James Collins' strike saw Swindon win at Colchester

Swindon moved to just two points behind the npower League One automatic promotion places after James Collins' second-half strike sealed a 1-0 win at struggling Colchester.

Stevenage eased to a 2-0 win over Notts County thanks to Sam Hoskins' strike after just 38 seconds and Marcus Haber's 89th-minute effort.

Akpo Sodje's second goal of the game six minutes from full-time ensured Scunthorpe beat Portsmouth 2-1. Sodje had put the home side ahead five minutes before the break but Liam Walker equalised on the stroke of half-time. Second-bottom Pompey thought they had secured a vital point before Sodje the winner late on.

Oldham against Yeovil and Sheffield United versus Crawley were postponed due to snow and a waterlogged pitch respectively.
