League One leaders Leicester twice came from behind to beat Huddersfield 4-2 at the Walkers Stadium and move nine points clear at the summit.

Phil Jevons opened the scoring after just five minutes for the Terriers, and although Michael Morrison equalised, the visitors led again through Keigan Parker's 51st-minute effort.

But Bruno Berner levelled once more before Matty Fryatt and Jack Hobbs put Leicester in front. A disappointing end to the game for Huddersfield was capped by the 88th-minute dismissal of Gary Roberts.

Oldham are up to third after seeing off Stockport 3-1 in the north-west derby while Jermaine Beckford came off the bench to score the winner for Leeds as they boosted their play-off push with a 3-1 victory over fourth-placed Peterborough.

Goals from Paul Hayes and Garry Thompson fired Scunthorpe to a 2-1 win over Leyton Orient and fifth place. Dean Morgan got the goal for the visitors.

Rock-bottom Crewe were on the wrong end of a 5-1 thrashing as Northampton recorded their first win in five games in style.

Adam Hinshelwood's last-minute equaliser saw Brighton battle back from 2-0 down to earn a point at Cheltenham.

Ian Moore scored a brace either side of strikes from Gareth Edds and Steven Jennings as Tranmere thrashed Carlisle 4-1. Danny Graham got on the scoresheet for the visitors.

Steve Guinan's penalty cancelled out Troy Deeney's opener as Walsall and Hereford drew 1-1, while Aaron Brown's sixth-minute strike was enough to give Yeovil three points from their trip to Southend.

Bristol Rovers and Colchester shared the points from a goalless draw.
