In the game of two in-form sides, Plymouth narrowly beat Wycombe 2-1 away from home to end the Chairboys’ unbeaten start and move up to second in League Two. Reuben Reid and Jake Jervis scored for the Pilgrims either side of Jason Banton’s equaliser.
Mansfield thrashed Crawley 4-0, to win their first home league game this campaign. Nathan Thomas opened the scoring before further efforts from Mitchall Rose, Matt Green and Craig Westcarr meant it was the Stags’ biggest win in the league for almost eight years.
Liam Noble’s stoppage time free-kick saw Notts County overcome Luton 3-2 at Meadow Lane. Izale McLeod’s scored his first two goals for County to put them 2-0 up, but Cameron McGeehan and Jonathan Smith equalised before Noble struck after Scott Cuthbert saw red for taking down McLeod.
Portsmouth remain unbeaten after a comfortable 3-1 home win over Barnet. A brace from Conor Chaplin and a strike from Adam McGurk fired Pompey to an impressive win after they’d been 1-0 down.
Meanwhile, Newport are still bottom with only a point, as they lost 2-1 to Morecambe. Scott Barrow’s stunning shot was not enough for a result, as Paul Mullin grabbed a stoppage time winner for the visitors.
York held on for a 2-2 draw, after Scott Flinders saved a Brett Williams penalty in stoppage time away at Stevenage. Eddie Nolan’s piledriver put them in front, but Teddy Sheringham’s side scored twice in three minutes courtesy of Chris Whelpdale and Charlie Lee, before Luke Summerfield made it 2-2 with another stunner.
Jabo Ibehre’s header sealed a 2-1 home victory over Dagenham, as Carlisle secured a third straight win. The goal was Ibehre’s eighth in League Two and he is now the top scorer in the Football League.
Elsewhere, Exeter and Northampton, who went down to ten men after Jason Taylor was dismissed, scraped 1-0 wins by beating Hartlepool and Oxford respectively, whilst Accrington won by the same scoreline on their travels to Bristol Rovers.
Finally, there were 1-1 draws between Cambridge and league leaders Leyton Orient, plus Yeovil and AFC Wimbledon.
