League Two Round-Up - Game Two

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

Oxford United, who meet Argyle at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday, sit atop League Two after picking up a 2-0 victory over a Southend side who played for more than an hour with ten men after Michael Timlin picked up two bookings in the opening 27 minutes. Gillingham, who beat Wycombe 1-0, and Accrington Stanley, who maintained their fine early season form with a 2-0 win over Port Vale, are the only other teams to have a 100% record after two matches. Paul Sturrock’s Shrimpers, meanwhile, find themselves bottom of the pile and are the only side yet to pick up a point.

Big spenders and pre-season favourites Rotherham and Fleetwood had a difficult evening; the Millers lost 2-1 to Northampton while last season’s Blue Square Premier champions suffered a 1-0 reverse at Valley Parade. Martin Ling’s Torquay drew their second game on the trot, 2-2 at home against Cheltenham, whilst Exeter bounced back from their opening day disappointment with a 2-1 victory away at Aldershot.

The game of the evening took place at the Pirelli Stadium, where Burton scored four goals in the opening 20 minutes of a 6-2 victory over Wimbledon. York City twice came from behind to claim a point in their 2-2 draw at Morecambe, while Barnet and Bristol Rovers and Chesterfield and Rochdale played out 1-1 draws.
