Brentford kept up the pressure on Sky Bet League One Leaders Wolves as they beat Crawley 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Jonathan Douglas headed the only goal of the game in the 58th minute as the Bees moved just three points behind Wolves and nine clear of third-placed Rotherham after they slipped up at Sheffield United.

The Blades claimed a 1-0 win over their south Yorkshire rivals after Ben Davies struck a 90th-minute penalty.

In the evening's other game, Peterborough boosted their own play-off hopes with a 2-0 win over Gillingham.

Britt Assombalonga opened the scoring in the 42nd minute before Tommy Rowe added a second which sees Posh go six points clear of MK Dons, who are in seventh place.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
