Leaders Doncaster saw their five game winning run come to an end at Home Park. Plymouth’s 2-0 win ended their own sequence of three successive defeats – it took the Pilgrims back to the top of the table as well.

Carlisle missed the chance to go top when held to a 1-1 draw by promotion rivals Luton at Kenilworth Road. Portsmouth’s 1-0 win at Grimsby saw Pompey retain 4th place, ahead of the Hatters, closing to within five points of automatic promotion.

Another away win for Exeter boosted their survival hopes, moving the Grecians five points clear of the bottom two. Cheltenham remain second-bottom after this 3-1 defeat at Whaddon Road.

Crawley and Crewe are around the midtable mark but the Red Devils are now behind the Railwaymen on goal difference alone after a 2-0 win at Gresty Road.

Cambridge’s emphatic win at Hartlepool moved them up to 9th and a couple of points off the play-offs. Pools’ 5-0 defeat was a sixth in the last eight with all five goals coming in the second half.

Leyton Orient eased their relegation worries whilst worsening Accrington’s after a 1-0 win at Brisbane Road with the points were shared in a 0-0 draw between Mansfield and Colchester at Field Mill.

A three game losing run could have ended but Newport’s game with Morecambe had to be abandoned with the Exiles a goal up at the time. They remain rooted to the bottom of the Football League.

Notts County’s sixth straight defeat sees the Magpies continue to plummet towards the bottom two. In contrast Wycombe’s 2-0 win at Meadow Lane was fifth in a row to consolidate a play-off place.

The battle between two play-off chasing sides ended with Blackpool securing a 2-0 win against Stevenage at Broadhall Way.

Yeovil and Barnet are also pushing for a place in the top seven. The Glovers had started Saturday in these positions but a 1-0 defeat at Huish Park saw them drop out, the Bees are now outside of this on goal difference alone.
