League Two Round-Up - Game Three

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

Gillingham kept pace with Oxford at the top of the table, winning 2-1 at Dagenham & Redbridge to maintain their 100% League Two record, whilst Shaun Harrad’s third goal of the season helped propel Cheltenham up to third as the Robins won away at Aldershot. Bradford climbed to fourth with a 5-1 thrashing of Wimbledon at Valley Parade, closely followed by Micky Adams’ Port Vale who picked up a 3-1 away win against Morecombe. Exeter and Accrington occupy the remaining play-off places, despite the Grecians hammering Stanley 3-0 at St James Park.

Rene Howe scored twice as Torquay registered their first win of the season at Plainmoor, beating Rochdale 4-2, whilst much-fancied Rotherham drew at 1-1 with Chesterfield at the New York Stadium. Fleetwood, meanwhile, picked up their first ever win as a Football League club with a 1-0 triumph over Burton at the Pirelli Stadium. Fellow League Two newboys York also had a good afternoon, winning 3-1 away at Barnet.

Bristol Rovers took a 3-0 first half lead away at Wycombe, only to see the match abandoned midway through the second period due to inclement weather with the score 3-1 in the Gas’ favour. Northampton Town, Argyle’s next league opponents, were denied by a late Ryan Cresswell goal as Southend struck at the death to secure a 3-3 draw at Sixfields.
