Striker Jordan Rhodes capped a memorable week by scoring twice and making the other as Huddersfield broke an 86-year club record with a 3-0 defeat of Notts County.

Rhodes, who made his Scotland Under-21 debut against Belgium on Thursday, headed in the opening goal in this npower League One game from Benik Afobe's cross.

The youngster's through-ball on 58 minutes set up Gary Roberts to make it 2-0, before Rhodes - who has now scored 20 goals this season - rounded off the scoring five minutes later.

Huddersfield, now four points clear of third-placed Peterborough, have gone 18 league games unbeaten, breaking the record for an unbeaten run in a single season which they set in 1925.

In League Two, play-off chasing Oxford defeated struggling Burton 3-0 - and the visitors had two players dismissed in the second half.

Darren Moore was red-carded 11 minutes after the break for bringing down James Constable when the striker charged towards goal - and Tom Parkes followed him 13 minutes from time when he picked up a second yellow card for a foul on Constable.

Steve MacLean scored twice for the home side, sandwiching Tom Craddock's penalty.

Two goals in the last four minutes from Cody McDonald lifted Gillingham up to sixth with a 2-1 win at Cheltenham, who had led through Steve Elliott's third-minute goal.

Today's other League Two game saw Hereford improve their survival prospects with a 1-0 win over Crewe, courtesy of Stuart Fleetwood's 23rd-minute goal.
