Mendy (33), Westcarr (59) and Clarke (71) scoring for the visitors.
Bury 2-4 Rochdale
Bury conceded four goals for a second game running, although this time they managed to score some of their own but it could not prevent a 4-2 home defeat against Rochdale.
Grimes (5), Holness (10) and Adams (18) had the visitors 3-0 up before Jones (21) pulled one back. Ball (47) was on target for Rochdale in the 2nd half with Bishop (63) scoring a consolation.
Dale also ended with 10-men with Adams (76) shown a red for two yellows.
Carlisle 1-2 Hartlepool
A home defeat was inflicted on Carlisle by Hartlepool.
Liddle (21) and Boyd (41) put the host in control, a penalty from Loy (74) in the 2nd half gave Carlisle hope but it was the visitors that went away with a 2-1 win.
Charlton 2-0 Exeter
Charlton won again while Exeter slipped to another defeat, although this is one that many might have expected especially with Exeter playing with 10-men for a large slice of the game after Nardiello’s (19) sending off.
Goals from Wright-Phillips (43) and Stephens (81) secured Charlton a 2-0 win at The Valley.
Colchester 1-1 Leyton Orient
Colchester could not make the most of home advantage, and despite going ahead had to settle for a 1-1 draw.
Wordsworth (43) gave The U’s the lead on the stroke of half time and they looked good for a narrow win… That was until Smith (90+1) secured Orient a 1-1 draw with an injury-time leveller.
Huddersfield 2-0 Tranmere
Huddersfield made the most of home advantage to win an early season promotion battle.
Roberts (24) opened the scoring for Town, and the lead was held into the half time break. Arfield (82) scored shortly after his introduction to secure a 2-0 win at The Galpharm.
Notts County 2-1 Walsall
During the week Notts County went to Turin and secured a memorable draw with Juventus in a friendly, back in the league they went on better and beat Walsall at home.
L Hughes (38), who scored the goal in Turin, was on target again although Butler (61) cancelled that out for Walsall. Notts County would not be denied though and Montano (65) scored the winner to give County a 2-1 victory.
Oldham 1-1 Stevenage
Again Oldham has to be content with a point, although this time they came from behind to secure a draw against Stevenage.
Roberts’ (4) early goal was cancelled out by veteran striker Kuqi (19) to ensure a 1-1 draw at Boundary Park.
Scunthorpe 1-1 Sheffield United
Scunthorpe looked on course for a win over Sheffield United but had to be content with a draw in the end.
Having seen Barcham (25) sent off Scunthorpe still managed to go into the half time break ahead when Dagnall (45+1) scored in injury-time.
The Blades secured a 1-1 draw when Evans (72) scored for the visitors.
Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 MK Dons
MK Dons’ unbeaten start to the league one season came to an end at Sheffield Wednesday.
A goalless first half burst into life with two goals from Madine (54 & 63) to put The Owls in control.
Balanta (77) gave The Dons hope but Palmer (89) secured a 3-1 win in the last minute with Dons’ Ibehre (90+5) sent off for a second bookable offence deep into injury-time.
Wycombe 0-1 Brentford
The impressive start that Brentford have made to the season continued with a win at Wycombe.
O’Connor’s pen (36) was enough to secure The Bees a 1-0 win.
Preston 4-3 Yeovil
It was goals galore on Friday night with Preston just edging out Yeovil in the end.
Proctor (5) gave Preston and early lead but the sides went into the break level when Edgar (31) scored for Yeovil.
Goals from Nicholson (49) and Mellor (59) put the hosts in control but MacLean (64) gave the visitors hope – this was ended when Mellor (70) scored his second, MacLean’s (81) second of the game, from the penalty spot, was nothing more than a consolation with Preston winning 4-3.
