 10-man Scunthorpe.
Bobby Grant had an eventful first half for the Iron, scoring either side of two bookable offences.
