League 2: Weekend round-up

2 March 2014

We round up the rest of the action from this weekend in League 2

Scunthorpe United missed the chance to go top of League 2, even if only until Monday night, as they drew 2-2 away at Newport County.

Lee Minshull put Newport ahead, only for the Iron to take the lead through David Syers, after Paddy Madden had equalised.

But Chis Zebroski’s 90th minute goal earned Newport a point, and meant Chesterfield stayed top ahead of their game on Monday night with Portsmouth.

Rochdale kept up their push for automatic promotion as Liam Hogan scored another hat-trick to hand Dale the three points against promotion rivals Oxford United.

Fleetwood Town were held to a goalless draw by AFC Wimbledon at Highbury, while a Billy Kee double earned Burton Albion a 2-1 win at home to Accrington Stanley.

Dean Winnard had levelled things up for Stanley after Kee’s opener, but the striker scored from the spot in the second-half to hand them all three points.

Plymouth Argyle continued their excellent form to close the gap on Blues in seventh, and the final play-off spot.

Durrell Berry, Lewis Alessandra (2), Curtis Nelson and Andres Gurrieri all scored in their thumping 5-0 win against Morecambe, who Blues face next weekend.

Hartlepool also continued their good form, with Jack Barmby, Luke James and veteran striker Marlon Harewood on target in a comfortable 3-0 win against bottom club Torquay United.

York City picked up a 2-1 home win against Exeter City to move into the top ten. John McCombe opened the scoring, before Michael Coulson made it 2-0.

Scott Bennett pulled one back, but the defeat leaves Exeter 18th in the table.

In the other games, Dagenham & Redbridge were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Mansfield Town, while Northampton Town drew 0-0 at home to Bristol Rovers.

Cheltenham Town also picked up an important three points, as they beat Bury 2-1 at home.
