Sky Bet League 2 round-up

25 October 2014

In-form Luton Town moved to the top of the Sky Bet League 2 table after claiming a last-gasp 1-0 win at home to Northampton Town, as Wycombe Wanderers and Burton Albion both faltered.

Former Northampton midfielder Luke Guttridge struck a stoppage-time winner at Kenilworth Road as the Hatters secured a seventh straight league success to move one point clear at the summit.

Wycombe, who had been top, had to settle for a point when drawing 1-1 with Dagenham & Redbridge at Adams Park, Peter Murphy equalised for the Chairboys after Jamie Cureton had opened the scoring.

Burton, meanwhile, slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Stevenage after Ian Sharps scored a late own goal.

Shrewsbury Town are up to fourth thanks to a 2-1 home win over Portsmouth, with Jed Wallace putting Pompey ahead early on from the penalty spot before James Wesolowski and Conor Goldson responded.

Down at the bottom, Tranmere Rovers have now gone 10 games without a win but manager Micky Adams will have been happy to see them come from behind twice in a 2-2 draw at AFC Wimbledon, with Armand Gnanduillet bagging a brace.

The home side had taken the lead through Jack Smith and then Adebayo Akinfenwa.

York City also picked up a point in a 1-1 draw with Mansfield Town, with Diego De Girolamo putting the Minstermen ahead only for Daniel Carr to level.

Hartlepool United slipped to a third straight defeat at the foot of the table as Brad Walker's strike came in between goals for Ryan Donaldson and Harrison Dunk in a 2-1 win for Cambridge United at Abbey Stadium.

Derek Asamoah and Mark Beck were on target as Carlisle United came from behind to beat Oxford United by the same scoreline at Brunton Park, with Danny Hylton netting for the visitors.

Plymouth Argyle were emphatic 3-0 victors against Cheltenham Town at Home Park, where Reuben Reid, Peter Hartley and Lewis Alessandra got on the scoresheet.

Newport County drew 1-1 with Accrington Stanley as Joe Pigott levelled for the Exiles following Sean Maguire's opener, while it was the same result in the game between Southend United and Bury, with Barry Corr and Craig Jones getting the goals.
