Scott Vernon had given The Latics the lead on 34 in minutes before The Valiants pulled level through Billy Paynter two minutes later.
Chris Birchall scored what proved the winner for Martin Foyle's side on 62 minutes before a Lee Matthews penalty late on meant the points stayed in the Potteries.
Finally, Chris Turner's new side Stockport County sent Danny Wilson's Milton Keynes Dons to the bottom of the table with an important 3-1 win at Edgeley Park.
