Rhys Healey's 10th goal of the season helped MK Dons jump Rochdale in the League One standings after drawing 1-1 with Lincoln City on Tuesday night.

Healey's third minute free-kick was cancelled out by Laim Bridcutt's equally impressive strike for the Imps at Sincil Bank as the sides shared the spoils, and both climbed the table as a result. Dons jumped Rochdale, who were humbled 3-0 by Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, while Blackpool were beaten 3-2 by Gillingham as Lincoln jumped them into 14th.

A point for Russell Martin's side proved to be vital, with two of the four teams below them in the table prior to kick-off also picking up draws on the night. AFC Wimbledon held Ipswich to a 0-0 draw, while Tranmere Rovers also held Bristol Rovers to a goal-less draw. Bolton remain rock bottom after losing 2-1 to Doncaster Rovers.

League leaders Rotherham had their 'Bury game' on Tuesday, and saw their lead at the top cut to just a point as in-form Peterborough thumped Southend 4-0. But Posh have played three more games than Coventry behind them, who beat promotion rivals Portsmouth 1-0, dropped them to sixth. Wycombe are down to fourth after losing 1-0 at home to Fleetwood, who saw manager Joey Barton sent off.

Burton Albion and Oxford United shared a 2-2 draw at the Pirelli Stadium, while Shrewsbury's poor run continued as they were beaten 2-0 by Accrington Stanley.
