Huddersfield Town 2-3 Wycombe Wanderers

Wycombe Wanderers produced an incredible comeback from 2-0 down to beat Huddersfield Town 3-2 on Saturday afternoon, sealing the victory just three minutes from time. Trailing 2-1 at the break, the visitors put in a fantastic second-half display to turn the game on its head, in turn picking up three vital points which leaves them 10 from safety. The Chairboys will hope the result marks the start of a winning run, with three of the four sides directly above them suffering defeat at the weekend.

Watford 6-0 Bristol City

Watford were Saturday's big winners, putting an incredible six goals past Bristol City at Vicarage Road to get back to winning ways in the league. It was a stunning first-half display from the hosts that ultimately did the damage, as Watford went into the break with a 4-0 lead. Ismaila Sarr registered two goals and two assists to keep the Hornets fourth in the table, and condemn City to their fourth successive league defeat. 

Brentford 0-2 Barnsley

Sunday saw the promotion race take yet another twist, as Brentford suffered a 2-0 home defeat to Barnsley. The result not only means Norwich City ended the weekend top of the table following their 4-1 win over Stoke City, but also that just three points separate seventh-placed Cardiff City and 15th-placed Luton Town! Barnsley are right in the mix, and sit 12th, while Brentford remain second in the standings.

Northampton Town 0-2 Burton Albion

Burton Albion secured a crucial away win in their battle to avoid relegation, at the expense of fellow strugglers Northampton Town, giving Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink something to smile about on his return to his former club. The victory is the Brewers' third in four league games and leaves them just two points adrift at the bottom of the table, while Northampton are one of four sides locked on 24 points with things really heating up.  

Sunderland AFC 4-1 Doncaster Rovers

While the bigger picture shows Sunderland AFC returning to the Play-Off places and to within one place of Doncaster Rovers, this match was all about two men - Charlie Wyke and Aiden McGeady. Wyke scored all four of Sunderland's goals, completing his hat-trick just after the half-hour mark, with McGeady providing the assist for each of the striker's goals. Doncaster did pull one back, but also missed two penalties, on what was a disappointing day for Darren Moore's men. 

Oxford United 2-1 Wigan Athletic

Oxford United left it late to claim a 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic and extend their excellent recent run of form to just one defeat in 16 games. It was Elliott Moore who bundled home the winner, a goal which means the U's are now just a point outside of the League One Play-Off places. Wigan, meanwhile, sit 22nd in the standings, with goal difference keeping them in the bottom four.

Bolton Wanderers 1-0 Stevenage

With several games falling to the freezing temperatures, there were just two League Two fixtures on Saturday, one of which seeing Bolton Wanderers record a narrow victory to jump up to 13th in the table. It was secured in memorable fashion, with Declan John's first goal in English football, and means they're now unbeaten in three games. Stevenage remain 21st, and six points clear off the relegation zone.

Cambridge United 0-0 Southend United

Southend United built on their win at Newport County by holding leaders Cambridge United to a goalless draw, a result which saw them move out of the League Two relegation zone for the first time since October. Cambridge, meanwhile, are now four points clear at the top, but have played three games more than the two sides directly below them in the table. Things are getting very interesting at both ends!

Colchester United 2-2 Mansfield Town 

There was late drama in Sunday's solitary League Two fixture, as Colchester United struck late on to claim a valuable point against in-form Mansfield Town. It was Frank Nouble who netted the hosts' late equaliser, claiming his first goal since returning to the club with a fine effort. It leaves them 17th, one point behind Mansfield, who are 14th.
