Sky Bet League 2 round-up

24 January 2015

Wycombe Wanderers stayed top of Sky Bet League 2 despite drawing 0-0 at Mansfield Town.

Gareth Ainsworth's side, who failed to score for only the third time on the road in the league this term, still remain one point clear at the summit.

Shrewsbury Town leapfrogged Burton Albion, who drew 1-1 at York City, into second spot after a dramatic 3-2 victory over in-form Stevenage.

After Adam Marriott fired Stevenage into a 10th-minute lead, Shrewsbury bounced back courtesy of James Collins' effort and a Liam Lawrence penalty.

Dean Wells' goal three minutes before half-time appeared to have secured a point for the away side, only for Collins to net his second two minutes from time.

Substitute Adam McGurk secured a late point for third-placed Burton after Emile Sinclair marked his York debut with a 70th-opener.

Luton Town are four points off the automatic-promotion places following a 1-1 draw away at Cheltenham Town, as Shaun Whalley netted their equaliser a minute after Zack Kotwica had fired the hosts ahead.

Southend United moved level with Luton on 47 points after Joe Pigott's second goal in as many games secured a 2-1 triumph at Portsmouth.

Adam Webster headed Pompey into a 24th-minute lead, but Ryan Leonard's leveller was added to by Pigott in the 70th minute.

Southend had Barry Corr sent off late on, just before Pompey's Paul McCallum also saw red.

Newport County remain in the top seven despite a 3-0 loss away to Northampton Town, whose goals came from Ryan Cresswell, John-Joe O'Toole and Lawson D'Ath.

Daniel Nardiello scored twice and missed a penalty to complete his hat-trick as Bury moved into seventh spot with a 2-1 win over Carlisle United.

Nardiello netted the opener in the 16th minute from the spot and, after Steven Rigg levelled for the visitors, he found the net again in the 62nd before missing from 12 yards.

Exeter City missed the chance to move into the Play-Off positions after conceding a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw at Oxford United.

After Aaron Davies cancelled out Danny Hylton's early goal for the hosts, Alex Nicholls headed in two minutes from time.

However, substitute James Roberts netted in injury time to earn Oxford a share of the spoils.

Jack Redshaw's equaliser denied Play-Off chasing Plymouth Argyle a first win in six matches.

Reuben Reid's 14th goal of the season put Argyle ahead on the stroke of half-time before Redshaw secured a 1-1 draw seven minutes after the interval.

AFC Wimbledon moved into 12th place following a 2-1 victory over Accrington Stanley.

Sean Rigg and Adebayo Azeez fired the Dons into a 2-0 lead, leaving Adam Buxton's 88th-minute goal nothing more than a consolation.

Scott Fenwick cancelled out Kayode Odejayi's opener as Hartlepool United, nine points adrift of safety, drew 1-1 away at fellow strugglers Tranmere Rovers.
