Next up were Grimsby Town and Crystal Palace in a clash that took a very similar
path to the first game. Crystal Palace opened the scoring but were pegged back by a more clinical Mariners side that went on to claim a 4-1 win.
The third game of the day saw Carlisle United take on Reading in an end to game that could have easily gone either way. The Cumbrians twice had to come from behind in an entertaining first half before taking the lead themselves early on in the second. However, two quick fire goals from the Royals saw the game turned on its head once again before Carlisle came back a final time
to claim a 6-4 victory.
In what turned out to be a theme of the day, Huddersfield Town secured the final quarter-place despite going behind early on in their game with Rochdale. The Terriers went on to claim the lead before being pegged back in an even tie that eventually finished 5-3 in Huddersfield’s favour.
