Leigh Griffiths celebrates his goal for Wolves against Sheffield United

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

Sky Bet League One leaders Leyton Orient saw their 100% record come to an end as Walsall secured a 1-1 draw at Brisbane Road, where both teams finished with 10 men.

Walsall defender Andy Butler (18) was shown a straight red card for a foul on Romain Vincelot and David Mooney (38) put the hosts ahead before half-time.

However, a close-range strike from Craig Westcarr (71) levelled things up, with Vincelot picking up a second yellow card in stoppage time.

Peterborough took advantage to close the gap to three points as they won 1-0 at Rotherham, who had been unbeaten, through a second-half penalty from Grant McCann (51).

Wolves are third after they beat bottom club Sheffield United 2-0 at Molineux with second-half goals from Leigh Griffiths (66) and Bakary Sako (90).

Preston were 2-1 winners over Swindon at Deepdale. Iain Hume (11) and an own goal from Jay McEveley (48) - chipping his own keeper - set the hosts on their way, with Dany N'Guessan (86) scoring a late consolation.

James Hanson scored a stoppage-time winner as Bradford came from behind to beat Shrewsbury 2-1.

Tom Bradshaw (2) got the visitors off to a flying start, but Kyel Reid levelled on the hour. Shrewsbury had defender Dave Winfield sent off for a second yellow card and the Bantams made their extra man count with Hanson's dramatic late winner.

MK Dons are also in the top six after they dispatched Stevenage 4-1, where Patrick Bamford scored twice.

At the other end of the table, Notts County remain in the bottom four after they lost 2-1 at Carlisle.

County had led through Callum McGregor (27), but could not hold on as a free-kick from Matt Robson (41) and David Amoo (54) gave the home side all three points.

Tranmere had Liam Ridehalgh sent off as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Port Vale. Tom Pope missed a first-half penalty for the visitors, but Chris Lines (56) was on target in the second half.

Gillingham ran out 3-0 winners at Crewe, with goals from Cody McDonald (39), Joe Martin (50) and Adam Barrett (70).

Bristol City and Colchester drew 1-1, while an early goal from defender Joe Walsh proved enough to give Crawley a 1-0 home win over Oldham.

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...
