Crawley go top as Southend lose at Cheltenham and Plymouth off bottom

Crawley Town moved to the top of League Two with victory over Burton Albion after previous leaders Southend United were beaten by Cheltenham Town. Bradford City scored a late equaliser in the bottom-of-the-table tussle with Plymouth Argyle as Dagenham & Redbridge dropped to the foot of the standings. Shrewsbury Town lost on their travels, Swindon Town were held by Bristol Rovers and Accrington Stanley claimed a first away win of the season. Claude Davis and Matt Tubbs were among the scorers as Crawley enjoyed a 3-0 home win over fellow promotion hopefuls Burton. Southend ceded top spot in the table after going down to a 3-0 defeat at third-placed Cheltenham, who scored through James Spencer, Russell Penn and Marlon Pack. James Hanson's 86th minute goal earned Bradford a 1-1 draw at home with Plymouth, who were able to move off the bottom of the table with the result. Dagenham now prop up the Football League after letting a lead slip within a minute of scoring in a 2-1 home defeat by Port Vale, who scored the winner on 65 minutes through Guy Madjo. Shrewsbury lost ground in the battle for automatic promotion after Luke Guttridge's goal midway through the second half earned Aldershot a 1-0 home win. Swindon also missed out on the chance to keep pace at the top after Dan Woodards' 88th minute equaliser secured Bristol Rovers a 1-1 home draw. Aidy Boothroyd's first home game in charge of Northampton Town produced a 1-1 draw with Crewe Alexandra at Sixfields. Mid-table duo Morecambe and Oxford United drew 0-0, while Macclesfield Town against Gillingham at Moss Rose also finished 0-0. Johnny Mullins scored a goal in each half as Rotherham United recovered from squandering a two-goal lead to beat Hereford United 3-2 at Edgar Street. Accrington won away from home for the first time this term as goals from Paddy Amond and Craig Lindfield earned a 2-0 success at AFC Wimbledon.
