The chase for promotion continues to enthral whilst there were movers at the bottom.
Carlisle United came from a goal down to stay top of League Two with a 2-1 win at Barnet.
Derek Holmes' own goal (53) had but Barnet ahead, however, within a minute, Carlisle were level thanks to Michael Bridges' ninth goal of the season and the winner came 15 minutes from time through Simon Hackney (pictured).
Fellow promotion-chasers Wycombe Wanderers continued their charge towards League One with a 2-1 victory over Oxford United.
Goals from Kevin Betsy (17) and Tommy Mooney (60) put Wycombe in control but they had to survive a nervy final twenty minutes after Yemi Odubade pulled a goal back.
Rushden and Diamonds climbed off the bottom of the table after a 1-0 victory over Macclesfield, the goal coming from Drewe Broughton with ten-minutes remaining.
Mansfield eased their relegation worries with a 2-0 victory over fellow strugglers Torquay United, opening a nine-point gap between the two sides.
Danny Reet put the visitors ahead early and the victory was assured with a goal seven minutes from time from Simon Brown.
Bury also pulled away from the relegation zone with a 1-0 away victory at Shrewsbury Town, Richard Hope's own goal inside two minutes separating the sides.
Northampton Town, Grimsby and Leyton Orient all continue to pressure Carlisle and Wycombe in the automatic promotion spots after winning 1-0 against Wrexham, Chester and Darlington respectively.
Ryan Gilligan's strike (68) was enough for Northampton whilst Gary Jones' header (42) ensured victory for Grimsby and Shane Tudor scored the only goal for Orient.
Bristol Rovers survived almost the entire second half with ten-men to defeat Peterborough 2-1.
Rovers were already two goals ahead through Junior Agogo (36) and Richard Walker (54) when Agogo was dismissed for violent conduct but the visitors held on to claim all three points despite a late goal from Dean Holden.
The result means that Peterborough's 14-game undefeated run at home comes to an end.
Cheltenham Town and Rochdale played out a 1-1 draw at Whaddon Road.
Stephen Guinian scored just before the break but Rochdale levelled on 83 minutes through Richard Lambert.
Second half goals from Francis Green (46) and Jamie McCombe (79) helped Lincoln City to victory against Notts County.
Mike Edwards restored parity on 71 minutes for County but McCombe popped up to score the winner and keep Lincoln in the play-off hunt.
The day's final game saw Boston United win at Stockport thanks to a Julian Joachim strike mid-way through the second half.
