Lincoln beat Swindon 4-1 to maintain their 100 per cent start in Sky Bet League Two.

John Akinde set the Imps on their way with a penalty after 10 minutes, with defender Michael Bostwick adding a second from a corner.

Michael Doughty pulled one back from the penalty spot before half-time, but late goals from Harry Toffolo and substitute Matt Green made sure of two wins from two.

Exeter also have maximum points after a 2-0 win at Morecombe, who have now lost both their opening league games.

Pierce Sweeney broke the deadlock from the penalty spot on 43 minutes, with striker Jayden Stockley heading in another midway through the second half.

A last-minute goal from substitute Ousseynou Cisse gave MK Dons, relegated from League One last season, a 1-0 home win over Bury as they too began with six points from six.

Forest Green Rovers had looked on course to keep up their own 100 per cent start before Oldham hit a second-half equaliser.

Reuben Reid put the home side ahead on 22 minutes but Dan Gardner's penalty with 12 minutes remaining levelled things up.

Mansfield also had to settle for a point after a 2-2 draw at Yeovil, where all the goals came in the first half.

Diallang Jaiyesimi gave the home side an early lead, but Craig Davies soon equalised.

Yoann Arquin put Yeovil back in front before Matt Preston headed the Stags level in an action-packed opening 26 minutes.

Notts County, expected to be among the promotion contenders, are still looking for a first win after losing 3-2 at Cambridge following a stoppage-time header from Barry Corr.

U's forward Adebayo Azeez had scored twice after Enzio Boldewijn's first-half opener. Richard Duffy's header on 78 minutes then looked to have given the visitors a point before the dramatic finale.

Alex Revell scored twice in the closing two minutes as Stevenage won 3-1 at Crawley. Alex Reid's opener had been cancelled out by Ollie Palmer.

Colchester also maintained their unbeaten start with a 2-0 home win over Port Vale thanks to Courtney Senior and Ryan Jackson.

James Norwood's early free-kick helped Tranmere to a 1-0 victory over winless Cheltenham.

Macclesfield also remain without a point after going down 2-0 at home to Grimsby.

Jordan Cook put the visitors ahead on the half-hour. Macclesfield then saw Mitchell Rose sent off for two yellow cards in the 63rd minute, before Mariners substitute Charles Vernam wrapped things up with a minute to go.

Carlisle, though, picked up a first positive result after a 2-2 home draw with Northampton.

Jamie Devitt's opener was cancelled out by Kevin van Veen's header just before half-time. Matt Crooks then put the Cobblers in front just after the hour, but Hallam Hope soon equalised to earn a share of the spoils.

Newport beat Crewe 1-0 with a header from Padraig Amond - but only after Crewe's Paul Green had his 66th-minute penalty saved.
