There is no change at the top of Coca-Cola League Two after two 0-0 draws involving the top sides.
Scunthorpe remain top after a 0-0 draw away at The Williamson Motors Stadium. Darlington looked the most likely to score for much of the game, but the league leaders held out to take a point.
Bristol Rovers and Shrewsbury also drew blank at The Memorial Stadium. The result sees Bristol Rovers join Scunthorpe at the top of the league on 15 points.
Matthew Bloomer scored with his head for Lincoln on the stroke of half-time to seal the points against Bury. Lincoln move out of the bottom two because of the 1-0 win.
Chester snatched a win with a late late strike from central defender Danny Collins to give Ian Rush's side the three points. Chester remain bottom despite the last gasp winner.
Gary Alexander scored his first goal of the season from the edge of the box on 20 minutes for Leyton Orient in their 2-1 win at the Aggborough Stadium.
The Orient captain opened the scoring before Matthew Lockwood increased their advantage with a 69th minute penalty after Tom Newey was fouled. Ian Foster scored a late consolation for Kidderminster.
Boston moved up to ninth with a 2-1 win against Cambridge. Jason Lee (pictured) put the home side in front with a header from a corner on 40 minutes. Jermaine Easter equalised for Cambridge five minutes after the break, but Austin McCann scored the 87th minute winner to make sure the points belonged to Boston.
A late penalty gave Yeovil the points against Swansea. Garry Monk was sent off for a proffessional foul on Phil Jevons, and Gavin Williams scored from the spot to give Yeovil all three points. Yeovil moved fourth after the win.
Grant Holt got the only goal for Rochdale with ten minutes to go away at Grimsby. The United forward scored from 18 yards to move his side up to 13th.
Southend beat Rushden and Diamonds 4-1 away from home in the most eventful game of the day.
Lawrie Dudfield scored with a low shot from six yards to open the scoring for Southend. Andy Burgess equalised for Rushden on 50 minutes, but just one minute later Rushden defender Rob Gier was sent off for a professional foul in the box, and Dudfield converted the resulting penalty.
Tesfaye Bramble scored the third for Southend, before Adam Barrett ended the rout with a 90th minute strike.
Notts County and Cheltenham battled out a 0-0 draw at Meadow Lane.
