Burton Albion are back on top of the league, while Oldham took a big step towards avoiding relegation.

Peterborough United, Burton Albion 1

Burton Albion moved to the top of League One after yet another win. Tom Naylor scored the deciding goal just three minutes into the contest and the league's best defence made that stand up as they leapfrogged Gillingam in the table.

Bradford City 0, Barnsley 1

Blackpool 0, Sheffield United 0

Neither the Tangerines nor the Blades could find a breakthrough on Tuesday. The result was tough for Sheffield United, who are fighting for a play-off place, but Blackpool will be happy to get one point further from the drop zone.

Bury 0, Crewe Alexandra 0

Bury dominated the affair at Gigg Lane, but they couldn't find a way through in 90 minutes. The point is vital to Crewe's survival hopes as they creep closer to safety, but they still remain in the drop zone and need several more results to go their way for the rest of the campaign.
