Sky Bet League 2 round-up

27 September 2014

We take a look at the weekend action in Sky Bet League 2

Burton Albion bounced back from successive defeats to beat Cheltenham Town and return to the top of Sky Bet League 2 on Saturday.

Stuart Beavon's first-half effort proved enough to earn a 1-0 win over the Robins, who are now winless in five games.

The Brewers replace Bury at the top of the table after they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Exeter City.

Tom Soares had cancelled out Matt Grimes' early free-kick, but Jimmy Keohane struck in the 83rd minute to earn the Grecians their third successive win.

Wycombe Wanderers are up to second after Paul Hayes' strike secured a 1-0 win over Cambridge United, who have now lost three in a row.

Shaquile Coulthirst's early goal was all it took for Southend United to record their fourth victory on the trot as Phil Brown's men won 1-0 against Shrewsbury Town, who had Andy Mangan sent off late on.

David Amoo was the hero as basement boys Carlisle United beat Tranmere Rovers 1-0 to end their dismal 15-game winless run in league games.

Newport County bounced back from their midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat by thrashing AFC Wimbledon 4-1.

A double from Joe Pigott was sandwiched by goals from Ismail Yakubu and Aaron O'Connor as the Exiles extended their unbeaten run in the league to seven games.

York City suffered a third defeat in four games as Joss Labadie scored both goals in Dagenham & Redbridge's 2-0 win.

Chris Whelpdale also bagged a brace as Stevenage recorded a comfortable 3-0 win against Mansfield Town, while Ivan Toney's 33rd-minute goal earned Northampton Town a 1-0 win at Morecambe, who have now won just one of their last six.

Kal Naismith's early goal earned Accrington Stanley a 1-0 win over Plymouth Argyle, Luke Wilkinson and Jake Howells were on target in Luton Town's 2-0 win over Oxford United and Hartlepool United climbed out of the bottom two with a 0-0 draw at home to Portsmouth.
