Cheltenham Town 0-3 Colchester United 19:45
Crewe Alexandra 2-1 Morecambe 19:45
Grimsby Town 2-2 Carlisle United 19:45

Notts County 0-1 Cambridge United 19:45
Plymouth Argyle 0-2 Barnet 19:45
Yeovil Town P-P Crawley Town 19:45

Plymouth remain at the top of the top of the table despite the fact Argyle were beaten, for a second game in succession and both of them at Home Park, by Barnet went away with a 2-0 win.

The gap was closed marginally by Carlisle but the Cumbrians had to settle for a point from a 2-2 draw at Blundell Park against play-off chasing Grimsby. Doncaster, who didn’t have a game, remain in third with Portsmouth closing the gap, moving up to fourth in the process, after a 3-1 win over Luton at Kenilworth Road.

Crewe, who hold the final play-off place, beat struggling Morecambe 2-1, who remain just above the relegation zone. Blackpool‘s good run, which had taken them into a play-off place, ended with a 1-0 defeat at Mansfield as the Stags’ improved form under new boss Steve Evans continued.

A second successive home win was secured by Hartlepool, who had to wait until a couple of weeks ago for a first Victoria Park win, when they won 2-0 against Accrington.

Defeat for Newport meant they dropped back to the bottom of the Football League once more after a 1-0 defeat against Wycombe at Rodney Parade. Exeter climbed out of the bottom two following a 1-0 win at Leyton Orient as the Grecians moved above Orient, with both outside of the bottom two.

Newport were joined in the relegation places by Cheltenham after a 3-0 defeat against Colchester, who had dropped into the bottom two prior to this game at Whaddon Road.
