Doncaster Rovers had the chance to go top, but failed to do so as their home form deserted them again, with a 0-0 draw against Franchise FC. Doncaster Rovers 2nd, Franchise FC 12th.

Sheffield United put their recent wobble behind them with a 2-0 win over recently improved Bury at Gigg Lane. Goals from Forte (38th min) and Murphy (60th min) sealed the win. Bury 22nd, Sheffield United 5th.

Keeping the pressure up were Yeovil Town who recorded a 3-1 win over Preston North End at Huish Park, despite going a goal behind to a Beardsley strike in the 30th minute.
