Review

Goals from Ollie Hawkins and Ronan Curtis earned leaders Portsmouth a 2-0 win at home to Walsall.

Hawkins' back-post header put Pompey in front against the run of play after 25 minutes but Curtis put them 2-0 ahead early in the second half when he tucked home the rebound after his first shot was saved.

Sunderland remain four points behind in second as they allowed Barnsley back into their game at the Stadium of Light before running out 4-2 winners.

Quick-fire goals from Aiden McGeady - a penalty - and Josh Maja put the home side firmly in control.

Lynden Gooch added a third with a deflected effort but Kieffer Moore pulled one back before half-time, drilling in at the second attempt.

It was game on when Moore headed in at the near post in the 61st minute, only for Luke O'Nien to secure the points with Sunderland's fourth seven minutes from time.

In-form Luton moved up to third as they made it 10 home games unbeaten with a 4-0 win against Bradford.

James Justin gave Luton the lead and Elliot Lee made it two five minutes later, finishing off a swift counter-attack.

The same player added a third for the rampant Hatters after 38 minutes and Harry Cornick completed the rout with a fine solo goal late on to make it seven wins from the last nine league matches.

Marcus Maddison's superb left-foot strike was enough for Peterborough to beat AFC Wimbledon and move Steve Evans' side fourth, while Charlton came from behind to beat Burton 2-1.

Lucas Akins' penalty put Burton in front, but goals from Karlan Grant and skipper Jason Pearce won it for the Addicks.

Doncaster moved above opponents Blackpool and into seventh with a 2-0 win at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Liverpool loanee Herbie Kane's thumping drive from distance went in off the underside of the crossbar and John Marquis' curling effort sealed victory.

Wycombe came from behind to claim a 2-1 success at Accrington.

Sean McConville turned in the opening goal, but after Wycombe equalised through Scott Kashket they snatched the points in the first minute of time added on when Alex Samuel lashed home.

Marcus Browne scored twice as Oxford beat a stubborn Rochdale side 4-2.

Jamie Mackie scored his second goal in three games from close range to give Oxford an early lead and James Henry slammed in a second shortly afterwards.

Ian Henderson's near-post finish on the half-hour brought Rochdale back into it but Browne made it 3-1 when he converted James Hanson's driven cross.

Callum Camps pulled a goal back with a superb 30-yard effort but Browne made the game safe with 12 minutes remaining.

Bristol Rovers lost again as Gillingham left the Memorial Stadium with a 2-1 win.

Elliott List opened the scoring for the Gills and Callum Reilly doubled their lead before he was sent off with 20 minutes left.

Rovers pulled a goal back late on when Liam Sercombe arrowed a free-kick into the top corner.

Goals from Timothee Dieng and Sam Mantom earned Southend a 2-0 win against 10-man Scunthorpe, a fine solo goal from Greg Docherty set Shrewsbury on their way to a 2-0 victory over Plymouth and two goals in as many minutes from Wes Burns and Ched Evans helped Fleetwood to a 3-0 win over Coventry.
