Forest Green boss Mark Cooper and his son Charlie were both sent off as their side's problems mounted with a 2-1 home defeat to Sky Bet League Two promotion-contenders Wycombe.
Cooper senior was outraged when Charlie was given his marching orders in the 39th minute following a touchline clash with Wycombe midfielder Luke O'Nien and was sent to the stands by referee Antony Coggins.
Already 1-0 down to Matt Bloomfield's goal, Forest Green saw veteran striker Craig Mackail-Smith double Wycombe's lead three minutes after the incident.
Substitute Jack Fitzwater halved the deficit with 20 minutes remaining but Forest Green remain bottom, one point from safety.
Luton bounced back to winning ways in style by beating promotion rivals Lincoln 4-2 and maintained their four-point lead at the top.
The Hatters overcame the early dismissal of Alan Sheehan after an altercation with Matt Rhead, while the Imps also finished the game with 10 men as Harry Anderson was sent off before half-time for two yellow-card offences.
James Collins cancelled out Michael Bostwick's early free-kick for Lincoln, who regained the lead two minutes later through Matt Green.
But James Justin levelled it up again and second-half goals from Danny Hylton and Harry Cornick secured Luton their seventh win in nine league matches.
Notts County stay second thanks to Jon Stead's late penalty, which clinched a 1-0 home win against Port Vale, who had beaten Luton 4-0 on Saturday.
Kane Hemmings struck twice as Mansfield moved back into the play-off places with a 3-1 home win against Carlisle.
Exeter slipped three places down to seventh as they lost 2-1 at Newport, with Robbie Willmott firing the Welsh side's winner after Jayden Stockley's header had cancelled out Padraig Amond's opener for the hosts.
First-half goals from Chris Porter and Brad Walker secured Crewe a 2-0 home win against Grimsby and Stevenage beat Cheltenham 4-1 at Broadhall Way thanks to Matt Godden, Tom Pett's brace and Danny Newton after Mohamed Eisa had given the visitors an early lead.
Connor Smith received two yellow cards and after Mark Randall had cancelled out Sam Surridge's opener for the home side, Omar Sowunmi was shown a straight red for his foul on Cedric Evina.
The game was delayed for 10 minutes when the referee took the players off the pitch due to a drone flying over the stadium and after play resumed Thomas Verheijdt headed Crawley's late winner.
