A review of Saturday's action in Sky Bet League 1.

Darren Ferguson's Peterborough hung on to claim a dramatic 2-1 win over derby rivals MK Dons despite being reduced to nine men at London Road.

Posh's hopes of keeping pace with Sky Bet League 1 leaders Leyton Orient suffered a blow in the sixth minute when Nathaniel Knight-Percival was sent off for a foul on Patrick Bamford.

But Lee Tomlin's 12th minute penalty gave the home side the lead and Britt Assombalonga's second just past the half-hour mark made light of the hosts' numerical disadvantage.

Izale McLeod reduced the deficit for the Dons in the 74th minute and moments later Mark Little became the second home player to be shown a red card - but Posh hung on to stay second.

Wolves needed a late penalty to maintain their strong start to the season at Shrewsbury, with the game drifting towards a goalless draw until Jon Taylor's handball allowed Bakary Sako to fire an 84th minute winner from the spot.

Preston moved up to fourth after beating Sheffield United 1-0 at Bramall Lane.

The Blades are still without a win since the opening day of the season and stuck in the relegation zone after Stuart Beavon's 68th minute goal proved enough to earn the visitors the points.

Caretaker-boss Graham Kavanagh boosted his hopes of getting the Carlisle job full-time after leading the Cumbrians to their second straight win with a late 3-1 success at Stevenage.

Lee Miller gave the visitors an early lead and although Greg Tansey's penalty pulled Stevenage back level, two goals in the last 13 minutes from Matt Robson and David Amoo won it for Carlisle.

Notts County moved off the bottom with their first win of the season, goals from Joss Labadie and Marcus Haber giving them a 2-0 home win over Tranmere.

County's success saw Gillingham slide to the foot of the table after falling to Gary Jones' ninth minute winner for Bradford at Priestfield Stadium.

Nile Ranger lashed home an 87th minute winner as Swindon left Bristol City still searching for a first win of their own with a 3-2 victory at the County Ground.

City twice led through Aden Flint and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas but the hosts clawed back through two from Nick Ajose before Ranger struck his third goal of the season.

Chris Birchall's 83rd minute winner gave Port Vale victory by the same score over Coventry.

Callum Wilson's opener for the Sky Blues was cancelled out by Tom Pope, and although Franck Moussa put the visitors back in front, second half goals from Doug Loft and Birchall earned Vale the points.

Walsall and Rotherham shared the points in a 1-1 draw at the Bescot Stadium, Daniel Nardiello's opener for the visitors cancelled out by Sam Mamtom late in the first half.

Emile Sinclair's header earned Crawley a 1-1 draw at Colchester who had gone ahead early through Freddie Sears, while Charlie MacDonald's 54th minute equaliser was enough for Crewe to share a 1-1 draw at Oldham, who led through Oliver Turton.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
