Our review of the midweek action

DECLAN Rudd played the full 90 minutes on Tuesday evening as Charlton Athletic fell to a 4-3 Sky Bet League One defeat at Oldham Athletic.

Ricky Holmes netted a hat-trick for the away side, with his treble ultimately being in vain as Louis Dodds' brace alongside goals from Tyler Roberts and Shaun Whalley saw the hosts triumph.

Elsewhere in the third tier, Harry Toffolo was available for Scunthorpe United after serving a suspension but was left out of their matchday squad for the visit of AFC Wimbledon.

The Iron eventually fell to a 2-1 defeat, with Josh Morris' 74th minute goal proving to serve only as a consolation following earlier strikes from Wimbledon's Dean Parrett and Dominic Poleon.

Scunthorpe are now winless in six games and remain in second place, although now have a number of teams within reach of them including Fleetwood Town and Bolton Wanderers.

In the Scottish Premiership, Remi Matthews was an unused substitute as Hamilton Academical secured a valuable 1-0 home win over Aberdeen.

Mikey Devlin's early effort settled the contest, with Hamilton seeing Darian MacKinnon dismissed late on as Martin Canning's men moved up to ninth in the league standings.

Midfielder Ray Grant was also an unused substitute for Dagenham & Redbridge, who went down to a 2-0 National League defeat at home to relegation-threatened Maidstone United.

Goals from Joe Pigott and Delano Sam-Yorke gave Maidstone victory, either side of them having Stuart Lewis sent off for two bookable offences.

The Daggers' defeat further strengthens Lincoln City's position at the top of the division, with Dagenham's promotion hopes looking increasingly reliant on play-off success.
