Only 18 teams played this weekend in the Sky Bet League One due to the international break, however it was thrilling as always. 

With things heating up at both ends of the table, there's plenty more to come as the season comes down to the final few weeks.

  • Oxford United 2-1 Lincoln City

Oxford United came from behind to beat Lincoln City in the opening fixture of the weekend on Friday evening. 

Anthony Scully got the Imps off to the perfect start inside four minutes. 

Goals from Anthony Forde and Matt Taylor eventually won the game for the U's as they move within touching distance of the play-off places.

This defeat puts another dent in Lincoln's automatic promotion hopes as they are now winless in five games.

  • Bristol Rovers 0-1 Sunderland

Sunderland kept up the pressure on second placed Peterborough United as they won 1-0 away from home against Bristol Rovers

A first half goal from Aiden O'Brien picked up all three points for the Black Cats as the Gas failed to move out of the relegation zone, as Joey Barton's side are running out of time to avoid the drop.

Lee Johnson's side are now 12 games unbeaten and will enjoy the long trip back up north after picking up a gritty win down south.

  • AFC Wimbledon 1-0 Northampton Town

As two sides in the horrible relegation battle met at Plough Lane, there wasn't much to settle the sides, until Joe Piggott netted an 88th minute goal to see AFC Wimbledon take all three points. 

A result which adds another twist to the everlasting tail this season, as the Dons went level on points with Northampton Town with one goal separating them in the table. 

This win gives the hosts a glimmer of hope at survival, and adds a ton of weight onto Northampton and Swindon's shoulders. 

  • Peterborough United 7-0 Accrington Stanley

Peterborough United rioted to a 7-0 victory as their free-scoring season continues, keeping huge pressure on league leaders Hull City, as the Tigers dropped points at home. 

Jonson Clarke-Harris netted another hat-trick, meanwhile Sammy Szmodics scored two. Mohamed Eisa and Idris Kanu scored late on to ensure the points were won by the home side. 

Darren Ferguson can expect a thrilling end to the season as the fight for the title looks to be going down to the wire as Sunderland are sneaking in at the business end of the season to pile pressure on first and second place.

  • Blackpool 2-2 Plymouth Argyle

Plymouth Argyle struck late to steal a point from Bloomfield Road. Ryan Hardie put The Pilgrims 1-0 up and they were in total control at half time, however Sullay Kaikai equalised just after the break. 

Jerry Yates scored once again for the Seasiders to put the hosts infront for the first time in the game. However, they couldn't hold on as Joe Edwards scored in stoppage time to nick a point for the away side. 

Neil Critchley's side stretch their unbeaten run to 11 games as they have sneaked into the play-offs after a recent glorious run of form. 

However, the Tangerines will see it as two big points lost, as teams below them failed to win. 

  • Shrewsbury 1-2 Portsmouth 

Portsmouth have got back-to-back wins for the first time in what feels like forever, as they rise back into the top six, where the sacking of Kenny Jacket is looking more and more like the best possible decision. 

Despite having ten men, they managed to see out the game at New Meadow. 

Marucs Harness and John Marquis put Pompey 2-0 up, before Nathaneal Ogbeta scored a goal to pull one back for The Shrews, however it wasn't enough in the end, even with Marquis getting sent off with 22 minutes to go. 

  • Wigan Athletic 0-0 Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town missed a huge chance to jump into the top six as they were held to a 1-1 draw against Wigan Athletic, where really both sides could have done with a huge three points.

This leaves The Latics two points off survial, where they'll probably still take the point regardless, as relegation beckons.

  • Hull City 1-1 Gillingham

Hull City are two games without a win, and only just sit top of the league by one point.​​​​​​​

Tom Eaves opened the scoring inside nine minutes, but an Olly Lee goal stole the point for Gillingham, who are play-off hopefulls going into their last six games. 

The Gills scored with their only shot on target of the game. 

  • MK Dons 1-0 Doncaster

​​​​​​​It's now four wins on the spin for MK Dons as they narrowly beat Doncaster Rovers 1-0 at Stadium MK. ​​​​​​​

Daniel Harvie scored the winner on the 76th minute as Doncaster slip out of the top six, and are without a win in five games, as hopes of promotion could be starting to slip away. 

Meanwhile, MK Dons move within three points of the play-off's as things are starting to heat up even more.
