Sheffield Wednesday moved within one point of Ipswich with a 1-0 win at Accrington.

The Brewers took the lead for the first time when Victor Adeboyejo curled a stunning effort into the top corner but Crystal Palace loanee Jesurun Rak-Sakyi squared it all back up with 15 minutes remaining.
Jevani Brown smashed in a last-gasp, second-half stoppage-time winner as Exeter beat fourth-placed Peterborough 3-2.
