Bristol City threw away a two-goal lead as they lost 3-2 at managerless Bolton.

Steven Davies scored two early goals for City, but Wanderers battled back - with the winning goal coming eight minutes from the end.

It took Davies little time to make an impact. A short corner routine resulted in Stephen Pearson swinging over a cross from the left and the former Derby forward connected with a acrobatic left-footed volley that gave Adam Bogdan no chance.

With their next meaningful attack, the Robins earned a penalty - much to the fury of the home support - when Woolford, running from left to right across the area, tumbled under a challenge from Ream.

Davies stepped up and confidently found the bottom-right corner from 12 yards as Bogdan went the wrong way.

The home side pulled a goal back on the half hour with Chris Eagles drilling a powerful free-kick under the wall after he had been felled on the edge of the box.

Bolton upped the tempo once more in the second half and levelled when Jay Spearing latched on to a neat through-ball from Kevin Davies.

And eight minutes from time Martin Petrov completed the turnaround after good link-up play from Eagles and substitute Lee Chung-yong.

Swindon could only draw with lowly Scunthorpe at the County Ground, despite taking the lead through James Collins.

Collins, back in the side at the expense of John Bostock, scored in the 18th minute after being played in by Simon Ferry.

The game changer came in the 33rd minute when Aden Flint was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Scunthorpe took full advantage of the extra man, and equalised 11 minutes into the second half when Karl Hawley headed in Mark Duffy's cross.

The visitors could have won the game when substitute Andy Barcham was sent clear. But one-on-one with Wes Foderingham, Barcham shot wide of the far post.

Swindon had their chances too, but Gary Roberts, Alan McCormack and Adam Rooney all failed to hit the target late on.

Yeovil beat bottom club Bury at Huish Park and were helped by the dismissal of Zac Thompson.

Thompson was shown a straight red in the 27th minute for a two-footed lunge on Keanu Marsh-Brown.

The Glovers made the numerical advantage count almost immediately, as Byron Webster gave them the lead just 6 minutes later. Matt Doherty's attempted clearance hit the Yeovil defender and flew into the back of the net.

Dominic Poleon's close range strike levelled the scores in the 74th minute, but Sam Foley secured Yeovil's second successive home win when he bundled in Ed Upson's corner two minutes later.

Torquay fought back from two goals down with ten men, but they couldn't hold on and Rovers made it back-to-back home wins.

It was a dream start for the home side. Tom Eaves opened the scoring with a delightful chip in the 15th minute, before Matt Lund's free-kick doubled their advantage just two minutes later.

Torquay's day was made worse when Joe Oastler was sent off for receiving two bookings with only half an hour played.

Manager Martin Ling tore into his players at half-time, and they came out fighting in the second half.

Rene Howe soon pulled a goal back - his goal equalling a club record of scoring in 7 consecutive league games. And former Rovers player Aaron Downes headed in the equaliser 6 minutes later.

Mark McGhee's men finally made the extra man count when Eaves fired home his second goal of the afternoon fifteen minutes from time.

Cheltenham slipped to their first away defeat of the season after Bradford came from behind to secure their first win since September 22nd.

Marlon Pack's second goal in two games had given Town the lead. Bradford's Andrew Davies fouled Jermaine McGlashan in the area and Pack confidently converted the penalty.

But the home side were awarded a penalty of their own on the stroke of half-time when Sido Jombati handled. Nahki Wells scored from the spot.

Wells then put the hosts ahead in the 68th minute, before James Meredith hit a late third.
