Leyton Orient are top of the pile in League Two after recording their third straight win this season. Second-half strikes from Jay Simpson, Blair Turgott and Ollie Palmer gave the O’s a convincing 3-0 home win over Stevenage.

Second-placed Wycombe Wanderers can also boast a 100% record this season after defender Aaron Pierre’s header was enough to wrap up a 1-0 win for the Chairboys at Morecambe.

Last season’s relegation contenders, Hartlepool United, have also started the campaign in terrific fashion – recording their third successive victory in League Two after Scott Fenwick scored the only goal of the game in their 1-0 win over Newport County.

Cambridge United and Portsmouth are closely behind the top-three after preserving their unbeaten records in midweek, with United defeating AFC Wimbledon 2-1 thanks to Leon Legge and Barry Corr, whilst Pompey grinded out a goalless draw at recently relegated Crawley Town.

Goals from Callum O’Dowda, Kemar Roofe and Danny Hylton inspired Oxford United to come from behind to defeat Notts County 3-1 at the Kassam Stadium – their first taste of victory this term. Thierry Audel had headed the Magpies in front inside 21 minutes.

Last year’s Conference champions Barnet sealed an impressive 2-0 win at home to Northampton Town, with John Akinde scoring both goals.

Those 169 brave Carlisle United supporters who endured the gruelling 779-mile round trip to Plymouth Argyle and back were unfortunately not rewarded as the Cumbrians lost out 4-1 at Home Park.

Efforts from Jake Jervis (2), Reuben Reid and Graham Carey wrapped up an easy win for the hosts, although Joe Thompson did manage to score a last minute consolation to give those travelling fans something to shout about.

Exeter City made their trip to London worthwhile after beating Dagenham and Redbridge 2-1 in their own backyard for the Grecians’ second win of the campaign. Midfielder Ryan Harley and defender Troy Brown scored for Paul Tisdale’s men, before Jodi Jones pulled one back for the Daggers late on.

York City collected their first points of the season as James Berrett’s goal was enough to give the Minstermen a 1-0 home win over recently relegated Yeovil Town.

Bristol Rovers are adjusting to life in League Two brilliantly, with Tuesday night’s 1-0 win at promotion favourites Luton Town displaying their quality. Stuart Sinclair struck a last-gasp winner against his former club to secure back-to-back wins for the Pirates.

And finally; Sean McConville scored the only goal of the game to give Accrington Stanley their first victory of the season with a narrow 1-0 win over Mansfield Town at the Wham Stadium.
