The League 2 season continued with the latest round of matches played over the weekend.

Plymouth extended their lead at the top after Carlisle lost for a first time. Doncaster keep the final promotion place. At the other end Exeter stay in trouble as do Newport, despite a win.

Here’s a round up of the League 2 action from the other matches played.


Sat 12 Nov 2016 – League Two
Newport 2-0 Carlisle 13:00
Blackpool 4-0 Notts County 15:00
Colchester 0-3 Leyton Orient 15:00
Crawley 1-3 Cambridge 15:00
Crewe 1-2 Plymouth 15:00
Exeter 1-3 Doncaster 15:00
Grimsby 2-2 Barnet 15:00
Hartlepool 2-0 Cheltenham 15:00
Luton 1-0 Accrington 15:00
Portsmouth 4-0 Mansfield 15:00
Stevenage 2-2 Yeovil 15:00
Wycombe 2-0 Morecambe 15:00

Plymouth were able to extend their lead at the top to seven-points after they continued the unbeaten run with a two-one win at fellow promotion challenging side Crewe.

After Keith Curle claimed the Manager of the Month for October Carlisle suffered that jinx with a first defeat in the league suffered when they lost to bottom of the league Newport, who ran out two-nil winners at Rodney Parade. The Cumbrians stay second and the Exiles second bottom but the basement side closed the gap on those above them.

A three-one win at Exeter not only meant the Grecians remain in the bottom two this also meant Doncaster consolidated third place and closed the gap on Carlisle with Donny keeping the gap to Portsmouth who made it back-to-back league wins with Pompey eventually beating Mansfield four-nil at Fratton Park to move up to fourth ahead of Luton who also won.

The most convincing, if not impressive, win at Bloomfield Road this season Blackpool have managed came when Pools ran out four-nil winners over Notts County with Leyton Orient also impressive winners when struggling Orient won three-nil at Colchester.

It’s taken some time but Hartlepool gained that Victoria Park win after a two-nil win over Cheltenham, who continue to find the going tough since returning to the Football League but do remain out of trouble with Cambridge doing this too with a three-one win at Crawley.
