Sky Bet League 2 round-up

22 November 2014

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink continued his dream start as Burton Albion boss as the Brewers moved joint-top of the Sky Bet League 2 table with a 1-0 home win over previous leaders Luton Town.

Phil Edwards proved the match-winner with a strike on 47 minutes, while the Hatters had Luke Wilkinson sent off late on.

Burton now only trail on goal difference behind Wycombe Wanderers, who lost to Hasselbaink's men on Monday in his first match in charge but bounced back in fine style with a 4-1 success at Cheltenham Town.

After falling behind to an early Steve Elliott goal, Wanderers struck through Paris Cowan-Hall, Steven Craig, Joe Jacobson and Matt McClure, while Lee Vaughan was sent off for the hosts.

Shrewsbury Town missed the chance to reach the summit when going down 3-2 at Exeter City, where a James Collins brace looked to have put the visitors in control, only for the Grecians to respond with a Tom Nichols double either side of David Wheeler's score.

Down at the bottom, Hartlepool United were beaten 3-1 at home to York City, with Keith Lowe netting twice and Jake Hyde also getting on the scoresheet after Scott Fenwick had put the hosts in front.

Fellow strugglers Tranmere Rovers were beaten 2-1 by Southend United at Prenton Park, with Rovers only able to respond through a Max Power penalty after falling behind to a Jack Payne strike and Will Aimson's own goal.

Piero Mingoia bagged a brace as Accrington Stanley beat Cambridge United 2-1 at the Crown Ground, while Aaron O'Connor went one better with a hat-trick as Newport County prevailed 3-1 at Bury.

Ashley Champers enjoyed a double delight and Billy Bingham and Jamie Cureton were also on target as Dagenham and Redbridge ended their recent goal drought with a 4-2 defeat of Carlisle United, who replied through Derek Asamoah and Danny Grainger.

Vadaine Oliver proved the match-winner as Mansfield Town edged out Plymouth Argyle 1-0, while Marc Richards did the damage as Northampton Town shaded Stevenage by the same scoreline.

Jed Wallace was another player to bag a brace in this division after Craig Westcarr had opened the scoring in Portsmouth's 3-0 win over Morecambe, but there were no goals in the game between Oxford United and AFC Wimbledon.
