Notts County picked up a dramatic three points at home to Shrewsbury to go to the top of the table with a 3-2 win at Meadow Lane.

Elsewhere, Tranmere were held to a 0-0 draw with newly promoted Crewe to stay in second place, while Yeovil lost their first match of the season at home to Bournemouth and stay in third position.

Sheffield United picked up a point away to bottom-place Scunthorpe, and are in fourth place, with Crawley facing Portsmouth tomorrow afternoon with a chance of going top.

Brentford move up to sixth after a late goal at home to Colchester, meaning the U's are still without a win this season. Preston picked up a 2-1 win away to Bury, pushing them up to seventh place, while Walsall climb to ninth with a home win against the MK Dons.

Swindon lost ground after a 1-0 loss at home to Leyton Orient, meaning Paolo Di Canio's team are now 11th after a tumultuous week for the club. And in the day's other game, Hartlepool let a one-goal lead slip at home to Carlisle.

On Sunday, managerless Coventry fell to a 2-1 defeat against Stevenage as Marcus Haber grabbed a second-half winner. David McGoldrick had opened the scoring with a spectacular strike but Robin Shroot cancelled out the home team's advantage before Haber secured three points.

Later, Portsmouth collected all three points for the first time this season in a controversial match against Crawley. The home side had Josh Simpson sent off for a second yellow card - although it appeared Pompey striker Izale McLeod had dived - before Hope Akpan suffered the same fate in the second half.

That red card prompted a late flurry of goals, as Ashley Harris, Luke Rodgers and McLeod all struck to secure a 3-0 victory against the nine men.

Exeter moved up to second place with an impressive 4-2 win away at Oxford United, and Port Vale joined them in the top three with the result of the day, a 6-2 home win against Steve Evans' Rotherham side.

Fleetwood Town beat mid-table Morecambe 4-0 to climb into fourth place, as Accrington Stanley were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Bradford.

York City stole a late point at home to Chesterfield to finish the day in seventh place, and Northampton are in eighth after a 2-0 win at home to AFC Wimbledon.

Cheltenham are in ninth after a 1-1 draw away to Wycombe, with Torquay in 11th after a goalless draw with neighbours Plymouth.

Dagenham & Redbridge are languishing just above the drop zone following their 3-1 defeat away to Southend, while Burton Albion climbed to 15th following their 1-0 win over Rochdale at Spotland Stadium.

And in the final game of the day, Bristol Rovers picked up only their second point of the season after a 2-2 draw at home with Aldershot.
