League two round-up: 21st-22nd October 2011
The latest weekend of the football league season has been and gone, the npower league two is rounded-up in this article.
AFC Wimbledon 2-5 Crawley
Arguably the highlight of the league two schedule saw AFC Wimbledon heavily beaten at home by Crawley.
An own goal from Bush (3) and then a goal from Davis (9) saw Crawley race into a 2-0 lead, although AFC Wimbledon were level before the break. Another own goal from Davis (11) and then a goal from Midson (44) made it 2-2 at the break.
A penalty from Tubbs (54) restored the visitors lead with a double from Bulman (59 & 84) giving Crawley a 5-2 win.
Bradford 2-1 Northampton
Northampton let a lead slip as Bradford came back to secure a 2-1 win.
After a goalless first half Jacobs (58) gave the visitors the lead just before the hour a little after 10-minutes later, after a couple of quick goals from a Fagan (64) and Hanson (69), Bradford were ahead and held on for the win.
Burton 2-1 Bristol Rovers
Burton’s disappointing home form of late looked like it would carry on against Bristol Rovers but they managed to come from behind to win.
Bristol Rovers went ahead through Harrold (14) although Taylor (27) soon brought Burton level. 10-minutes before the break Kee (35) scored the decisive goal to give The Brewers a 2-1 win.
Crewe 0-1 Macclesfield
Just the one goal separated the sides with Macclesfield beating Crewe.
Draper’s (19) goal was enough to give Macclesfield a 1-0 win.
Dagenham 2-5 Aldershot
Dagenham were beaten 5-2 at home by Aldershot.
McGlashan (3) and Vincenti (6) had Aldershot in control early on with the advantage extended further through a penalty from Rankine (38). Nurse (43) looked to have given Dagenham hope late in the first half although an injury-time strike from Guttridge (45+2) restored a three-goal half time lead.
McCrory (80) pulled one back for the hosts but an injury-time strike from McGlashan (90+3) put the seal on Shots’ victory.
Gillingham 1-0 Oxford
Despite having two men sent-off Gillingham still managed to overcome Oxford.
Montrose’s (45) goal on the stroke of half time gave Gillingham a 1-0 win, although after sending-offs for both Martin (49) and Montrose (88) in the second half The Gills ended the game with only 9-men!
Hereford 1-0 Barnet
Back-to-back victories for Hereford were secured with a home win over Barnet.
The deadlock could not be broken in the first half but midway through the second a goal from Elder (66) gave The Bulls a 1-0 win.
Plymouth 0-1 Swindon
Swindon secured a late victory over Plymouth.
With a goalless draw looking on De Vita (82) struck late on to give Swindon a 1-0 win.
Port Vale 0-4 Morecambe
Morecambe secured an impressive 4-0 win at Port Vale courtesy of two goals in each half.
Price (27) and Alessandra (37) gave Morecambe a half time lead with two goals in the final three-minutes from Wilson (87), a penalty, and Fleming (90) completing the scoring.
Rotherham 1-1 Shrewsbury
It was a point apiece as Rotherham and Shrewsbury drew 1-1.
Grabban (22) gave Rotherham the lead but just before half time Cansdell-Sherriff (45) equalised for Shrewsbury to earn a point.
Southend 4-1 Torquay
Torquay suffered a second successive heavy defeat when they lost 4-1 at Southend.
After a goalless first half few would have predicted that Southend would eventually win 4-1 but goals from Ferdinand (47 & 54), Dickinson (66) and Phillips (71) saw them go 4-0 up before Mansell (77) scored a consolation for Torquay.
Accrington 0-1 Cheltenham
Cheltenham went to Accrington on Friday night and came back with the points.
Goulding’s (44) goal just before the half time break was enough for Cheltenham to win 1-0.
