Sunday 17th November

Bradford City and Coventry City played out a dramatic 3-3 draw in front of the Sky Sports cameras in Sky Bet League 1 on Sunday.

Coventry defender Andy Webster scored the first in the second minute following a free-kick from skipper Carl Baker. Bantams keeper Jon McLaughlin tried to catch the ball, but he appeared to be impeded by team-mate Rory McArdle and the ball ran loose to Webster to fire the ball into the net.

Before Bradford recovered, it was 2-0 to the Sky Blues. Striker Callum Wilson took the ball off McArdle after chasing down a long pass from Blair Adams and, although McLaughlin knocked the ball away from him, it ran loose to fellow striker Leon Clarke to fire into the unguarded net for his 12th goal of the season.

Bradford's James Hanson saw his far-post header stopped on the line by keeper Joe Murphy before Nahki Wells pulled a goal back after 18 minutes when Hanson headed a long clearance from Kyel Reid over Murphy's head and into the path of Wells.

Hanson and Wells combined again for Bradford's equaliser - the strong Hanson heading James Meredith's free-kick into the path of the Bermudian international to volley into the net.

However, Wilson restored Coventry's lead three minutes before half-time with a close range angled shot after getting the better of defender Matthew Bates.

Both sides had chances in the second half before Wells scored a last-gasp equaliser from the penalty spot, following a handball in the Coventry backline.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are the new Sky Bet League 1 leaders after capitalising on a first home league defeat for Leyton Orient by beating Notts County 1-0 at Meadow Lane.

Ethan Ebanks-Landell scored the only goal of the game - which was Shaun Derry's first league game in charge of the Magpies - in the 76th minute to lift Wolves above early pacesetters Orient and a point clear at the top.

Preston North End, meanwhile, became the first team to beat Russell Slade's O's at Brisbane Road in the league this season, Joe Garner's 33rd-minute goal enough to decide the match.

There was a dominant victory for promotion hopefuls Brentford, who dispatched struggling Crewe Alexandra 5-0 at Griffin Park to go fourth.

Marcello Trotta opened the scoring two minutes before the break with Adam Forshaw (46) and George Saville (58) extending the Bees' lead before Clayton Donaldson hit a brace with goals in the 63rd and 73rd minutes.

Swindon Town and Rotherham United are also upwardly mobile and both clubs picked up confidence-boosting wins on the road to stay in the Play-Off picture.

Nicky Ajose (28) and Dany N'Guessan (47) gave the Robins a healthy lead at Colchester United but there was a late scare for the sixth-placed side as Magnus Okuonghae made it 2-1 with 12 minutes remaining.

It was an easier run-out for Rotherham, whose long trip home from Stevenage will be a happy one after goals from Ben Pringle (14), Claude Davis (61) and Michael O'Connor (66) settled a comfortable 3-0 win.

Port Vale are only three points away from the top six after beating Shrewsbury Town 3-1 at Vale Park.

Chris Robertson (23) and Jennison Myrie-Williams (30) gave Micky Adams' men the half-time lead and although Liam McAlinden halved the deficit just after the break, substitute Jordan Hugill made the points safe in the last minute.

Sheffield United's woeful campaign took another turn for the worse as Gillingham became the latest side to claim the former Premier League club's scalp, winning 2-1 at Bramall Lane.

Nigel Clough was relieved to see Chris Porter (19) cancel out Danny Kedwell's seventh-minute opener but his players could not respond to Cody McDonald's winner, which arrived two minutes after the restart.

Elsewhere, Bristol City were denied a third win of the season as Liam Ridehalgh (41) earned Tranmere Rovers a 1-1 draw at Prenton Park following Sam Baldock's 14th-minute opener.

Carlisle United's home meeting with Crawley Town also ended as a 1-1 draw - one decided by an exchange of goals between Liam Noble (47) and visiting striker Billy Clarke (88) that did little to propel either club up the league table.
