Luton's goalless draw at Colchester and Hull's first league defeat of the year meant Brian Little's Tranmere were the big winners in Coca-Cola League One.

The point at Layer Road nudged Luton a point clear at the top, thanks to Doncaster taking all three points from their Yorkshire derby at Hull. Hull had Ian Ashbee sent off in the late stages, but Doncaster were already ahead thanks to Michael McIndoe's stunning left-footed strike. It arrived in the 59th minute, and Doncaster maintained their slender advantage to snag a win which improves their play-off prospects.

Tranmere are threatening to break up the top two, and they now lurk just two points behind Hull after goals from Canadian international Iain Hume and 18-year-old frontman Chris Dagnall undid Walsall. They looked to be cruising when Dagnall added to Hume's long-range blast in the 50th minute. But Jorge Leitao pulled one back for the visitors to Prenton Park in the 62nd minute to make for a nervy conclusion.

Fourth-placed Sheffield Wednesday overcame Port Vale at Hillsborough on Friday night, and the battle between fifth and sixth went Hartlepool's way at Victoria Park. Adam Boyd put home side Hartlepool ahead against Bristol City with a 16th-minute penalty, which was wiped out 10 minutes later by Stephen Brooker. Anthony Sweeney drilled home Hartlepool's winner just after the midway point in the second half.

Man of the day in League One was undoubtedly Juan Ugarte of Wrexham, who climbed two places to 21st. The former Real Sociedad striker scored all his side's goals in their 4-2 victory at Chesterfield, which were sandwiched by Ian Evatt's opener and Shane Nicholson's late penalty consolation.

Wrexham leapfrogged Peterborough, whose player-coach Andy Legg scored and was sent off in the 2-1 home defeat by Oldham. Both the visitors' goals came from former Fulham man Kevin Betsy. Wrexham also went above MK Dons, beaten by Paul Edwards' early goal at Blackpool. With Bristol City losing at Hartlepool, Brentford took advantage and jumped over both the West Country outfit and Bournemouth to move into sixth place. Deon Burton and Stephen Hunt were on target for the Bees in their 2-1 win over Swindon, with Grant Smith replying.

Despite two goals from James Hayter, Bournemouth were beaten 3-2 at Huddersfield, with Pawel Abbott and Luke Beckett's double accounting for the Cherries.

Bottom side Stockport salvaged a point from the visit of Barnsley when Warren Feeney fired home a late penalty to ensure a 2-2 draw. Keith Briggs had put Stockport ahead, but Michael Boulding and Tony Vaughan turned the game on its head, before Feeney's late leveller.

Bradford let a two-goal lead slip at home against Torquay, with Andrew Cooke and Dean Windass the marksmen for the Bantams and Tony Bedeau and Adebayo Akinfenwa replying to take a point.
