Barnsley climbed to fifth in the table with a 3-1 victory over Charlton. Josh Benson netted the opener in the 10th minute, and James Norwood and Devante Cole scored in the second half before Jack Payne managed a late consolation.

Cambridge ensured they stayed ahead of both with a late comeback to defeat Morecambe 2-1. Jensen Weir opened the scoring in the 12th minute, with Jack Lankester drawing United level 20 minutes later.

It looked like both teams would have to settle for a point until the 87th minute, when Harvey Knibbs grabbed the winner.
