TOWN weren’t the only League I side hit by a last-gasp goal on Saturday.
Leicester substitute Max-Alain Gradel scored a stoppage-time equaliser as the leaders drew 2-2 at second-placed MK Dons.
And Chris Taylor struck to bring Oldham victory after hosts Millwall had hit back from two down in another top-of-the-table clash.
Gradel’s goal ensured Leicester maintained their eight-point lead, with their hopes of automatic promotion further boosted after third-placed Peterborough lost 2-1 at home to Southend.
Leicester are now 14 points clear of Posh and it would seem only a catastrophic loss of form will prevent them from bouncing back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
Top scorer Matty Fryatt had put the Foxes ahead after just five minutes with his 27th goal of the season but Peter Leven struck either side of the break to put the hosts in front.
It looked as though Roberto Di Matteo’s side would take all three points until Gradel thrashed a 20-yard free-kick into the top-left corner.
Southend came from behind at Peterborough, where Dean Keates put the home side ahead from the penalty spot after six minutes.
Jean Francois Christophe (25 minutes) and a Shane Blackett own goal (62) hoisted Southend to 13th.
Taylor’s strike for Oldham put the Latics fourth and Millwall fifth.
Deane Smalley and Lee Hughes had the visitors 2-0 up after 10 minutes.
But that advantage was cancelled out by Millwall legend Neil Harris’ 56th-minute penalty and Ashley Grimes’ goal 10 minutes later.
Leeds moved into the play-off places at Scunthorpe’s expense after beating them 3-2 at Elland Road.
Iron’s prolific 21-year-old striker Gary Hooper twice cancelled out goals from Jermaine Beckford and Bradley Johnson as the visitors looked set to defend their place in the table.
But just as he did on the opening day, when Leeds beat Scunthorpe 2-1, Beckford struck the winner after 69 minutes.
