Lee Frecklington scored twice as Rotherham claimed a 3-3 draw in an entertaining game at Sky Bet League 1 play-off rivals Preston.

Rotherham raced into a two-goal lead thanks to Frecklington's seventh-minute strike and an own goal from Tom Clarke four minutes later, but Craig Davies pulled one back eight minutes before the break.

Paul Gallagher pulled Preston level on the hour and Joe Garner completed the turnaround five minutes later, but Frecklington bagged his second a minute from time to ensure the spoils were shared.

The win took the Dons level on points with eighth-placed Swindon, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Crawley.

Nathan Byrne scored four minutes into the second half for the Robins, but Matt Tubbs' 80th-minute effort snatched a point for Crawley.

Chris Porter struck the only goal from the spot after 87 minutes as Sheffield United stole all three points with a late 1-0 win at Colchester, while Francois Zoko's fifth-minute goal saw rock-bottom Stevenage overcome Crewe by the same scoreline.
