Here’s a round up of the League 2 action from the other matches played.

Blackpool 4-2 Doncaster 15:00
Colchester 2-2 Morecambe 15:00
Crawley 0-0 Accrington 15:00

Stevenage 1-2 Carlisle 15:00
Wycombe 0-2 Barnet 15:00

Plymouth now hold a four-points lead at the top with a three-one win at bottom of the league Newport ensuring the Exiles remain stranded at the foot of the table with Argyle heading off Carlisle.

A two-one win at Stevenage not only retains Carlisle’s unbeaten start to the season this also ensured the Cumbrians moved up to second place ahead of Doncaster who were beaten four-two at Blackpool with Gary Bowyer guiding Pools to a fine win at Bloomfield Road with them beating both Portsmouth and Donny in recent weeks.

Speaking of Pompey a two-one defeat to Notts County at Fratton Park meant Paul Cook’s side remain in fifth but lose ground on the top two and failed to capitalise on the Doncaster slip, the Magpies moved into the play-off places with this win on the South Coast.

Crewe were another promotion chasing side who slipped up with the Railwaymen beaten one-nil by Yeovil at Gresty Road.

With Exeter’s poor home form on-going they fell back into the bottom two following a two-one defeat by Cambridge after Barnet won two-nil at Wycombe to overtake the Grecians.

Despite leading against a struggling Leyton Orient side that first home win from Hartlepool in the league still hasn’t come with Craig Hignett’s side slumping to a three-one defeat against the O’s.
