Port Vale and Nottingham Forest continued to set the pace at the top of Coca-Cola League One by extending their winning starts to the season on Saturday.
Leon Constantine struck a late winner as Vale overcame Chesterfield 3-2 at home.
It was Constantine's second of the game and George Pilkington also found the net but the Spireites fought hard and got within three minutes of a point after goals from Aaron Downes and Caleb Folan.
Forest enjoyed a 2-1 win over Brighton after coming from behind in the final 27 minutes.
Jake Robinson gave Brighton the lead at the City Ground but Grant Holt levelled with a 63rd-minute penalty and then won it 12 minutes from time. Brighton had Adam El-Abd sent off late on for a second bookable offence.
At the bottom of the table, Rotherham moved on to a points total of minus four with a 2-1 win over Scunthorpe at Millmoor.
Eugen Bopp and Pablo Mills claimed the Millers goals after Billy Sharp had struck early for the visitors.
Blackpool claimed their first points of the season with a 4-2 win at Bristol City.
Keigan Parker and Danny Graham settled the game with goals in the last 13 minutes.
Enoch Showunmi had struck twice for City but Blackpool finished stronger, their earlier goals coming from Scott Vernon and Michael Jackson.
Brentford maintained their unbeaten record with a 2-2 draw against Huddersfield, but there was late drama at Griffin Park.
Jo Kuffour thought he had snatched victory for the Bees with his second goal in the 89th minute only for Luke Beckett to equalise moments later. Huddersfield's first equaliser had come from Danny Schofield.
Goals from Tranmere's Kevin Ellison and John Mullin condemned Yeovil to their first defeat of the season. The Glovers went down 2-1 at Prenton Park despite a goal from Chris Cohen.
Eddie Johnson scored his first two Bradford goals to help sink his old club Crewe at Gresty Road, Marc Bridge-Wilkinson grabbing the other.
Kevin Gall hit a brace and had a penalty saved by Glyn Garner in Carlisle's 3-1 win over Leyton Orient. Karl Hawley also struck for the Cumbrians with the Londoners replying through Lee Steele.
Steve Fletcher and Lee Best helped Bournemouth to a 2-1 win over Cheltenham, who replied through Grant McCann, while Andy Kirk's goal for Northampton proved enough to beat Gillingham.
Poul Hubertz hit a 79th-minute winner as Millwall beat Oldham 1-0 while Swansea beat Doncaster 2-0 with two late goals from Lee Trundle.
