Nottingham Forest held on to top spot in Coca-Cola League One despite drawing 1-1 at Port Vale tonight.
Tranmere had looked like taking over at the summit but lost a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at home to Huddersfield.
Those results enabled Bristol City to take advantage and move within a point of the lead thanks to a 1-0 win at Bournemouth.
Forest were stung by a goal in just 12 seconds from Michael Husbands at Vale Park and could not forge ahead after Ian Breckin's equaliser in the 33rd minute.
Vale finished with only 10 men when Husbands was sent off but still Forest had to settle for a point.
Calvin Zola and Chris Greenacre both struck in the first half for Tranmere but Huddersfield came back after the break through Andy Booth and Gary-Taylor Fletcher.
Phil Jevons hit Bristol City's 70th-minute winner at Bournemouth while Bradford also threw away a two-goal lead in a 3-3 draw at Doncaster.
Two from Dean Windass inside the opening 23 minutes had put the Bantams on course for victory but they needed a Marc Bridge-Wilkinson equaliser after a Paul Green brace and a James Coppinger effort changed the game. Doncaster finished without Graeme Lee, who was sent off for two bookable offences.
Rotherham remained bottom of the table after losing 2-1 at Oldham. Will Hoskins had cancelled out a Stefan Stam goal to give the Millers hope of a point but Paul Warne settled the match.
Tommy Mooney scored an injury-time equaliser against his old club as Wycombe denied Swindon top spot in League Two.
Royce Brownlie looked to have secured the win for Dennis Wise's side but Mooney had the last word.
That result meant Walsall stayed at the top despite a 1-1 draw at Shrewsbury.
Tony Bedeau had got the Saddlers off to a fine start with a goal inside five minutes but they were pegged back by Neil Sorvel.
Bottom side Macclesfield are still without a win but claimed a point with a 1-1 draw at home to Chester.
Martin Bullock had given the Silkmen an early lead but Kevin Sandwith levelled just after the hour.
