They were joined on the platform by Conservative candidate Glyn Chambers and the Green Party's Michael Keane (Oval ward) who attended in place of the local candidates.
A statement from the third Labour candidate, local businessman Ibrahim Dogus, was read out at the meeting.
UKIP was invited to take part in the hustings but did not attend.
