League two round-up: 26th November 2011
The latest weekend of the football league season has been and gone, the npower league two is rounded-up in this article.
Accrington 3-0 Dagenham
Dagenham slumped to another defeat with home side Accrington inflicting the damage in the second half.
After a goalless first half Lindfield (57) gave Accrington the lead just before the hour but it was a double from Amond (83 & 84) in a minute in the final 10-minutes that secured a 3-0 win.
Burton 3-2 AFC Wimbledon
There was not a lot between Burton and AFC Wimbledon but the one goal in five that there was came in Burton’s favour.
A double from Kee (14 & 29) had Burton in control in the opening 30-minutes but a strike from L Moore (45) on half time brought AFC Wimbledon back into the game. Just after the hour Bolder (62) extended the home sides advantage again before an own goal from Webster (82) made for a nervous final few minutes.
An equaliser could not be found though with the hosts holding on to win 3-2.
Crewe 1-0 Hereford
Just the one goal separated the sides although this goal came in favour of the hosts Crewe against Hereford.
After a goalless first half a strike on the hour from Powell (60) gave Crewe a 1-0 win.
Gillingham 0-0 Bradford
Bradford came away from Gillingham with a point, something that I suspect they would be happier with than the hosts.
No one could force a breakthrough so this draw was a 0-0 one.
Oxford 1-3 Cheltenham
10-men Oxford were beaten at home by Cheltenham.
Jombati’s (8) early strike sent Cheltenham into the break ahead with Oxford’s job made even harder with Davis’ (55) sending off early in the second half for a second booking. Spencer (56) immediately extended the visitors lead to make this tougher still.
Leven (82) gave Oxford hope, and set up a potential grandstand finish but Mohamed (86) soon struck again for the visitors to secure a 3-1 win.
Plymouth 4-1 Northampton
An astonishing first half blitz saw struggling Plymouth record an emphatic home win over Northampton.
A penalty from Walton (8) set Plymouth on their way with Chadwick (9) instantly adding a second with the third from Atkinson (17) coming less than 10-minutes later. There was time for a fourth before the break when Hemmings (44) also scored.
Akinfenwa (90+3) scored a second half injury-time consolation but it was Plymouth’s afternoon with them winning 4-1.
Rotherham 1-2 Crawley
Home side Rotherham let a lead slip to be beaten by high-flyers Crawley.
Williams (20) sent Rotherham into the break ahead but second half strikes from Barnett (48) and Simpson (68) gave Crawley a 2-1 win.
Shrewsbury 2-0 Morecambe
Shrewsbury proved too strong for visiting Morecambe, with the hosts collecting the points.
A Wroe (39) penalty late in the first half was added to by Wright (88) late in the second to give Shrewsbury a 2-0 win.
Southend 1-1 Bristol Rovers
Southend were unable to hold onto a lead that they held so had to settle for a draw against Bristol Rovers in the end.
Neither side could break through in the first half but Harris (66) managed this midway through the second to give Southend the lead. This was short-lived though with Harrold (77) striking 10-minutes later to see the game end in a 1-1 draw.
Swindon 2-0 Aldershot
Two goals in the second half were enough for Swindon to beat Aldershot.
After a goalless first half Jervis (52) struck early in the second with an own goal from Jones (71) securing Swindon a 2-0 home win.
Barnet 2-1 Macclesfield
A double strike late in the first half set Barnet on their way to a home win over Macclesfield on Friday.
Two penalties from McLeod (41 & 45) in the final 5-minutes of the first half set Barnet on their way to victory. A second half effort from Hamshaw (61) was not enough as they lost 2-1, with them also losing a man with Draper (63) sent off soon after this goal.
Port Vale 0-0 Torquay
The points were shared between Port Vale and Torquay on Friday evening.
No breakthrough could be managed by either side with the points shared in a 0-0 draw.
