Bristol City moved up to third in Sky Bet League 1 on Sunday after coming from behind to beat Notts County 2-1 at Meadow Lane.

Shaun Derry's Magpies took a 13th-minute lead courtesy of a goal from Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Zeli Ismail, but Aaron Wilbraham levelled the score on the hour mark.

The Robins then secured all three points deep into injury time when second-half substitute Jay Emmanuel-Thomas converted from the penalty spot following a foul on Wade Elliot.

Milton Keynes Dons followed up their thrashing of Manchester United by maintaining a solid start to the Sky Bet League 1 campaign with a 2-0 home win over Crawley Town.

There was not a full house at stadiummk as there had been for Tuesday's 4-0 win against the Red Devils, but goals from Dele Alli and Benik Afobe ensured the majority of the 7,148 who turned up went home happy, even after Kyle McFadzean's late dismissal.

Peterborough United powered to the top of the table thanks to a 3-1 victory at Colchester United and Fleetwood Town's failure to beat Leyton Orient.

Kgosi Ntlhe went from hero to villain when sent off for Peterborough after 80 minutes having earlier scored in between strikes from Conor Washington and Jermaine Anderson, but Colchester could not add to their sole goal by Freddie Sears.

Fleetwood went behind when Darius Henderson put Orient ahead at Highbury Stadium, but Stephen Dobbie earned a point for the home team to extend their unbeaten start to the season.

In-form promotion hopefuls Preston North End and Sheffield United also shared the spoils via the same scoreline at Deepdale, with Andrew Little putting North End in front after 11 minutes, only for Jose Baxter to level for the Blades before the break.

Down at the basement, Crewe Alexandra remain stranded on no points following a 2-0 defeat at Gillingham, with Bradley Dack and Cody McDonald on target for the home team.

Oldham Athletic obliged by the same scoreline at Doncaster Rovers as Jonson Clarke-Harris struck after just four minutes and Jonathan Forte added a penalty, while Bradford City were also 2-0 victors, at Rochdale, thanks to goals from Jason Kennedy and James Hanson.

Chesterfield held on to prevail 2-1 at Port Vale, despite having Ian Evatt dismissed, with Eoin Doyle and Gary Roberts netting for the visitors, while Hakeeb Adelakun and Gary McSheffrey were on target as Scunthorpe United beat Walsall by the same scoreline.

Swindon Town and Coventry City shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw and it was the same result at Yeovil Town after Martin Cranie's own goal denied Barnsley an away win.
