Saturday's League Two reports

Carlisle United 1-1 Accrington Stanley

Carlisle maintained League Two's only unbeaten record although they were held to a draw by Accrington at Brunton Park.

Billy Kee headed Stanley in front after half-time but former Northampton midfielder Nicky Adams grabbed a share of the spoils for Carlisle with his first goal for the club.

All the early play was in the Accrington half and Danny Grainger came within a fraction of giving Carlisle a 15th-minute lead when, from a short corner by Adams, he crashed a shot against the bar from 20 yards.

Seamus Conneely headed Sean McConville's cross off-target for Accrington but having frustrated Carlisle's attacks up to the break, they caught the home defence napping with a 58th-minute break.

Rommy Boco crossed from the right and Kee headed home virtually unchallenged from six yards for his third goal of the season.

Carlisle drew level in the 65th minute when Adams took a return ball from Charlie Wyke and cut in from the left to fire a low, raking 25-yard shot past Aaran Chapman which found the bottom right corner of the net.

McConville curled a free-kick wide from a dangerous position 25 yards out, but Reggie Lambe could have won it for Carlisle late on when he twice struck the goalkeeper with shots from inside the six-yard box following an Adams ball from the left.

Colchester United 2-3 Exeter City

Exeter edged a five-goal thriller to beat Colchester and end the hosts' unbeaten home record.

The Grecians went ahead in the eighth minute through Robbie Simpson's close-range effort, after Jordan Moore-Taylor's header had hit a post following a free-kick.

Simpson should have scored again soon after when he blasted over from 10 yards following Jack Stacey's pass.

And two minutes later, Colchester equalised when Sammie Szmodics converted after Luke Prosser had headed a free-kick back across goal.

Colchester keeper Sam Walker denied Jake Taylor before Colchester went ahead seven minutes before half-time through Kurtis Guthrie, who deftly headed in Brennan Dickenson's corner.

But Exeter equalised five minutes after the break through Ollie Watkins' fine low shot from the edge of the area, and Joel Grant restored Exeter's lead midway through the second half when he slid in to convert Stacey's cross at the far post.

Bobby Olejnik denied Prosser and Tarique Fosu and Szmodics hit the outside of a post late on as Exeter claimed victory.

Crewe Alexandra 2-1 Doncaster Rovers

James Jones struck late to earn Crewe their first home success of the campaign as they beat Doncaster in a frantic finish.

Doncaster midfielder Tommy Rowe had cancelled out Ryan Lowe's first-half header with an 83rd-minute penalty in an open encounter at Gresty Road, but Crewe still claimed the points thanks to Jones's winner three minutes from time.

Crewe skipper Lowe raced in to head home in the 14th minute after strike partner Chris Dagnall delivered a superb cross to the far post.

After Lowe's strike, Steve Davis's side enjoyed a double let-off when Jon Guthrie sliced James Coppinger's cross onto the bar and then Rowe failed to finish Frazer Richardson's cross into an empty net.

Andy Williams also failed to apply a touch to John Marquis's cross as Doncaster were guilty of spurning their chances.

After being under the cosh, Crewe emerged brightly following the restart and Jones blasted inches over before Dagnall's shot was pushed away by visiting keeper Marko Marosi.

Yet they needed some brilliant work from Ben Garratt who clawed away Matty Blair's looping header away from the top corner.

Marosi was equally impressive when keeping out Dagnall's diving header.

Harry Davis was then penalised for a holding offence at a corner and Rowe duly beat Garratt from the spot to draw the teams level and seemingly earn Rovers a point.

But Crewe won it when midfielder Jones turned and fired in the winner in the 87th minute.

Luton Town 4-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Danny Hylton netted a hat-trick as Luton hammered Wycombe at Kenilworth Road and stormed to the top of the League Two table.

The hosts dominated the early stages, with Wanderers indebted to keeper Jamal Blackman who denied Stephen O'Donnell.

Luton broke the deadlock on 11 minutes when Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu's fierce cross was turned in by Hylton.

Wycombe created little, their best efforts being Danny Rowe's wayward attempt and Matt Bloomfield's low drive, which was turned aside by Christian Walton.

The Hatters missed a wonderful chance on 28 minutes as Cameron McGeehan's tame penalty, won when Jordan Cook was brought down by Stephen McGinn, was easily saved by Blackman.

Mpanzu put a fine chance wide just after the break, before Luton had the second goal their play fully deserved. McGeehan's low shot was parried by Blackman, with Hylton tapping home his second of the afternoon.

Wycombe were back in the game on 63 minutes as Bloomfield escaped the home defence to find the corner, while substitute Garry Thompson tested Walton low down from range, before seeing another shot parried by the Luton keeper.

After weathering the storm, though, Luton won their second spot-kick on 88 minutes when Hylton was fouled and he converted the penalty, before Cook notched a breakaway fourth in injury time.

Mansfield Town 0-0 Cambridge United

High-flying Mansfield were forced to settle for a drab 0-0 draw against bottom side Cambridge in difficult conditions at Field Mill.

The first half was a dull affair with neither side taking control in the wind and rain. Cambridge did have the ball in the net after only four minutes, but an offside flag was raised before Luke Berry headed home from six yards.

On 32 minutes it took a superb sliding tackle by Stags defender Mal Benning to stop Conor Newton in his tracks as he shaped to finish.

Mansfield's three best goal attempts all came from Mitch Rose. The midfielder volleyed over on 11 minutes, forced Will Norris to block his 20-yard snapshot on 24 minutes and saw Norris well-placed for his ambitious 35-yard dipper just before the break.

The second half was no better, though Newton wasted the chance of the game for Cambridge on 61 minutes. Unmarked, and only eight yards out, he turned Berry's cross wide of the far post.

Morecambe 1-2 Leyton Orient

Morecambe fell to a narrow 2-1 loss against Leyton Orient to suffer their first League Two defeat in five games.

The Shrimps, league leaders at the start of the day, began brightly but went a goal down in the 28th minute through Liam Kelly.

The midfielder picked up the ball 25 yards from goal and tried his luck with a right-footed curler that skidded off the greasy surface and bounced over Morecambe keeper Barry Roche.

The hosts levelled three minutes after the break with a stunner from Kevin Ellison. Jack Dunn did well for the Shrimps and teed up Ellison who let fly with a fierce right-footed drive which flew past Alex Cisak.

Orient regained the lead nine minutes later, though, with a huge stroke of luck. Jordan Bowery drilled in a low shot from the edge of the box and a deflection off Morecambe defender Alex Whitmore deceived Roche.

Bowery was denied a second on the hour mark with a close-range shot that was brilliantly blocked by Ryan Edwards while Roche also made excellent saves to deny Tom Parks and Bowery again late on.

Newport County A-A Barnet

Barnet were left frustrated after leading Newport County in a League Two match that was abandoned at half-time because of heavy rain.

The visitors led after just 23 seconds through John Akinde, in what was the fastest goal scored in the English Football League this season.

However, it will not count as a goal now.

The Bees also hit the crossbar but will have to start again at 0-0 when the game is eventually replayed.

Notts County 2-2 Grimsby Town

Aaron Collins scored an 88th-minute debut equaliser as Notts County made it four games unbeaten by coming from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Grimsby.

The Mariners started brightly with Ashley Chambers firing off target following a neat flick by Shaun Tuton.

Tuton was linking up well with Omar Bogle up front and he wasted a glorious chance to give Grimsby the lead when he raced through only to slot wide of the post.

County's response was for Richard Duffy to force James McKeown into a save with a smart volley.

But it was Grimsby who made the breakthrough when Shaun Pearson's header from a corner snuck in.

Bogle extended the lead when he raced on to a poor back pass from Stanley Aborah and beat the advancing Adam Collin.

The hosts gave themselves hope when Jonathan Forte forced home his first goal for the club and they could have equalised straight when Vadaine Oliver was hauled down in the area.

Michael O'Connor took the spot-kick, but his shot hit a post. But Collins did snatch a 2-2 draw for County with a lovely finish from Oliver's brilliant knockdown.

Plymouth Argyle 1-0 Cheltenham Town

Sonny Bradley scored a stoppage-time winner as Derek Adams' Plymouth beat visitors Cheltenham in League Two.

Central defender Bradley headed home Oscar Threlkeld's angled cross from the right in the third and final minute of added time as Argyle made it four league wins in a row.

Town's Asa Hall had earlier smashed an 82nd-minute half-volley from substitute Amari Morgan-Smith's left-wing cross past goalkeeper Luke McCormick but against a post.

Bradley and Jake Jervis should have made more of close-range opportunities for Plymouth in the first half.

Bradley volleyed wide from a few yards out following Graham Carey's pinpoint free-kick to the far post from the right.

Forward Jervis should also have done better than slicing wide when another Carey free-kick was headed into his path by Yann Songo'o.

Substitute Arnold Garita then set up strike partner David Goodwillie, whose low drive from inside the box was deflected over the bar by keeper Russell Griffiths' feet.

Griffiths made a brilliant low save at the foot of a post to scoop out Garita's close-range volley before the late drama.

Portsmouth 3-0 Crawley Town

Curtis Main scored a first-half brace as Portsmouth eased past Crawley in their League Two clash at Fratton Park.

The goals were the summer signing's first in the league this season with fellow striker Gary Roberts also finding the back of the net to take his tally to four.

The first chance of the game fell to Crawley's James Collins in the second minute as he shot just wide after clever play on the wing from Enzio Boldewijn.

However, in the ninth minute Pompey left-back Enda Stevens' cross found Main in the box and the former Doncaster striker's effort soared into the roof of the net.

It was not long before the home side made it 2-0 as Roberts pounced on sloppy defending from Alex Davey in the 12th minute to place the ball into the top left-hand corner.

Pompey's third goal and Main's second of the game came in the 37th minute after Milan Lalkovic had his shot deflected by Mark Connolly which Crawley's goalkeeper Yusuf Mersin parried into the feet of the striker who smashed it in from six yards.

Stevenage 6-1 Hartlepool United

Tyler Walker claimed a brace as Stevenage bounced back from a drubbing at Grimsby to thrash Hartlepool United and move up to 15th in the League Two table.

Seven days after their humbling 5-2 defeat, Boro put six past hapless Pools.

Yet the visitors - who have failed to beat Stevenage in 10 attempts - took the lead early on.

When the match was just four minutes old, Jordan Richards cross was not dealt with and Nathan Thomas knocked in.

Pools then controlled the next 10 minutes of the match but little did they know what was to follow.

After 27 minutes, Boro nicked possession and a low Ronnie Henry cross was turned in by Tom Pett from close range.

Debutant Walker curled wide before he scored a lovely second. A deep corner from Michael Tonge was not cleared in time and - with his back to goal - the Nottingham Forest loanee took off with his back to goal to volley in to make it 2-1 at the break.

A high corner after 53 minutes was turned in by Dean Wells at the second attempt and four minutes later came the fourth. The action started from a break down the left side as Boro cut through Pools and Walker rolled in his second.

Number five arrived from the penalty spot 69 minutes in as Tonge drilled the ball home after being manhandled by Carl Magnay in the box.

Walker should have had a hat-trick just a minute later but his shot was comfortably collected by goalkeeper Adam Bartlett.

And the sixth came with 12 minutes remaining as Bartlett raced off his line but failed in a one-to-one with substitute Henry Cowans, who headed into an empty net.

Yeovil Town 0-3 Blackpool

Blackpool recorded their first league win since the opening day of the season as they eased to victory away at Yeovil.

Colin Daniel scored twice before Armand Gnanduillet tapped home in the closing stages to complete a memorable day for the Tangerines and a miserable one for their hosts.

The margin of victory could have been greater for Blackpool had Gnanduillet not skied a penalty after the bar after Liam Shephard had been adjudged to have pulled down Bright Samuel.

After a first half that was almost devoid of action, Daniel put Blackpool ahead on 59 minutes when he crashed an unstoppable 25-yard drive past Artur Krysiak.

Gnanduillet spurned the opportunity to double Blackpool's advantage from the penalty spot, but the visitors were two goals up moments later when Daniel eased Potts' cross past Krysiak.

Yeovil's misery was complete three minutes from time when Potts found Gnanduillet in space six yards out and the Frenchman was left to tap into an empty net.
