Nine games went ahead in Sky Bet League One at the weekend as three were called off. Here is a round-up of what happened...

Leyton Orient 1-2 Peterborough United

Peterborough came from behind in the dying minutes to take all three points from the Matchroom Stadium.

Dave Mooney put Orient ahead with 20 minutes remaining, but Britt Assombalonga and Tommy Rowe came up trumps for Darren Ferguson’s side.

Tranmere Rovers 1-2 Preston North End

Joe Garner scored twice on his return to give Preston victory at Prenton Park, while Ash Taylor grabbed a consolation for Tranmere.

Walsall 0-3 MK Dons

Izale McLeod scored twice and Ben Reeves was on target from the spot as MK Dons cruised to victory over Walsall, who had skipper Andy Butler sent off at the Banks' Stadium.

Port Vale 2-3 Swindon Town

Swindon produced a magnificent second-half turnaround to take all three points at Vale Park.

Doug Loft and Tom Pope gave the hosts a comfortable first-half advantage, but goals after the break from Nile Ranger, Alex Pritchard and Nathan Byrne completed a wonderful comeback for the visitors.

Notts County 3-0 Coventry City

Goals from Hayden Mullins, Jimmy Spencer and an Alan Sheehan penalty gave Notts County a comfortable and much-needed win over a lacklustre Coventry at Meadow Lane.

Carlisle United 1-2 Gillingham

Joe Pigott and Cody McDonald’s goals were enough to give Gillingham a rare win in Cumbria, while a Leon Legge own goal in the final minute was a mere consolation for the hosts at Brunton Park.

Bradford City 3-3 Crewe Alexandra

The goals and points were shared after an entertaining game at the Coral Windows Stadium.

An Uche Ikpeazu double put Crewe two up, before quick-fire goals from James Hanson and Gary Jones brought the game level.

Mathias Pogba then put the visitors back in front, but Jones grabbed his second to salvage a point for the hosts.

Oldham Athletic 1-1 Bristol City

Aden Flint cancelled out Danny Philliskirk’s earlier effort for the hosts inside the opening 10 minutes to ensure Bristol City a share of the points at Boundary Park.

Sheffield United 2-0 Shrewsbury Town

Goals inside the opening 17 minutes from Ryan Flynn and Stefan Scougall were enough to give Sheffield United a valuable three points at Bramall Lane.
