With a win in the bag for Swansea City last night against Luton, we at Vital Swansea round-up today's League One action.
The main game was between Carlisle and Doncaster. Doncaster needed to extend their winning streak to 5 games to narrow the gap with the Swans while Carlisle were looking to get back into the automatic promotion places.
It was Carlisle who took all the points as Graham got the all-important strike 5 minutes before half time. Doncaster move down to 3rd after Forest beat Leyton Orient. Agogo got the vital goal in that game to send Colin Calderwood's side back into second place.
At the Withdean Stadium, Bournemouth hosted Cheltenham. Kevin Bond's side got off to a great start, taking a 2-goal lead in the first half courtesy of goals from Gradel and Bartley. However, they threw their 2-goal advantage away as Cheltenham fought back in the second period to earn a point. Bird struck on the stroke of half time and Brooker netted the equaliser in the 89th minute.
Walsall continued their excellent form with a comfortable 3-0 win away at Swindon. Holmes grabbed a brace and Nicholls got the 3rd to keep their momentum going, they sit in 5th place - 4 points adrift of an automatic promotion spot.
Southend are also closing in on a play-off spot following their 3-0 win away at Yeovil. They are just 2 points adrift of Tranmere who occupy the last play-off spot. Barnard, Clarke and Gower got the goals at Huish Park for Tilson's side.
Leeds United extended their winless run to 7 games after rescuing a point at home to Crewe. Kandol cancelled out Maynard's opener with just 4 minutes remaining.
Former Swansea City manager Kenny Jackett will be a happy man this weekend after watching his side win 3-0 at home to Port Vale. The Lions are up to 18th but are still only 1 point ahead of the relegation zone.
Swansea's next opponents, Huddersfield lost 1-0 away to Gillingham. Miller grabbed the winner from the penalty spot with just 2 minutes to go.
Murray also gave Brighton a 1-0 home win against Oldham.
Tranmere shared the spoils away at Bristol Rovers. Jennings was shown red just before the break for a challenge on Chris Lines but that didn't affect them as Tranmere took the lead 74 minutes as Kay headed home McLaren's free kick. Disley grabbed a late equaliser for Bristol Rovers 9 minutes from the end.
