Chesterfield climbed to the top of the table with a 3-1 victory over Bury, while Morecambe secured a dramatic late win at Chester.
Milton Keynes Dons also thumped Notts County, and Bradford came from behind to beat Lincoln.
Chester had an opportunity to move to the summit of League Two, perhaps only for a few hours, but they were surprised by newly promoted Morecambe. The game looked set to finish goalless until Paul Linwood was sent off for the home team and Carl Baker converted a penalty four minutes into injury time.
Bury's Andrew Mangan (75) cancelled out Steven Fletcher's earlier effort (33), but The Spireites were not to be denied. Fletcher scored his second of the night after 77 minutes to restore their lead, before Jack Lester struck with six minutes remaining to take Chesterfield up to 11 points.
Louis Dodds put Lincoln in front after 26 minutes, but Bradford came storming back through Sungu N'Dumbu (35) and Joe Colbeck (79).
Notts County had drawn their first four games of the season but were left wishing they had claimed a point after being put to the sword by MK Dons. Keith Andrews (41), Danny Swailes (67) and Aaron Wilbraham (85) did the damage.
