The Second Division's bottom team Cambridge United fought back for a shock victory after the leaders Brentford had gone 1-0 up inside five minutes.

An unmarked Ben Burgess headed home as the visitors dominated much of the first half but it was a different story after the break, with late goals from Paul Wanless and Daniel Chillingworth giving the hosts all three points. Brighton and Stoke were both grateful for the Cambridge victory, joining Brentford – who stay top on goal difference – on 45 points.

In the Third Division nearly 14,000 fans turned out as the leaders, Plymouth Argyle, opened new stands built as part of the redevelopment of Home Park. However, the celebrations were muted as Torquay fought back for a 2-2 draw, allowing Luton to close the gap at the top.
