Luton regained their composure in emphatic style to extend their lead at the top of Coca-Cola League One to six points with a 4-0 hammering of second-placed Bradford.
 

The Bantams slip to fourth after the crushing defeat, which saw Ahmet Brkovic score a brace of goals after 14 and 79 minutes, with Steve Howard and Paul Underwood both netting before half-time. The Hatters, who started the season in spectacular fashion before falling to pieces with three successive defeats, were more than worthy of the 4-0 scoreline.


Tranmere moved into second spot with a narrow 1-0 victory at home to in-form Brentford. Prenton Park played host to the fifth versus sixth battle and it was Brian Little's side, behind the Londoners before the game, who had the edge thanks to defender Ian Sharps' second-half goal.


Hull remain third despite a below-par performance at Wrexham. The financially-stricken Welsh team took a 2-0 lead through Chris Llewellyn and Darren Ferguson in the first half, but Leon Cort's 36th-minute goal preceded Delroy Facey's equaliser after 55.


Barry Conlon and Michael Chopra both scored as Barnsley took three welcome points from the south coast, beating fourth-placed Bournemouth 3-1. Conlon converted a penalty after 20 minutes and got another before half-time. The Cherries looked set to mount a comeback when Wade Elliott scored after 52 minutes but Chopra's goal 21 minutes from time wrapped it up for the Tykes.


Swindon and Torquay shared six goals and the points in an entertaining encounter in Wiltshire. The visitors scored first, Leon Constantine finding the breakthrough after 16 minutes. But three Swindon goals inside 10 minutes turned the game on its head. Sam Parkin started the comeback after 27 minutes and when Brian Howard scored following Sammy Igoe's goal, the situation looked grim for Torquay. But an Adebayo Akinfenwa brace after half-time was enough to salvage a point for the away side.


Blackpool's resurgence continued with a hard-fought point at home to Huddersfield. Andy Booth put the Terriers in front 15 minutes into the game but John Murphy's leveller six minutes into the second half handed the Seasiders a 1-1 draw, although the point fails to prevent them dropping a place to 21st.


Doncaster emerged triumphant against Peterborough in a mid-table battle at Belle Vue, winning 2-1. Michael McIndoe scored four minutes in for Doncaster but when John Doolan was sent off for a professional foul and Clive Platt took Peterborough level, it looked less than rosy for Rovers. But Paul Green struck three minutes from time to seal a vital victory for the home side.


Sheffield Wednesday and Chesterfield shared the spoils at Hillsborough, drawing 2-2. Adam Proudlock scored for Wednesday after nine minutes, Steve Blatherwick equalised four minutes later, only for Steve MacLean's penalty to restore the Owls' lead. But Sammy Clingan netted after 55 minutes to salvage a draw for the Spireites and keep them above Wednesday in the table.


Walsall were forced to settle for a point away to MK Dons, after Darren Wrack's opener was nullified by Malvin Kamara's 36th-minute equaliser.


Aaron Wilbraham's first-half double helped Oldham to a 2-1 away win at rock-bottom Stockport - his former club - with Mark Bridge-Wilkinson's goal not enough to mount a comeback.


An Eifion Williams goal was enough for Hartlepool to beat Port Vale 1-0 at home, while Bristol City and Colchester cancelled each other out at Ashton Gate, drawing 0-0.
