Lots of draw in League 2 this weekend but the majority of those at the top end of the table did collect wins.

Plymouth maintained their cushion five-point cushion at the top after a two-one win at Stevenage as Manager of the Month Derek Adams celebrated this with another Argyle win.

The pressure is kept on though by Doncaster who won by the odd goal in five at the Keepmoat, Darren Ferguson’s side edging out Barnet three-two to keep second place ahead of Carlisle who maintained the only unbeaten record this season.

An impressive three-nil win at Morecambe not only kept Carlisle in third and (as said) extending the club record unbeaten run with Portsmouth getting back on track (following successive defeats) with a one-nil win at Leyton Orient to move Pompey back up to fourth and just outside of the automatic promotion spots.

Crewe’s point (one-one) at another promotion candidate Luton took the Railwaymen into the top seven at the expense of Notts County, who dropped down to eighth after a three-one defeat at rivals Mansfield.

The bottom three remained as they were after they all drew.

Cheltenham’s point at Accrington (one-one) kept the outside of the relegation places with Exeter’s poor home form continuing, although the Grecians did collect a point in a goalless draw against a decent Grimsby side.

Bottom place is the position no one wants but Newport ‘keep’ this but will be happy enough with the point collected at Colchester with the nil-nil draw pleasing the Exiles more than it would have the U’s at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
