Sky Bet League 2 round-up

7 March 2015

Burton Albion climbed to the top of Sky Bet League 2 after Shrewsbury Town were pegged back by a late equaliser against Cambridge United.

The Brewers, who kicked off in second on goal difference, left it late before a debut goal from Sheffield United loanee Florent Cuvelier in the last minute shoved bottom side Hartlepool United closer to the drop.

Bobby Grant put the Shrews ahead in the 16th minute, volleying in a cross from Cameron Gayle for his third goal in two matches.

But Cambridge hit back deep into stoppage time through Sullay KaiKai to claim a 1-1 draw.

Wycombe Wanderers, in third, lost ground on the leaders after a 2-2 draw at Southend United, who climbed to fourth.

Barry Corr put the Shrimpers ahead after 14 minutes but Wycombe drew level after half an hour when Steven Craig converted Sam Wood's cross.

Corr took his tally to five goals in his last five games with a header on the hour but Wycombe snatched a point through Alfie Mawson five minutes from time.

Luton Town dropped a place to fifth after a surprise 3-2 defeat at home to 10-man Morecambe.

Jack Redshaw's 10th goal of the season put the visitors ahead and Laurence Wilson doubled the lead with his first goal since rejoining the Shrimps in the summer.

But Cameron McGeehan headed one back before half-time and Alex Lawless bundled in a 76th-minute equaliser. Morecambe then lost Ryan Edwards to a red card but the 10 men grabbed a winner through Luke Wilkinson's own-goal.

Bury slipped to sixth after having Adam El-Abd sent off in a 1-0 home defeat by Oxford United. Callum O'Dowda hit the clincher after Danny Hylton had missed a penalty for the Us.

Plymouth Argyle climbed into the Play-Off spots after goals from Anthony O'Connor and Lewis Alessandra saw off Northampton Town 2-0.

Tranmere Rovers tumbled into the relegation zone after a 3-2 defeat by Dagenham & Redbridge, with Cheltenham Town's point from a 1-1 draw against Mansfield Town enough to lift them above the danger line.

Elsewhere Portsmouth drew 1-1 at Accrington Stanley, Exeter City won 3-1 at Carlisle United, AFC Wimbledon beat York City 2-1 and Stevenage sank Newport County 2-1.
