Huddersfield overturned an early two-goal deficit to beat Yeovil 4-2 and move top of npower League One.

Dean Bowditch and Paul Huntington struck in the first 15 minutes for the visitors, but Scott Arfield pulled a goal back four minutes after the break, defender Jamie McCombe's brace turned the game around and Gary Roberts netted a penalty to round off the scoring.

Peterborough, top at the start of play, had to settle for a point after a series of twists and turns against Exeter. Troy Archibald-Henville's own goal gave Posh a 29th-minute lead but Daniel Nardiello and Jamie Cureton put the hosts in front - only for substitute Lee Tomlin's 82nd-minute goal to secure a 2-2 draw.

Only two teams in the top half of this morning's table won on Saturday, with Oldham coming from behind to sink Bournemouth 2-1. Two goals in four minutes from Kieran Lee and Ournare Tounkare turned the game round after Rhoys Wiggins' opener.

Carlisle were held 0-0 by Brighton, while MK Dons and Rochdale also shared the spoils, the Dons' Mathias Doumbe quickly levelling Jason Kennedy's 20th-minute opener.

Sheffield Wednesday were sunk 3-2 by 10-man Plymouth at Home Park. The hosts led three times through Carl Fletcher, Bradley Wright-Phillips and, decisively, Craig Noone, but conceded equalisers to James O'Connor and Tommy Miller and had Bondz N'Gala sent off at 1-1.

Notts County moved into the top half as Lee Hughes' brace helped them to a 3-2 win over Leyton Orient. Craig Westcarr was also on target, while Ryan Jarvis and Matthew Spring scored for the Os.

Midfielder Jeff Hughes hit a hat-trick, the third a penalty, to give Bristol Rovers a 3-0 win at Dagenham and Redbridge.

Vincent Pericard's winner earned Swindon the spoils at Walsall after Saddlers sub Reuben Reid had cancelled out Alan Sheehan's strike.

Enoch Showunmi earned Tranmere a 1-1 draw after Scott Wagstaff had given Charlton an early lead, while there were no goals in Brentford's clash with Hartlepool or the game between Southampton and Colchester.
