League Two Round-Up - Game One

Full results from this round of matches in Football League Two are available here on the BBC Sport website.

Big-spending Rotherham made an impressive start to life at the New York Stadium, brushing Burton Albion aside to record a 3-0 victory. Port Vale and Morecambe matched the Millers scoreline, as the Valiants cruised past Barnet at Vale Park and the Shrimps humbled Exeter at St James Park.  Cheltenham and Oxford, who will both have promotion ambitions, began the new term in positive fashion, recording 2-0 wins over Dagenham & Redbridge and Bristol Rovers respectively.

Newly promoted York City had a tough start to the season, losing 1-3 at home to Wycombe, whilst much-fancied Fleetwood took a point from their first ever Football League match, playing out a goalless draw with Torquay at Highbury (the other one).  Rochdale and Northampton also drew a blank, whilst Accrington Stanley got off to a flyer with a 1-0 victory away at Southend.

Elsewhere, a Jack Midson goal secured three points for Wimbledon against Chesterfield, and Martin Allen’s Gillingham beat Bradford 3-1 at Priestfield.
