LEAGUE TWO - MIDWEEK ROUND UP

18 September 2014

Round up of the midweek action in League Two

UNDER the floodlights of the JD Stadium, Bury came from behind and extended their unbeaten league record to seven games with a 2-1 win over Stevenage, also cutting Burton’s lead at the summit of the table to two points. The visiting Boro opened the scoring when Adam Marriott found the net after just ten minutes. But three minutes later the hosts were level through veteran striker Ryan Lowe and snatched the win shortly after the break, Danny Rose set up Craig Jones to score from close range.

Michael Appleton secured his first league win as Oxford manager as the U's beat 10-man Accrington 3-1. Danny Hylton put Oxford again before managerless Stanley levelled two minutes later when Marcus Carver turned in from close range. Michael Collins' 35-yard strike restored the hosts' lead and Tyrone Barnett confirmed the win shortly after with Stanley’s Joe Riley seeing red inbetween.

Northampton thrashed Hartlepool 5-1 to move up to fifth. Pools had been in front through Charlie Wyke, but braces from Marc Richards and Kaid Mohamed and a single goal Lawson D'Ath meant the men from Victoria Park were well beaten. 

Adebayo Akinfenwa scored his first two AFC Wimbledon goals to end top of the table Burton Albion's unbeaten start to the season, with Matt Tubbs scoring the other Dons other goal.

Defender Jermaine Grandison scored the only goal of the game as Shrewsbury Town ended a run of three straight defeats by beating League Two's bottom club Carlisle United.

There was late drama at Field Mill, where Alex Fisher’s last minute strike for Mansfield Town sank high-flying Morecambe.

Goals from James Dunne, Jed Wallace and Andy Barcham give Portsmouth a comfortable 3-0 win against ten-man Dagenham & Redbridge at Fratton Park, Andre Boucaud was dismissed for the visitors when the score was 1-0 for a second bookable offence.

Exeter came from behind for their first win of the season away against Cambridge. Former Portsmouth forward Ryan Bird put the hosts ahead but goals from Graham Cummings and Alex Nicholls confirmed a sensational come back and a crucial three points for the Grecians. 

Conor Clifford came off the bench to score a spectacular long-range strike to earn Southend victory over 10-man Cheltenham Town, who had midfielder Jason Taylor dismissed.

Paul Hayes header was enough to extend Wycombe’s unbeaten run to five with a 1-0 win against Plymouth, condemning Argyle to back-to-back defeats. 

Elsewhere there was two goalless draws between Tranmere and Newport, as well as York City and Luton Town.
