          Hull City and Cheltenham Town both recovered from losses last time out to notch important wins in a weekend of upsets throughout League One and Two.

          Hull maintained their record of scoring in every game this season whilst shutting out Burton in a well-rounded 2-0 win that moves them up to second, a point behind Peterborough who fell to a surprise defeat against promoted Crewe.

          Fleetwood continued to recover from a below-par start with a dominant 4-1 win over Bristol Rovers that resulted in the dismissal of Ben Garner, while there was another upset in Sunderland, with the Black Cats giving up a one-goal lead to MK Dons thanks in part to another effort from Cameron Jerome.

          Elsewhere in League One, Accrington Stanley made it four wins in five by narrowly beating Northampton 1-0 through Jonathan Russell, while Matt Smith secured Swindon a point against Shrewsbury with a 93rd-minute equaliser in a 3-3 thriller.

          And there were similar scenes in the fourth tier, with Tranmere 3-2 down heading into extra time, Kaiyne Woolery netted a 93rd-minute leveler before Kieron Morris decided to make it a game of the season contender with a winner three minutes later.

          The aforementioned Cheltenham’s 2-1 win over Carlisle grew in importance as playoff rivals Exeter (2-2 vs Bradford) Cambridge (1-1 vs Barrow) and Forest Green (1-2 vs Mansfield) all dropped points in games they were expected to win.

          Elsewhere, bottom of the league Scunthorpe (2-0 vs Oldham) and Southend (1-0 vs Walsall) both picked up wins they desperately needed, with the latter ending a 12-game winless run.
