David Button made it back-to-back clean sheets as Shrewsbury Town maintained their promotion push with a 2-0 win against Barnet.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a rare quiet evening with Barnet substitute Paul Furlong volleying his side's only real chance straight at the keeper immediately after the restart.

David has now kept five clean sheets in 12 games for the Shrews and the win moved Paul Simpson's side up to fifth in League Two.

Kyle Naughton helped Middlesbrough maintain their unbeaten run with a 89-minute shift on his home debut in a 2-1 win over Barnsley. Boro are now five-games unbeaten and go eighth in the Championship.

Jake Livermore continued his run of playing every minute since joining Peterborough United with his sixth appearance but could not prevent them from losing for the first time under new boss Jim Gannon as Cardiff City ran out 2-0 victors at Cardiff City stadium.

Adel Taarabt, whose fine strike against Preston North End in October has this week been shortlisted for Football League Goal of the Year, came on at half time with Queens Park Rangers trailing 2-0 against Ipswich Town at Loftus Road. Mick Harford's side did pull a goal back in the second half but it was not enough to stop Ipswich from taking the three points back to Portman Road.

In the Premier League, Alan Hutton came up against Jamie O'Hara at Fratton Park, with the latter supplying the cross for Aruna Dindane to head home in the 96th minute to give Portsmouth a point against Sunderland.

Robbie Keane's Celtic reduced Rangers advantage at the top of the Scottish Premier League to eight points with the Ireland captain playing the full 90 minutes in a 2-0 home victory over Hearts.
