Burton Albion remain top of the League One table after a 3-1 home win over Bradford City.

Mason Bennett, Tom Naylor and Mark Duffy all on target for the Brewers who stretch their lead at the top of the table to four points.

That was after second-placed Walsall’s 3-0 defeat at home to in-form Millwall - now with four wins from their last five in the league.

Their form is almost as good as Wigan Athletic, 2-0 winners at Sheffield United, nine games without defeat and a point off automatic spots.

Play-off hopefuls Gillingham were held to a goalless draw at Swindon Town and Southend United go level with sixth-placed Millwall with a 3-0 win over Colchester.

Peterborough will think they can contend for a top six spot after a 1-0 win at Chesterfield with nine men at a blustery Proact Stadium.

The Spireites are two points above the bottom four, which contains Crewe Alexandra who recorded a vital three points at home to Rochdale in a 2-0 win.

Meanwhile Lee Johnson has left his position at the helm of Barnsley to take on Championship strugglers Bristol City.
