Leaders Luton produced a 5-0 victory at home to Bristol City to maintain their six-point lead over Hull, 3-1 winners at Tranmere - but undoubtedly

Edds (59) scored before Keith Briggs pulled one back for the visitors, who had John Hardiker sent off for a second bookable offence 10 minutes from
There was no joy for second-bottom Peterborough who were denied a point by two Barnsley goals in the last two minutes. Michael Chopra's 67th-minute

Torquay slipped a place to 21st after a 2-2 draw at home to Chesterfield, Adebayo Akinfenwa (20) and Martin Phillips (88) scoring for the hosts with
