Leaders Peterborough were denied a sixth successive win after being held to a goalless draw at mid-table Oxford in Sky Bet League One.

But Posh still hold a three-point advantage at the top after former leaders Lincoln crashed to their second straight defeat at home to Fleetwood.

Goals from Gerard Garner and Callum Camps either side of half-time set the visitors on their way to a shock 2-1 win, with Callum Morton responding later for the hosts.

Hull took advantage to leapfrog the Imps into second place with a 2-0 win over Rochdale at the KCOM Stadium.

Mallik Wilks set the Tigers on their way to a second straight win with a 24th minute opener from outside the box, then a Gabriel Osho own goal effectively sealed the win before Rochdale’s Conor Shaughnessy was sent off late on.

Doncaster showed no ill effects from the sudden departure of their boss Darren Moore to Sheffield Wednesday, as they held on to clinch an important 2-1 win over fading Portsmouth.

Watched by Andy Butler, appointed as Moore’s replacement until the end of the season, goals from Reece James and Fejiri Okenabirhie eased the gloom over the Keepmoat Stadium before John Marquis struck an injury-time consolation against his former team.

And Sunderland also stepped up the pace in the quest to seal at least a play-off place as Charlie Wyke’s 70th-minute strike – his 24th of the season – proved enough to see off Swindon 1-0 at the Stadium of Light.
