Charlton remain top of League One after recording their fourth straight win of the season with a 2-0 home success over Walsall.

Miguel Llera put them on the road to success with a close range strike in the 21st minute and Scott Wagstaff made sure of the points in the 71st minute.

Unbeaten Leeds remain second following their 3-0 victory over Tranmere at Elland Road.

United, like Charlton, have a 100% record and they easily overcame John Barnes' Rovers thanks to goals from Bradley Johnson, Jermaine Beckford, and Luciano Becchio.

Colchester remain third despite losing 2-1 at MK Dons.

Jermaine Easter gave the home side the lead in the 22nd minute and Mark Carrington made it two in the 57th minute. Scott Vernon pulled one back for Colchester but it was not enough to inspire them to get back in the game.

Bristol Rovers moved into fourth spot thanks to a 1-0 win over previously-unbeaten Huddersfield.

The decisive goal arrived in the 83rd minute when Town's Andy Butler was punished for handball and Jeff Hughes converted the spot-kick to earn the home side victory.

Brentford's fine start to the season continued with a 1-1 draw against rock-bottom Southampton. The Bees are now fifth after coming from behind to draw.

Dan Harding looked to have won the game for Saints when he scored in the 73rd minute but Cleveland Taylor headed the equaliser eight minutes from time.
