Scunthorpe extended their unbeaten run to 25 games with a 1-0 victory at Torquay that places them level on points with Sky Bet League 2 leaders Rochdale.

Sam Winnall scored the only goal from the spot after Krystian Pearce fouled Matt Sparrow.

Jayden Stockley was sent off in stoppage time for violent conduct for Torquay, who are rooted to the foot of the table, nine points adrift of safety.

Rochdale could only manage a goalless draw at home to play-off hopefuls York and they top the table on goals scored as they are level with Scunthorpe on 75 points.

Max Porter's late equaliser rescued a point for Newport County in a 1-1 draw with promotion-chasing Chesterfield after Jimmy Ryan had given the home side the lead.

David Ball and Antoni Sarcevic hit the target as Fleetwood continued to snap at the heels of Chesterfield in third place with a 2-0 victory at Oxford.

Burton consolidated their place in the play-offs after Callum McFadzean scored the only goal against Plymouth.

Barry Corr and Kevan Hurst scored as Southend came from behind to beat Cheltenham 2-1 with Byron Harrison on target for the home side.

Northampton claimed a priceless 1-0 victory in their battle against relegation at Accrington, yet they still remain three points adrift of safety.

The game was only four minutes old when the Cobblers scored the solitary goal with Chris Hackett tucking home a long ball.

AFC Wimbledon were held to a 0-0 draw by Bristol Rovers, while goals from Chris Hussey and Tom Soares gave Bury a 2-0 victory over Exeter.

Mansfield had Colin Daniel to thank for a 1-0 victory at Morecambe, while the same scoreline saw Portsmouth ease their relegation concerns courtesy of a Adam Webster strike against Hartlepool.

Wycombe capitalised on the first-half dismissal of Dagenham defender Scott Doe to ease their own relegation fears in a 2-0 victory over Dagenham and Redbridge.

Doe was sent off for violent conduct before Steven Craig slotted a penalty and Max Kretzschmar hit the second.
